Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Tal Bachman
Song:She's So High
Of course Tal Bachman is the son of Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive guitarist and Canadian music legend Randy Bachman. Tal had a big hit in 1999 with She's So High and then "Wha' Happen?" He was born Aug. 13, 1968 in Winnipeg and grew up in Vancouver. Of course he grew up in a musical household and taught himself to play guitar. He lost interest in music as a teen and studied political philosophy in Utah. He returned to Vancouver and started writing music and sending out demos. One of those demos got the attention of executives at EMI Music Publishing and this got him a deal at Columbia Records. She's So High was a #1 hit in Canada and a top ten hit in the US. The album did very well on the Adult Oriented charts. It's a pretty good mainstream pop record. It was produced by Bob Rock. He's produced Metallica & Motley Crue among others and started out with the Canadian pop group The Payolas. I would guess he's pals with Tal's dad. Tal Bachman's 2004 CD Staring Down The Sun did OK in Canada. It was released on Artemis Records in the US in 2006. Tal renounced his Mormon faith a few years ago and appeared on the PBS Frontline documentary called Mormons. He's been touring with his dad lately. His website is currently under construction so I expect we may get some new music from this talented musician. Here's the video for She's So High by Tal Bachman.
