Terry Cashman was born in New York City. He watched baseball through the 50's and even played minor league baseball in the Detroit Tiger Organization in 1959 and 1960. In 1964, Terry went to work for ABC-Paramount Records. While there he wrote the hit songs SUNDAY WILL NEVER BE THE SAME, MEDICINE MAN, BUT FOR LOVE and SAUSALITO. During this time Terry met Tommy West. Together they produced all of the records of one of America's greatest singer/songwriters, Jim Croce. In 1975, with Tommy West and Phil Kurnit, Terry formed Lifesong Records. Lifesong's artist roster included Jim Croce, Dion, Henry Gross, Dean Friedman, Crack The Sky and Christine Lavin, to name a few. Terry is currently active songwriting, record producing, and developing properties for television.
