5 Albums I Can’t Live Without:

1

Sob Rock, John Mayer

It really set me straight. Also influenced a lot of my writing on our new album. Connected with John while listening, so that made it even more meaningful.

2

Gap Gold: Best of the Gap Band, The Gap Band

Just the nastiest, funkiest soulfulest prettiest sound.

3

Like a Prayer, Madonna

Was absolutely obsessed with her in 1990. And I did the math: She was dating Warren Beatty at the time and we had the same age gap—only I was younger. So, I really though we could have been something!

4

New Edition, New Edition

It means everything. Before I was a New Kid, I played this record over and over. My BFF at the time cried to “Lost in Love” at a sleepover once. These guys are such gracious legends. They paved the way, to put it lightly!

5

Come Away With Me, Norah Jones

This CD was on heavy rotation in my apartment in Tribeca. Saw her before this album blew up at Joe’s Pub in NYC. It’s a once-in-a-generation album from a once-in-a-generation artist.
