JD SOUTHER FEATURING BILLY CHILDS
January 24, 2015 @ 8:00 pm
JD Souther (best known as a key songwriter, singer and guitarist for the Eagles) is joined by jazz pianist Billy Childs for a unique collaboration of two incredible talents that is sure to be and outstanding night of live jazz!
JD Souther composed and sang some of Eagles signature hits like “Heartache Tonight,” “Victim of Love,” “New Kid in Town,” and “Best of My Love,” and Don Henley’s super hit “The Heart of the Matter,” as well as writing three Linda Ronstadt classics. Souther’s album “Midnight in Tokyo” (eONe Music) is a recent live collection of his originals alongside Duke Ellington and Ray Henderson: an album he describes as “rough and smooth and wonderful; saloon music in the night.” Souther is featured on the hit ABC show “Nashville” as legendary producer, songwriter and mentor Watty White.
Billy Childs began a solo career in 1988 as a pianist and composer, with “Take For Example, This…” Childs has been awarded a Chamber Music America Composer’s grant, the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, and has garnered ten Grammy nominations and three Grammy awards.
