Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons joins host Jeremy Dylan to chat about his love for Sarah McLachlan’s 1997 album “Surfacing”.
Why did this album inspire Jake to become a songwriter? How did McLachlan and producer Pierre Marchand create a unique sound for the album? Why doesn’t Jake play all the instruments on his own records? Does Jake think his and Sarah McLachlan’s classical training is an asset or hindrance in creating great pop music? What key piece of songwriting advice that Bruce Springsteen gave Jake is reflected in this album?
