Crosby, Stills & Nash
David Crosby may call the nearby mountain town of Santa Ynez home these days, but it is Santa Barbara where he began his musical career and spent much of his youth. “The first time I sang in this theater I was 17,” quipped the 77-year-old two times Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recipient and founding member of The Byrds and Crosby Stills and Nash. He was referring to the Lobero Theater in downtown Santa Barbara, the oldest continuously running performance hall in California.
Just over four hundred lucky music fans filled the historic Lobero Theater in Santa Barbara to hear Graham Nash perform on a sleepy October Tuesday night. The iconic singer-songwriter is currently touring in support of his latest musical release, Over The Years. The 30 song compilation features over 50 years of hit songs from Nash’s illustrious career, as well as 15 demo tracks, 12 of which have never been released.
The Stanley Hotel and iHeart Radio are pleased to announce an evening with the legendary two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Graham Nash. Twice inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and with CSN, Nash is a GRAMMY Award winner.
The concert will be hosted in the Stanley’s historic 109-year old Concert Hall, which has a limited capacity of under 350 seats giving each fan an up-close and personal experience with this legendary artist.
Legendary singer-songwriter and social justice activist David Crosby is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, inducted as a member of both the iconic folk-rock band The Byrds — with whom he first rose to stardom — and the iconic Woodstock era-defining group Crosby, Stills & Nash.
David Crosby is set to release his new solo work 'Lighthouse' for October 21st. Michael League of Snarky Puppy is Crosby's producer.
Posted on his web site Crosby declares that he has a newfound passion to create fresh, original music. “I’m tilted towards pushing the envelope,” he says. “I’m tilted towards making new stuff. I think I’m supposed to.” 'Lighthouse' is a collection of stripped-down, delicate and introspective songs that showcases David complex guitar work and is enhanced by his layered harmony vocals.
If the spirit of the 60s was still alive, it’s probably not through the music. Nostalgia is what connects most folks to those simpler, but equally perplexing socioeconomic times in American history. On a grand scale, the human-be ins and connectivity that brought the young generation, the baby boomers, growing into adults of the late 1960s, was a time when youth stopped buying into their elder generations ideas of conformity and the lies about being patriotic by supporting a pointless war halfway across the world.
“Just had that . . . it's weird. Just had that little feeling . . . you ever get that funny little feeling [of] 'vujà dé'? No, not déjà vu. This is vujà dé. This is the strange feeling that, somehow, none of this has ever happened before. And then it’s gone.”
