Stephen Stills has been writing, performing and recording for over 50 years, and has released over 250 songs. That his music from any of his fi ve decades in the business remains vital and relevant throughout the US and beyond proves Stills’ ability to reach people, to communicate intelligent ideas regarding social justice, love and other universal concepts that transcend time, technology, ethnicity and politics. Carry On, a four-disc career retrospective released this spring, displays the talent and the breadth of musical styles with which Stills has changed American music and culture.
