I was exposed to a lot of Classical music in my early years. In my teens, I became a regular customer of our local Folk Club, and the political climate of the times produced a proliferation of “Protest Songs”, and “Social Conscience Songs”. I started to lose touch with modern music in the 90’s and on… but every now and then I would still hear a song which would get my undivided attention. In 2007, “The Story” was such a song, and the initial attraction was Brandi Carlile’s raw and attention getting emotions during the song! Enjoy!
