An Evening With Eagles Songwriter Jack Tempchin


Saturday, February 15, 2020

2019 Songwriter Hall Of Fame Inductee Jack Tempchin is a legendary California hit songwriter whose best known compositions, "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Already Gone” are both on 'EAGLES Their Greatest Hits: 1971-1975', awarded *Best-Selling U.S. Album of the 20th Century* by the RIAA. Tempchin has five Eagles contributions total, including co-writes “The Girl From Yesterday" from the Eagles 'Hell Freezes Over' 1994 release, plus co-writes “It's Your World Now" and "Somebody", from Eagles 2007 'Long Road Out Of Eden’ release.

In 1976, Jack Tempchin was first signed by Clive Davis to Arista Records along with Jules Shear and Richard Stekol in a band known as The Funky Kings. Classic-rocker Johnny Rivers heard the Funky Kings' Jack Tempchin track, "Slow Dancing (Swayin’ To the Music)" recorded the song, and made it a Billboard Top 10 hit in 1977. Later that same year, country crooner Johnny Duncan took it Top 10 on the Country charts.

In 1980, the Eagles took a 14 year vacation. Tempchin then occupied the vacant writer’s seat next to Glenn Frey. Together, they co-wrote a dozen radio hits for Glenn Frey's solo career including, "True Love", "The One You Love", "Party Town", "Sexy Girl”, "I Found Somebody", "Soul Searchin", "Livin' Right”, “Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed” and “Part Of You, Part Of Me”... the official soundtrack song for Oscar-winning movie ‘Thelma & Louise’. Tempchin and Frey also co-composed "Smuggler's Blues" & "You Belong to The City" specifically for the original 'Miami Vice' TV show soundtrack, which reached Number 1 on the Billboard 200 in both 1985 and 1986.

Jack Tempchin songs have been performed live or recorded by many artists of note, including: George Jones, Tom Waits, Brandi Carlile, Bonnie Raitt, Buck Owens, Emmylou Harris, John Fogerty, Glen Campbell, Chris Hillman, Jackson Browne, Dwight Yoakam, Linda Ronstadt, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, Tanya Tucker, Jim Lauderdale, Johnny Duncan, Richie Havens, Taj Mahal, Randy Meisner, Sammy Kershaw, Kate Wolf, Tom Rush, Little Texas, The Paladins, New Riders Of the Purple Sage, Olivia Newton-John, Wilson-Philips, Brett Dennen, Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20) and Jim James (My Morning Jacket), among other greats.
