New York (October 14, 2011)—Writer/performer Judy Collins will participate in a rare one-on-one interview with music journalist Jason King at the upcoming AES Convention.
Set for Friday, Oct. 21, from 10:30AM to 11:30AM, the discussion will focus on Bohemian, Collins’ upcoming CD release.
It was once said that “If amethysts could sing, they would sound like Judy Collins.” Indeed, Collins has been a folk and pop music icon and a powerful influence on several generations of musicians and listeners. Her ethereal performances and top-selling recordings of songs like “Both Sides Now” and “Send in the Clowns” ultimately helped make songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Stephen Sondheim become household names.
Now in the fifth decade of her career, Collins is about to release Bohemian, her new album on the heels of her critically acclaimed 2009 release Paradise. Judy will chat with Jason King, music journalist, artistic director and associate professor of NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, about her life, career, and the making of the new album. The discussion will be highlighted by cuts from the forthcoming CD.
In making the announcement, AES Convention Chair Jim Anderson remarked, “The AES has always drawn major artists including Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Jackson Browne and Mick Fleetwood. But they are generally focused on visiting the Exhibits or working with specific manufacturers. This year’s show has attracted a trio of superstar participants, Tony Bennett, Ben Folds and now Judy Collins. We are extremely fortunate to provide their insights to our attendees.”
