Review – Chris Cornell’s Higher Truth: Sought and Sustained

“When it comes to captivating the attention of an audience for an extended period of time, the allure of effort without intention wears thin quickly. However, sitting through one of Cornell’s extensive acoustic sets isn’t taxing. His performances leave participants entirely mesmerized, thoroughly disappointed when its all over, wishing he would just continue on in an endless moodily euphoric loop, preaching the end of the world.
Case and point, last night’s thunderous boom of applause after his first exit – he performed an encore, capping off the night with Higher Truth – echoed the sentiment of the crowd; one of nostalgia, admiration, and genuine respect. Cornell recently joked that anything under two hours was not a proper show and he made good on that statement by playing well over that. In fact the entire show, including the phenomenal Fantastic Negrito (if you haven’t yet had a chance to listen in on his music, you really should) was about three and a half hours total.”

July 10, 2016 Review – Chris Cornell delivered ‘Higher Truth’ to Ravinia

“Chris Cornell exceeded expectations with his performance at Ravinia Festival in suburban Chicago on July 3. During his nearly two-hour acoustic performance, he proved that he is much more than the full-throated frontman from Soundgarden. If Cornell’s solo show seemed misplaced on Ravinia’s season lineup because of his grunge past, it outshined the outdoor venue’s recent concerts.”
“Chris Cornell did so much more with less during his Ravinia debut. He used his 2011 live album Songbook as a blueprint, and once again told stories and stripped down songs from his Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, and solo efforts to their bare essentials. He further enriched the setlist with the best songs from his latest release Higher Truth, and topped it off with cover versions of classics reimagined in his own sound. Always considered one of rock’s best vocalists, Cornell is no longer superunkown as one of the genre’s best songwriters and live performers.”

Tribute to Prince

Prince’s music is the soundtrack to the soulful and beautiful universe he created, and we have all been privileged to be part of that amazing world.

I performed his song “Nothing Compares 2 U” for the first time a couple months ago. It has a timeless relevance for me and practically everyone I know.

Sadly, now his own lyrics in this song could not be more relevant than at this moment, and I sing them now in reverence as I pay tribute to this unequaled artist who has given all of our lives so much inspiration and made the world so much more interesting.

We will miss you Prince!!!
