Kenny Loggins


As one of the most recognizable voices in music, singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins is a legend when it comes to producing hit singles not only as a solo artist, but also as part of the 70’s singing duo Loggins and Messina. You’ve heard his songwriting handiworks…Celebrate Me Home, This Is It, I’m Alright, Footloose, and Danger Zone. You’ve also heard his collaborations…What A Fool Believes, with Michael McDonald…and Whenever I Call You Friend with Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks. He was honored to be a part of a select artist’s list who sang on one of the most famous singles ever recorded - the famine-relief fundraising single We Are The World (USA for Africa ) produced by Quincy Jones. He has collaborated with many renown singers and musicians throughout his career such as Bill Champlin, Donna Summer, Graham Nash, Wynonna Judd, George Duke, Quincy Jones, Pages, Jim Brickman, David Benoit, Russ Freeman and many more. With over twenty eight albums to his credit, Kenny has remained active by touring and writing. He recently released his new album entitled How About Now…offering twelve new original songs plus a new version of the Loggins & Messina classic, “A Love Song”. Inside MusiCast is glad to welcome Kenny Loggins. (photo Carl Studna)

I was at the concert at beautiful Art park in Lewiston New York last night and was totally enthralled by the performance!!I have been a fan since the 70s and was just as capitivated by Kennys performance last night as I was in the 70's!!A consumate performer who weaves a spell of musical magic over the crowd!!3 encores and I woke up to "house at pooh corner" running through my head this morning.BRAVO!!!!and thank you. Your new music is evry bit as good as the oldies.The Band was smokin' hot too!Crosby put on a great opening act and is obviously a talented singer/song writer also.Thank you for a wonderful evening, please come back SOON!

Marianne,I'm glad you had a great time. BTW, I'm curious who Kenny had on bass and on second guitar/vocals. Crosby is a real talent, isn't he? We had a great time talking to him. Sounds identical to his dad.

Thanks.

Well, I wouldn't say he sounds identical to Kenny, but you can hear certain characteristics to his voice and style that resemble his Dad's. I do love his work, though. I am looking forward to hearing the rest of his record when it's released.

Eddy - I would assume that Kenny has Minneapolis native Paul Peterson on bass, who replaced Shem when he permanently left the band. If you go online to www.stpaulmusic.com that is Paul's website. Better than that if you keep surfing, you will see that Paul is from an utterly amazing family of musicians who play with some of the best in the industry. The family itself would make a great musicast interview. Trust me, you will be amazed when you see the list of people the family members have played with.

That sound really interesting. I'll try to dig a little about Paul and his family....I'm sorry....I've never heard of him. I feel dumb. But, in reality, there are so many great musicians that have contributed to so many projects that I've never heard of...sometimes I feel that we're just chipping away at the huge iceburg. So many people to interview!

Don't feel dumb Eddy - there are a select few people on the planet who are like we are. People who not only love music, but who actually care about who is playing the music...the studio "cats" if you will. Give credit where credit is due, you and Rick have enabled a terrific thing by your creation of Inside Musicast!

You are kind. Thanks. Me and Rick appreciate it. BTW, I'll be sending an email to our listeners to help InsideMusiCast move UP in the iTunes position....maybe even a front page of the Podcast area.

If we get enough people to review our podcast, they'll consider helping us out and move us up....and even although Im not a real iTunes type of guy....it WILL definately drive MUCH needed traffic to the sight and interviews.

So it you can, write a review on iTunes as soon as you can.....this could really help us expand our already growing audience.

thanks much.
