For Crosby Loggins, what’s past is prologue. With ‘Time To Move,’ his debut Jive Records release, Loggins draws on a unique personal and musical history to forge a statement that places his intimate voice front and center.
After several years of leading the jazzier, funk-inflected Crosby Loggins and the Light, the songwriter opted for tighter editing and sharper focus on Time To Move. Its ten songs exude the warmth of mid-70s singer-songwriter LPs, retaining a comfortable, well-worn feel without seeming aggressively retro.
Growing up around musicians gave Loggins a sense of personal perspective while shaping his tastes. The son of chart-topping artist Kenny Loggins, Crosby enjoyed early exposure to his father’s peers and friends, including Jackson Browne and Michael McDonald, at the family home in Santa Barbara, CA. “There were no direct mentorships,” he says, “but I learned as much from their personalities as I did from their talents. I remember Michael McDonald being really grounded, and Jackson Browne had a soul-searching calm.”
