Greetings from Chelsea – “From a Distance”

“From a distance we are instruments
Marching in a common band
Playing songs of home, playing songs of peace
They’re the songs of every man”
 – Julie Gold “From a Distance”

Glad Im on the inside – on a rainy day in Chelsea.

The other day I met the talented songwriter of the hit song “From a Distance” at Cornelia St Cafe in Greenwich Village. Julie Gold. She told me how her song had been rejected by an agent who called for someone to write hits at a pace like Joni Mitchell.

Fortunately, she had an attentive songwriter colleague, Christine Lavin, who loved the song and wrote out to her entire network, and shortly after Julie was called up by Nancy Griffith who with a smoky sexy voice said, “I like your song”.

And the rest is history … Since then, both Nancy Griffith and Bette Midler and others have recorded “From a Distance”. Actually an obvious song to consider in these historical times with its message that we are all – from a distance – the same. Also the very thought of helping each other.
A greeting from the Chelsea neighborhood in New York. Next week I will give two concerts uptown Manhattan …
