Singer-Songwriter JD Souther Coming to the Halloran Centre This Fall
The On Stage at the Halloran Centre music series continues with An Evening with JD Souther on Saturday, September 23rd at 7:30pm. Hear the singer-songwriter who brought you the Eagles hits "Heartache Tonight" and "New Kid in Town" as well as his own smash hit "You're Only Lonely."
Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee JD Souther "is one of the most celebrated songwriters of his generation," writes Interview Magazine. "Raised on a steady diet of big band and jazz during his childhood, Souther has routinely returned to that music-as well as the genius songwriters of the early 20th century (Gershwin, Cole Porter)-for inspiration. On his new studio album, Tenderness, Souther combines these musical threads, striking a perfect balance between understated jazz and the ineffable pop narratives that have been the backbone of much of his greatest work."
JD's latest releases include Tenderness (Sony Music Masterworks), described by Uncut Magazine as an album that connects "LA's '70s golden age with the Great American Songbook" with songs "that sound like standards themselves," as well as expanded reissues of John David Souther, Black Rose and Home By Dawn (Omnivore Recordings).
Souther has penned countless hits for the Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, James Taylor, Don Henley, George Strait, Trisha Yearwood, Brooks and Dunn and others; while establishing a cult following as a performer with the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band and as a solo artist. As an actor, he has appeared in the TV shows Thirtysomething and Nashville, among others. A passionate animal lover and advocate, JD is also involved with Best Friends Animal Society.
