R.I.P. Phoebe Snow

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

We came out of the gate around the same time in the mid 70s. Phoebe actually had a solid hit with her Poetry Man while Kate and I showed with our slightly more schizoid offerings. I remember P. as being a very soulful talented woman and quite funny. Kate and I often ran into her in NYC, either in studios or venues catching other acts on their way up. Then life kicked in. Around the time Kate had Martha, Phoebe gave birth to a daughter with severe disabilities. There but for the grace of God..Phoebe retreated for a while, Kate moved back to Montreal and we weren’t really in touch anymore. In the words of Woody Guthrie ‘ this World was lucky to see her born.’
