America and Al Stewart

Friday, October 6

America's breezy, folk-rock sound made them a favorite throughout the '70s. Their self-titled debut album hit No. 1 on the US charts and went platinum on the strength of their blockbuster hit, "A Horse With No Name." A year later, they won the Grammy® for best new artist. They continued with a string of hit albums and singles built on their signature melodies, rich harmonies and artful lyrics. Folk-rock musician Al Stewart is a master singer-songwriter who gained prominence during the British folk revival of the '60s and '70s. The quirky and talented musician is best known for his 1976 hit "Year of the Cat," the title song from the platinum album of the same name. An adept storyteller, Stewart tackles the lyrical themes you'd find in progressive-rock, but in a way that's adventurous without being pretentious, mysterious without being melodramatic.
