Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Leon Russell. Leon began his career playing in clubs in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. After moving to Los Angeles, he became a sought-after session player, playing on numerous hits of the 1960s. As a sideman, he performed with scores of notable artists including George Harrison, Eric Clapton, the Beach Boys, Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. He also worked as a producer and arranger, and eventually became a solo recording artist in his own right. Leon Russell hits include, Delta Lady, This Masquerade, Tight Rope and A Song for You. Defying categorization, Leon is comfortable in many genres, including rock, blues, gospel and country. In early 2014, he released a retrospective of his career entitled Life Journey, executive produced by his longtime friend Elton John. We had the honor of speaking with Leon on his tour bus in Roswell, New Mexico.[visit Leon's website]

We had the extreme pleasure of sitting down with Counting Crows lead singer, Adam Duritz, on one of our recent trips to New York. We talked about Counting Crows newest CD, Somewhere Under Wonderland and got to dig in deep with Adam about the process of songwriting and the struggles and inner life of being a songwriter.
