Park Drive Productions is a Los Angeles music production company owned by producer Tim Feehan, boasting dozens of indie artists that write in every genre including Inspirational. Every song is artist written/self published and can be cleared immediately for licensing in TV/Film and Media.
Park Drive Productions is named after the street Tim grew up on in Edmonton, Canada where he honed his musical skills playing Beatles songs in the garage with his six brothers as bandmates. He graduated from the University of Alberta in the mid 80′s and began his recording/songwriting career quite accidentally when his college band FOOTLOOSE was asked by a local studio owner to record a popular song he’d written. That song “Leaving Tomorrow For Maui” rocked it’s way to the top of the Canadian charts and became one of the most requested songs of the year in Hawaii.
Tim’s first foray into the Los Angeles music scene came when he was asked to sing alongside Whitney Houston for Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug video “STOP THE MADNESS”. The video also starred many of Hollywood’s biggest 80′s heavyweights including Arnold Schwartzenegger, Herb Alpert and “The New Edition”.
In 1986 he entered a songwriting contest sponsored by the legendary producer David Foster (Celine Dion, Whitney Houston) taking first place and signed with Scotti Bros/CBS in Los Angeles where he relocated later that year. The self-titled TIM FEEHAN debut was released in 1987 and gained five A.R.I.A. (Alberta Recording Industry Association) awards including “Best Pop Performance” and “Producer of the year”. The first single “Where’s The Fire” was chosen as the theme song for Charlie Sheen’s motion picture debut and cult favorite “The Wraith”. 1987 also saw Tim win a Canadian Academy Of Arts & Sciences JUNO award for “Most Promising Male Vocalist”.
In the late eighties Tim signed with MCA records and released “Full Contact” featuring collaborations with producer Brian “TOO LOUD” Macleod (Chilliwack, Headpins) and songwriters Bruce Gaitsch (Madonna’s “La Isla Bonita”), Gene Black (Heart’s “Never”) and Marc Jordan (Rod Stewart´s “Rhythm Of My Heart”). Musicians included American Idol judge Randy Jackson (JOURNEY), Steve Lukather (TOTO) and Richard Marx. During the down time Tim sang and produced “Dirty Love” which appeared in the James Bond film “Licence To Kill” and performed on both the “Arthur 2″ theme and Dionne Warwick’s gold album “Reservations For Two”. It was during this time that Tim, with co-writer Macleod, scored a cut on the legendary band CHICAGO’s million selling album “19″, while also providing background vocals for the project.
Meanwhile, Tim’s growing studio experience earned him a reputation as a first call session singer and he began working for dozens of legendary artists and producers, most notably BURT BACHARACH.
In the early nineties Tim was involved in numerous projects including a stint as lead singer in David Foster’s all-star world tour featuring Lee Ritenour (guitar), Nathan East (bass) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums). In 1996 Tim returned with the album “PRAY FOR RAIN” aimed at his growing fan base in Europe.
Recently Tim wrote and produced the critically acclaimed “THE COLOR OF SILENCE” for quadruple platinum selling teen pop star “Tiffany” and has worked with Brian Mcknight, Boyz II Men, Bone Thugs N Harmony and Sergio Vallin from Mexican supergroup “Mana” while penning songs for such diverse artists as KRAYZIE BONE, EDDIE MONEY and KINA.
Since the mid 90′s, Tim and former manager Brad Schmidt owned and operated L.A.’s legendary “BACKROOM RECORDING STUDIOS”, home to such artists as Justin Timberlake, DJ Battlecat and superstar producer ‘Tricky’ Stewart.
No stranger to TV and Film, Tim has had dozens of his songs appear on hit TV shows including “Desperate Housewives”, “Brothers and Sisters”, “My Name Is Earl”, “Parenthood”, “The Good Wife” “Melrose Place”, “Bones” “Raising Hope” “Cougartown”, “The Big Bang Theory” and many others.
Tim continues to write and produce groundbreaking tracks with such up and coming artists as PHX-periment, AGINA, GREG GIBSON, ALIH-JEY, SHERIDAN to name a very few! Tim is also the writer of the Katelyn McCarter song “Celebrate” and co-writer on her song “Smile”. Both are from the cd “Beyond Skin Deep”.
