Bonnie Raitt


from the album Souls Alike         

track title:  “Crooked Crown”

music by Maia Sharp and David Batteau

lyrics by Bonnie Raitt

Imagine my glee when I got this call.  Bonnie wanted to run some songs to check keys and arrangement ideas with her band in the Bay Area.  So we proceeded to record 4 days of rehearsal with Ryan Doordan assisting and out of all those recordings the “Crooked Crown” from these sessions actually made it to the record.  They felt we had captured something special that day which later attempts couldn’t surpass.  I cherish Bonnie’s liner notes ‘thank you’ to me from that album.  She’s such an amazing person and I’m very proud of this credit.
