  • Bill Withers: Still Himself, but He’ll Allow the Attention

    LOS ANGELES — For musical stars of a certain age, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is usually a springboard for a career revival — tours, new albums, endorsement deals, all that. Not so for the soul legend Bill Withers, who joined the pantheon this year but who has spent the...

    Best known for such hits as “Lean on Me,” “Ain’t No Sunshine,” and “Use Me,” Bill Withers was one of the great soul men of the seventies. His earthy voice, straightforward songwriting, and fondness for acoustic arrangements worked the seam between R. & B. and folk, but he was also capable of deep funk, and his live performances could be incendiary—his Carnegie Hall concert, documented on a 1973 album, is a classic. Withers grew increasingly frustrated with record-label culture in the eighties, and by the end of the decade he had left the business. On Oct. 1, D’Angelo, Ed Sheeran, and others pay tribute to him, fittingly, at Carnegie Hall. The man himself will be on hand, but the specifics of his participation are a closely guarded secret.

    The four surviving members of the Zombies, with help from other artists, are touring the U.S. for the first time since 1965. The group produced the classic-rock staples “She’s Not There,” which hit No. 1 in 1964, and “Time of the Season,” which charted in 1969, after they had broken up, thanks in part to a d.j. from Boise, Idaho, who became obsessed with the song. “Time of the Season” was the closing track on their second album, “Odessey and Oracle” (1968), an astonishing, elegant collection, marked by intricate vocal harmonies and songwriting craftsmanship that rivalled “St. Pepper’s.” The album was a commercial failure but an artistic triumph, and they’ve never played it in the States, until now: they are at the New York Society for Ethical Culture on Oct. 9.

For more than a decade, The Stuttering Association for the Young has provided life-changing experiences for young people who stutter.

Over 70 million people stutter on a daily basis, including 5% of all children. Young people who stutter often face unimaginable fear and cruelty from a world that doesn’t understand them. Over time, they may recoil from the world, silencing themselves to hide their stutter, embarrassment and shame. Young people who stutter may also feel incredibly isolated and alone, and many face daily ridicule, teasing and bullying.

Since 2001, SAY has offered comprehensive, innovative programs that address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering including Confident Voices after-school & weekend programs, Camp SAY & Speech Therapy.

This year alone, SAY expects to award more than $400,000 in financial aid, so children from families-in-need can access SAY programs. To date, SAY has never turned a child away due to a family’s inability to pay and your support of this concert helps SAY continue that legacy.

SAY believes that every young person who stutters has a voice that matters and it is a voice that deserves to be heard.
