His father began teaching him to play guitar when he was just 2 years old. As a teen and young adult, he was a member of several punk bands in the Chicago, Ill. area where he lived.
But, now, Dave Hyde says he enjoys the production side of making music much more than performing.
"I spent years playing in bands. In recent years, I like producing more," Hyde said. "It's definitely a lot of fun."
Hyde, along with his wife Shannon, owns a home studio in Campbellsville and started a record label, Riotous Records, in March 2008.
