J.D. Souther

Souther started out in the band Longbranch Pennywhistle, before moving on to country-rock ‘supergroup’ The Souther-Hillman-Furay Band with Chris Hillman of Byrds fame and Richie Furay of Poco. At one time he rehearsed with The Eagles, but turned down the offer to join as a full member, and instead helped to pen some of their most well known tracks. Souther’s songs have also been covered by Bonnie Raitt, Roy Orbison, James Taylor, Crosby Stills & Nash and Joe Cocker.
