For Valentine's Day, 5-time Grammy winner Michael McDonald puts on a performance featuring his new album, Wide Open, as well as old favorites.
Through the years, Michael McDonald has been a member of Steely Dan, a Doobie Brother, a highly successful solo artist and songwriter, or most recently, reaching the Coachella generation as a celebrated co-star on Thundercat’s indie hit, “Show You The Way.” Now McDonald’s first new album in nine years, Wide Open, marks his set of all-original material since 2000. He penned or co-wrote 11 of the album’s 12 tracks. It’s a cogent reminder that he won Record and Song of the Year GRAMMYs® for co-writing as well as singing the Doobie Brothers hit “What a Fool Believes.” Wide Open marks a return to that classic’s emotional urgency alongside fiercer and fresher band arrangements than he’s ever created.
