JD Souther


A few things; JD is playing near me next Saturday, I have a ticket, got it a few months back, mostly out of curiosity and a desire to see/hear as many artists live while I and they still can.  Second, I recently watched the DVD The Sound Of My Voice (Linda Ronstadt), and he was interviewed there.  Third, I dug out my two (more on the way) JD discs, and discovered how fantastic his 2011 recording, Natural History, is.  Sound is wonderful (he thanks Kyle Lehning for mixing the record he wanted to hear), songs are great, its so fantastic.  If you like that style of "southern california singer/songwriter" music.  I do.

A good bassist I've been gigging with recently played me some JDS. I didn't get into him back in the day, caring for The Eagles not at all, Ronstadt a little, though Jackson Browne a lot. I was somewhat underwhelmed, but perhaps JD takes a few plays to reveal himself. His LP's are available used for real cheap,

@rpeluso, have you seen the Ronstadt documentary? Fanf*ckingtastic! I have a newfound appreciation for her. I don’t care what Costello thinks, she may be the "best" female singer of her generation.

Souther had a role in the Nashville TV series, and did a good acting job. Seen in various episodes were Buddy Miller, Vince Gill, and a few other faves of mine. T Bone Burnett was the show's musical director.
