I grew up in the 70's surrounded by such amazing original music with Singer Songwriters like Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Neil Young, Dylan, to name just a few. In 1975 I was 18 and played all their songs. Today their music is even greater and sweeter with the passing of time. I wrote this song in celebration of these living legends and ones no longer with us that have touched and moved our hearts through the decades. The true gift of music is not about business or riches or buzz or commercial appeal... it is about how it made you feel and these Singer Songwriters made me feel so very much and still do. In a world where competition drowns out the gifts of so many to find the greatness of one, I want to remember those voices and songs that live on and continue to inspire and speak to our hearts through a song.
This video has my home recording of my song 1975 as the track since the live version had too much background noise to hear the song and story. You can hear the live version here http://youtu.be/Cvu4R1TSXPI if you'd like.
