Recently, we came across the music of LA/Toronto-based singer-songwriter Louie Short. To say that we’re excited, would probably be the understatement of the year. His latest single What Can I Do has been on heavy rotation over the last few days, and shows no signs of slowing down.
“The song was written by Louie’s father Michael Short and an artist named BJ Cook in late 70s Toronto. It was recorded with the intent of selling it – possibly through BJ’s ex-husband David Foster (Ringo Starr, Mary J Blige) – but nothing came and the tape disappeared. 40 years later, in the process of clearing out the old studio, an engineer who had always liked the recording digitized and emailed it to the writers. His dad played it for him and Louie cut the record shortly thereafter. In Louie’s words, he says “a good song never dies!”
