CURVE BALL

We’re still grinning from S-Curve’s invitation-only 20th Anniversary Celebration on Zoom, which was attended by some 300 guests. Among them were Eddie Levert and Walter Williams of The O’Jays (celebrating their 62nd anniversary as a group), Ian Axel of A Great Big World, Danny Goldberg, David Simone, Steve Leeds, Billy Mann, Jimmy Webb, music supervisor extraordinaire Michael Hill, Jack Sussman, BMG EVP John Loeffler, Kid Kelly, Jayn from KLLC and, of course, the full roster of S-Curve Records and Hollywood Records staffers.

Performances from Andy Grammar, AJRBaha Men, Joss Stone, Taylor Hanson, We The Kings and Leslie Odom Jr. paid homage to S-Curve honcho Steve Greenberg. Surprise (to us, anyway) appearances by Tom Jones and Duran Duran’s John Taylor occasioned swoons.

The event also featured emotional tributes to soul legend Betty Wright and multiple Emmy and Grammy winner Adam Schlesinger, two artists closely associated with S-Curve who passed away this year.

Here’s to the next 20 years. Alas, we remain mystified as to who let the dogs out.
