Bill Withers - July 4th 1938 - Mar 3th 2020 (R&B-Soul-Funk-Latin Jazz)



BILL WITHERS - Born on the 4th July and most definitely an independent man with 3 Grammys from a relatively short creative period in songwriting when he totally retired from the active artist side of music in 1985 and yet 35 years later his songs are still so beautifully entrenched in our consciousness around the world.

To write a song like "Lovely Day", that has never got tired and maybe will never lose its sheen of brilliance when we need a good start to the day.  It's up there as one of the greatest songs of all time.  The first song/record I ever bought was Michael Jackson's poignantly soulful cover of "Ain't No Sunshine" (the opening 4 bars drum loop intro was sampled on so many early Hip Hop records).  From Soul, Funk, Jazz, R&B and even Disco Dance music Bill Withers song's have warmly wrapped around us for a lifetime.

An incredible body of work from a one-off original. Thank you for your songs, long may they reign in our hearts..
