I love to interview artists with a mission beyond just music. And I love to interview artists I share a past with, in this case Inglewood CA, the town next to where I grew up and where I first learned to swim. Although Evan Taylor Jones is now based in Orlando FL, he grew up in Inglewood - decades after I did. He came of age during a period when Inglewood was going through some very tough times. Those times impacted him. Raised with two brothers by a single mom who died of cancer when he was 13, he turned a tragedy into inspiration and succeeded. That combination pain and joy infuses his music and his work for charity. Please tune in this Friday at 11:o5 am PT....this promises to be one of Music FridayLive!'s best shows to date.
