Louis York steps Behind The Rope. Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, that is. Between the two of these guys, they have worked with EVERYONE, and we mean everyone in the music business. By “worked with” we mean, written songs for, produced and everything else under the sun for a whose who amongst today’s top artists. Britney Spears. Let us just start there. Claude wrote “Circus" for Britney, the song, and album, that was recorded at a very crucial point in her life - right after her very public meltdown the result of which a conservatorship was formed appointing her father as guardian. Short of “Blackout”, Circus was the song/ album that launched her “comeback”. We delve deep into what it was like working with Britney during that time in her life, what Claude and Chuck think of the “Free Britney” movement and thought of the “Framing Britney Spears” movie. We also talk about working with Lady Gaga on her first album, “The Fame Monster”, Kelly Clarkson on her biggest hit to date “My Life Would Suck Without You”, Miley Cyrus on her original anthem “Party In The U.S.A.” and many others that we could not help but to ask about such as Rihanna, John Legend, The Backstreet Boys, Whitney Houston, and last but not least, Michael Jackson. The boys bond with David over their love of Madonna and the fact, yes it is a fact, that Prince is the biggest musical genius of our, or possibly any, generation! Of course, this dynamic duo is also here to chat about their brilliant new album, “American Griots” - the inspirations behind that, their musical idols, their love of the music from the 70’s and 80’s (we couldn’t agree more), and the message they hope is received from a listen. Finally, we chat about the lack of good music out today, the recent “virtual Grammys” and their stellar new girl group, The Shindellas. A hot new girl group? Count us in!!!
