Interview with John Ondrasik: Five for Fighting
John Ondrasik, the singer of the band, Five for Fighting, is an amazing artist not just for his terrific music, but for his ability to take a risk and (gasp!) actually write songs that are pro-American. He talks with us today about how he made it in the music business, his new album, Two Lights, (get it here from iTunes) and how he felt when his song, Superman (It's not Easy), became the anthem after the September 11th attacks. Superman is just one of the songs from his first album, America Town, that is appreciative of this country.
If you typically do not listen to podcasts, listen to this one just to hear some samples of the wonderful songs John has written such as Two Lights, The Riddle, World, Freedom Never Cries and 100 years--a song you probably know from the JP Morgan Chase commercial. You can visit John's new charity website at www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com.
