“I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing because you’re too old or too young or too fat or too slim or too ugly or too this or too that.”
Folks songs were my first taste of singing and Woodie Guthrie, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone were some of the first artists that made me stop in my tracks and listen.
