“As a manager I went on a search for a producer for Trout Fishing in America. Finding Fred Bogert and the Briarpatch was an incredible boost to the band's career. Fred has the  qualities that all great producers have,  beyond being technically and musically  astute, he inspires and brings out the best performance in the artist.  Providing an atmosphere of creativity and knowing how to capture the moment are key. Bottom-line, results are what matter and three Grammy nominations, 2002, 2004 , 2006  while working with Fred says it all.”

Dick Renko

Manager for Trout Fishing in America
