About The Immediate Family
Danny Kortchmar’s resume reads like a who’s-who of the music industry. A renowned guitarist, producer, songwriter, and session musician, he has played, produced, and written for James Taylor, Don Henley, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, and Jackson Browne, among many others. As a songwriter, Kortchmar has either written alone or collaborated with numerous artists, penning indelible tracks such as Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry,” “All She Wants to Do Is Dance,” and “New York Minute,” as well as Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby” and “Shaky Town,” to name a few.
Together, Kortchmar, Kunkel and Sklar made up three-quarters of The Section, best known for both their studio and live work in support of some of the top selling singer/songwriters and solo singers in the history of music. Collectively, The Section helped define the sound of a generation.
Also on guitar and vocals is legendary rock guitarist Waddy Wachtel, who has played with many of the same artists as Kortchmar, as well as artists like Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, Bryan Ferry and the late Warren Zevon, with whom he co-wrote and produced a number of hit songs including “Werewolves of London,” which The Immediate Family has included in their set list. In addition to renowned session players Leland Sklar (Phil Collins, Warren Zevon, James Taylor) and Russ Kunkel (Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Carly Simon), The Immediate Family also includes Steve Postell on guitar and vocal. Postell is a seasoned touring and session player who has worked with David Crosby, Jennifer Warnes, John Oates, Robben Ford and many others.
