Description

Even a good 30 years after Bill Withers retired from the music business into private life, it is almost impossible to avoid his musical work. His music is still present in all media and we encounter it on the radio, on television, in commercials, on soundtracks or as samples in hip-hop songs. Hits such as Lovely Day, Use Me, Lean On Me and Ain't No Sunshine (which has over 350 cover versions), are testament to Withers' ability to turn disparate influences into unique and commercially successful soul classics.

The catchy combinations of R&B, folk, funk, soul and gospel accents, performed with a soft voice, captivated millions of listeners. They made the idiosyncratic soul singer and guitarist world famous and also brought him three Grammy awards and a place in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
