John Prine's music has always been an inspiration to me. The recent outpouring of love and loss around the globe at his passing has inpsired me to share my version of a John Prine classic. In association with Hillcrest Music Canada, I am releasing "Speed of the Sound of Loneliness" as a tribute to one of the finest songwriters the world has ever known.
In the early 70's I had the honour and privilege to deliver John's music to Australia through my position at WEA (Warner/Elektra/Atlantic. Then in London, beyond my wildest dreams I had the pleasure of overseeing the various weekend activities for John and Steve Goodman while on their UK tour including the Cambridge Folk Festival.
John Prine, thank you for the most meaningful music of my life.
SPEED OF THE SOUND OF LONELINESS is being distributed on the new HILLCREST 93 CD (www.hillcrestcd.com)
