Viva La Musica
In conclusion, you're all gay and I hate rock and roll.
-- Mr. Bad


Sure, it's easy to sell Vonda Shepard short over her singing on the runaway hit TV show "Alley McBeal." But few people realize that "V.S." has been in the music biz for YEARS before that show. I, for one, have been a longtime appreciater of her art and work.

I've been listening to Vonda Shepard for YEARS -- long before she was tapped to play herself as a regular on TV's smash hit "Alley McBeal." I guess it makes me kind of mad that when people think of Vonda, they only think of her work on TV. Because Vonda Shepard is so much more than that!

Did you know, for example, that she was once Jackson Browne's piano player? I bet you did not. That is what I mean by how it is a tragedy that people only know her from Alley McBeal.

Yeah, I know that old fans like me tend to get real bitter when their favorite musicians get real popular. But, well, DAMN! The tender and gutsy musical stylings of Vonda Shepard mean a lot to me.

Yes, I realize that her smoky, bluesy voice and luxurious piano arrangements are not for everyone. But noone can deny that she is a leading force in adult contemporary music. But maybe it's time for YOU, gentle reader, to give Vonda Shepard a second look. Dig a little bit deeper and you may be surprised by what you find.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
