Open Wings, Broken Strings

By Solange Reyner

Learn the story behind the tunes when Eddie Kowalczyk of LIVE, Art Alexakis of Everclear, and Leigh Nash of Sixepence None The Richer perform acoustic versions of their major hit songs on Friday, March 12, at the Adrienne Arsht Center. The artists will explain their thought process behind their lyrics all in an intimate setting. 

“My approach as a songwriter is to write songs that are not finite and will resonate with listeners for a really long time,” Kowalczyk said. “Sixteen years after our first album, Mental Jewelry, I am still able to get something out of songs LIVE recorded in the early 1990s — and I think that one of the reasons why we have had so many fans for so long is that our fans are also continuing to find nuances in our songs.”

Personally, I want to know the impetus behind “Lightning Crashes.”
