On Tuesday, July 7, 2015, as John Batdorf finished Mastering his CD at Capitol Records, Ringo Starr was there to celebrate cause when Ahmet Ertegun signed Batdorf & Rodney, it was the same day that he signed The Stones, who were in the next room!

                                                        GREAT SINGER-SONGWRITERS!
                                    We've been following John Batdorf for about 14 years,
                      and have come to know that we will love ANY CD that he puts out, 
                                                         without listening to it first!
                                              (We pre-ordered the last one, and LOVED IT!)

John Batdorf has survived many careers in one lifetime. Starting with the 70's as a recording artist with Batdorf and Rodney, and then Silver. John made records and toured this country and Canada for most of the 70s. He headlined many shows, but as an opening act he got to play with a lot of great groups like America, Seals and Crofts, Dan Fogelberg, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Fleetwood Mac, The Doobie Brothers, Bread, The Youngbloods, Hall and Oats, Cheech and Chong, England Dan and John Ford Coley, Pure Prairie League, Harry Chapin, John Prine, Dave Mason, Kris Kristofferson just to name a few! A great time was had by all.

John Batdorf spent the 80's as a staff songwriter writing songs for America, England Dan, The Curry sisters and Kim Carnes, and as studio singer singing on hundreds of jingles, movies, and TV shows. He sang on four main titles including, "Doctor, Doctor", "Tom and Jerry Kids", "Garfield and Friends" and "Promised Land". He sang background vocals on some really great recordings by Rod Stewart, Motley Crue, Dave Mason, Eric Anderson,The Jefferson Starship, Berlin, Donna Summer, Dwight Yoakum, Boy Meets Girl, Mickey Thomas, Stan Ridgeway, James Lee Stanley, David Lee Roth, The London Choir Boys to name a few.

Then came the 90's and he started producing records and commercials. During that time he met and went on to write some great songs with his friend, Michael McLean. They have recorded 4 CDs together. In 1996 John got his first chance to score a CBS TV prime time show, "Promised Land". He composed all the music underscore for three years until the show came to an end. He went on to compose music for another CBS drama, "Touched By An Angel" which after nine very successful seasons is no longer in production. TBAA and Promised Land reruns still appear somewhere on the planet every day of the week. Soon after, he composed the entire musical score for a 2 hour made for PAX TV movie called "Book of Days" which appeared January and March of 2003. "The Best Two Years", which John also scored and wrote songs with Michael and Scott McLean, had a successful theatrical run in 2004 and is now available on DVD as well as the soundtrack on CD.

Now entering into the new millennium, John has recorded a new CD with James Lee Stanley "All Wood And Stones" (a highly original take on early Rolling Stones songs, done acoustically with tight harmonies) along with his first solo EP, "Side One." His first full length solo CD, "Home Again" is an acoustic guitar and vocal enthusiasts dream come true! John's 2008 CD, "Still Burnin'" teams him up again with Mark Rodney. The duo recorded a live show at XM Studios in Washington D.C. revisiting many of their great songs from the 70s. Also John and Mark have recorded two brand new songs in LA that are also included in the package. This marks the first new Batdorf and Rodney recordings since 1975! In June 2009, at last, after one year from writing to mastering, Johns' finest CD ever, "Old Man Dreamin'" is taking on the world! Check it out... When you hear John sing songs about things that really matter to him, and you'll understand why they mean so much to his fans that have spanned over three decades.
