MOST INFLUENTIAL ALBUM
A SONG FOR YOU | THE CARPENTERS
Karen's voice and lyrics on this album have influenced my entire career in every sense; how I sing, how I write, what I love. This album was the first I ever had and I always go back to it like a home base when ever I need to be musically centered again. Karen is like the musical mother I never knew and has been my greatest female influence.
