2018 release from the acclaimed vocalist.
A Song For You knits together classic songwriting of the rock era with classic songwriting of the standards era. It draws a through line from a modern classic such as Van Morrison's "Someone Like You" with the timeless romanticism of Victor Young and Edward Heyman's "When I Fall In Love". From Leon Russell to Sacha Distell and Jack Reardon. "Try A Little Tenderness" was a Tin Pan Alley hit of the 1920s long before the well-known Otis Redding '60s hit version.
The core value of this album is the immortality of great songwriting. The project includes the final work of the legendary Paul Buckmaster, perhaps the greatest arranger and concertmaster of the rock era. "A Song For You" was the very last song Paul worked on in a storied Grammy Award winning career.
