‘Spotlight on a Song’
Hello music fans! Guess what? I’m thrilled to be writing this post this morning from the beautiful Hood Canal in the lovely state of Washington…a mere 2 hours from where I live in Seattle. I’ve been in a remote cabin on the canal song writing for 2 days living off oysters right outside my door. (I do have pics to prove!) I honestly can’t imagine a more perfect spot to seclude myself facing the necessary creative energy one needs to write a special song.
Today’s song that I am sharing is by a Chicago favorite of mine. Jeff Tweedy is a long time legend, known by most from Wilco. I remember seeing Jeff Tweedy the first time almost 16 years ago in a tiny little bar owned by his wife on Lincoln Avenue. Although he was an acquired taste for me then, I appreciate Tweedy’s music and know his alternative country influence has molded me in so many ways. I am sharing this clip from his performance from the Jimmy Fallon show last night because he wrote this with his son Spencer who plays drums. A dear friend of my family is also playing the guitar which must be the most incredible feeling to play with Tweedy himself! Wow! Congrats Jim! (he’s on the left). Enjoy!
