Fascinating interviews with news makers, artists, and innovators

Musician and Actor Jeremy Clyde - My Father's Place Radio

Jeremy Clyde is a great guest who provides not only British charm and elegance but great stories! Listen to this one hour in-depth interview with Richard Solomon in advance of Jeremy's performance at My Father's Place at the Roslyn Hotel. (Chris Maffei - sound engineer for this recording - thanks Chris!)

Jeremy Clyde is not just one half of sixties British Invasion duo Chad & Jeremy, he’s also an accomplished actor and songwriter who recently embarked on a one-album-a-year solo project entitled ‘The Bottom Drawer Sessions’. Jeremy takes the stage in a rare solo show to launch the newest installment of The Bottom Drawer Sessions, performing new songs, some Chad & Jeremy classics, and stripped down versions of deep cuts from the psychedelic years.

The first of Chad Stuart & Jeremy Clyde's 14 U.S. chart hits was 1963’s "Yesterday's Gone", followed by "A Summer Song", "Willow Weep for Me", "If I Loved You", "Before and After" and more. TV appearances included "Shindig", "Hullabaloo", "The Patty Duke Show", "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "Batman". Their musical adventure-and evolution-continued with the hits "Distant Shores" and "You Are She," from late 1966, but they turned a corner with the September 25, 1967 LP release ‘Of Cabbages And Kings".

Looking back at the classic album, AllMusic guide says Chad & Jeremy "were gifted songwriters who could work outside the standard pop framework of the day, and Chad Stuart (who orchestrated the album) was a talented and imaginative arranger who gives the material a sound that's both rich and intimate."

That songwriting gift never left Jeremy Clyde, and through decades of off and on touring with Chad & Jeremy and on and on acting on British television--including "Downton Abbey"-- and the stages of London's West End. Beginning with the 2014 release of "The Bottom Drawer Sessions No. 1", Jeremy Clyde has --with more than 50 sweeping, evocative, inspired recordings- reclaimed the title of ‘songwriter’. He describes the Bottom Drawer sessions as “analog songs for an analog age”. With his 2018 U.S. tour dates - on his own and with Peter Asher - another title, "troubadour" can't be far behind.

Special thanks to Jeremy for a wonderful interview.

Kate Taylor is Here To Stay

Born in New England and raised in North Carolina, Kate shares her dual musical heritage with brothers James, Livingston, Hugh, and her late brother Alex.

Her roots run deep in the soul, gospel and rockabilly sounds of her southern upbringing and in the literate folk, pop and Appalachian stylings that comprise the balance of her family's shared musical legacy. In a recent show review, The Huffington Post said, "Her heart ignites a sea of beauty expressed in a myriad of harmony, rhythm and passion. Musically, she is seamless. She effortlessly and brilliantly flies through a wide swath of styles, from blues to country to ballad to gospel and beyond."

Kate fronted her own rock band at fifteen, and by nineteen had signed her first recording contract with Atlantic/Cotillion under the tutelage of her manager, legendary producer Peter Asher. That album, "Sister Kate," produced her first charting hit, a cover of Elton John's "Country Comfort," recorded with his encouragement and blessing. She later recorded two albums for Columbia Records, "Kate Taylor," produced by her brother James Taylor and "It's in There," produced by acclaimed Muscle Shoals/Nashville producer Barry Beckett.

Her duet with James, "The Shoop Shoop Song," from "Kate Taylor," became her next charting hit single and remains an audience favorite today. Kate's 2002 release, Beautiful Road, received 3 stars from Rolling Stone, who dubbed it a "heartfelt folk-rock gem." And her 2009 release, Fair Time!, her first of all original compositions, debuted to critical acclaim nationwide.
