Julie Gold - "From A Distance"
Julie was a secretary at HBO when she thawed out her childhood piano (literally) and wrote the hit that changed her life.
Collaborating with T Bone Burnett, Leslie Phillips changed her name and left her Christian label behind. Robert Plant, who recorded one of her songs on Raising Sand, is a fan.
The "Midnight At The Oasis" singer is an Old Time gal.
Dick Wagner (Alice Cooper/Lou Reed)
The co-writer/guitarist on many Alice Cooper hits, Dick was also Lou Reed's axeman on the Rock n' Roll Animal album.
