Steve Forbert - Episode 825

Steve Cooper talks with musician Steve Forbert. Steve’s 1978 debut album proclaimed the singer-songwriter Alive on Arrival and indeed, the artist made a strong impression with a set of personal, sometimes gentle, musical reflections on life and love. He departed Mississippi for New York City in the mid-seventies and managed to carve out a niche in the vibrant club scene of the day, playing famous venues like Gerde’s Folk City and even CBGB’s. That heady period was captured on Alive on Arrival and on Forbert’s 1979 follow-up, Jackrabbit Slim. He has recorded 20 studio albums including his latest Early Morning Rain and just released Jackrabbit Slim live from Asbury Park. He’s received a Grammy nomination, seen his songs performed by Keith Urban, Rosanne Cash and Marty Stuart, and even appeared opposite Cyndi Lauper in her music video for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
