MusicWorks, Inc. and Paris Productions are proud to bring David Crosby to Vero Beach for the first time to perform in a special concert event from The Emerson Center stage on Tuesday evening, February 12 at 7 p.m.
It’s a good time to be David Crosby. The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee is experiencing an unprecedented surge not only in prolificacy, but in creativity.
In Crosby’s unparalleled six-decade career, the native Californian has created songs that resonate as indelible cultural touchstones for more than three generations, not only as a solo artist, but as a founding member of The Byrds in the mid-60s, Crosby, Stills & Nash (recipients of the Grammy for best new artist in 1969), and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. He’s collaborated with dozens of artists, including Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Phil Collins, Elton John and Carole King.
The folk rock pioneer, who was inducted into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009, has also served as our social conscience, not only eloquently writing about societal issues on such songs as “Almost Cut My Hair” and “Wooden Ships,” but continuously donating concert proceeds to likeminded causes. His towering influence and brilliant ability to capture the spirit of our times in his music remains undiminished.
The good news is that at 77, Crosby remains as engaged and energized as ever, with no end in sight. The creative floodgates that opened a few years ago continue to flow and Crosby delights that the songs are still pouring forth.
In the last four years alone, he has released three acclaimed solo albums that prove his musical passion to be as powerful as ever. His just released new album, Here If You Listen, is a collaborative recording with Michael League, Becca Stevens and Michelle Willis, once again confirming that the 77-year-old singer/songwriter continues that singular creative streak, delivering one of his most joyfully adventurous albums yet.
