Hal Ketchum - I'm The Troubadour

Staying Power

This is the solo singer-songwriter writ large - the 'troubadour' traditionally a performer of lyric poetry, and here Hal Ketchum sings the poetics of the folk/country artist with a beautiful voice having recovered enough and adapted from a debilitating nervous condition that surely tested his physical abilities but also surely not the creative impulse to continue. It is gorgeous stuff, a song like Stay Forever epitomising the glory of his singing.
