Hello Dear and Darling Fellow Travelers,
I have some exciting news!
2021 is the 50th anniversary of the release of my first record, “Sister Kate”.
My friend Peter Asher, renowned producer and musical artist, was my first manager and producer in 1970-’71. We recorded “Sister Kate” at a very exciting time to be in Los Angeles. The place was a magnet for many gifted, fun and soulful musical artists just on the cusp of extraordinarily creative and productive careers. Several of them played on “Sister Kate”. Peter would go on to produce many wonderful artists including brother James, Linda Ronstadt, Cher, Elton John, etc! Peter had had a hit making career as a singer in the British singing duo, Peter and Gordon, and went on to be the three time Grammy awarding winning record producer that he is!
Now, on the anniversary of our first collaboration 50 years ago, Peter and I are making a new Lp together.Â Â We have several of the original players from “Sister Kate”; Danny Kortchmar, Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel, lined up to play on this new record, as well as other favorite players of ours; Albert Lee, Waddy Wachtel and Jeff Alan Ross, Scarlet Rivera, my daughters and my dear Ukeladies.Â We have original tunes of mine plus old and new favorites that will be included in this collection.Â I am very excited to be working with Peter onÂ this project and to be going into the studio with him.Â Â We have started our recording!Â There will be updates as we progress.
We have plans for appearances in celebration of this collaboration and we will be updating you on those as the time progresses.
