An Evening With JD Souther
The Franklin Theatre
Thu, Nov 14 8:00 pm


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 latest 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.” Souther has also reissued expanded editions of John David Souther, Black Rose and Home By Dawn (Omnivore Recordings), followed by a reissue of Longbrach/Pennywhistle (September, 2018 / UME).
