#tbt Getting to meet Clive Davis (@clivejdavis) at #sbsw 2013. I think he was surprised that I had already read up to the chapter about Whitney Houston since most people were purchasing the book minutes before him signing it. Earlier that year, I had read through a biography about David Geffen (@davidgeffen) and learning about the similarities and differences of these two great men who had such an impact on popular music for several decades was absolutely invaluable in my development as a musician, performer and certainly had an impact on my philosophy as a producer and label owner. I would say Davis, Geffen, and Sean Combs (@diddy) all continue to be a major source of inspiration when I consider the possibilities of life in the music business. 2013 was also the year I offcially started my solo career after the devastating break up of my first professional band Groundscore. That year was filled with doubt, anxiety and fear. Having a resource like Clive, Geffen, Diddy and others to look up to absolutely made all of the difference. I encourage everyone to read Clive Davis' book even if you are not directly involved in the music industry. Amazing book, by an amazing man! Thank you Clive!! #rocknroll

In the last week, the soon-to-be iconic Academy Museum's sphere, which will hold the David Geffen Theater, finally removed its shoring to reveal the incredible architecture at Wilshire and Fairfax. We're so proud to have this amazing, city-defining client in our roster, and cannot wait for the opening night!

Some nice photos by @davidgeffen (yes the man himself 😉) of his yacht Rising Sun. David Geffen is an American record executive, film producer, theatrical producer and philanthropist. David Geffen is known for creating Asylum Records in 1970 and Geffen Records in 1980. Geffen Records launched the careers of the Eagles, Aerosmith and @gunsnroses . Geffen is also one of the founders of @dreamworksanimation Animation. His yacht Rising Sun was originally built for Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle Corporation. Ellison considered her too big, and purchased the ‘smaller’ 88 meter Mushashi. #followme @superyachtfan #superyacht #lurssenyachts #risingsun #nightphotography #yachtowner #yacht #yachting #billionairetoys #summer2018 #davidgeffen

Did you know David Geffen started his career in the mailroom at William Morris Talent Agency before working his way to being one of the founders of Dreamworks? Many of Hawthorne Lane's positions could be the gateway into the industry of your dreams! #getyourstart #workyourwayup #earnyourstripes #DavidGeffen

Musician of the Day: LAURA NYRO is the subject of so much admiration I simply couldn’t find one song to showcase. Laura Who you say? Well that’s pretty much what most folks say, yet she has been an enormous inspiration to some of the greatest artists of the modern era including: Jackson Browne, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Bette Midler, Tori Amos, Rickie Lee Jones, Cyndi Lauper, Alice Cooper, Todd Rundgren, Steely Dan, Paul Shaffer, Melissa Manchester and Elvis Costello. Elton John said he, “idolized her…. The soul, the passion, just the out and out audacity of the way her rhythmic and melody changes came was like nothing I’ve heard before.” Her biggest hits were recorded by a myriad of well known artists such as Barbra Streisand, The 5th Dimension, Peter Paul and Mary, Blood Sweat & Tears just to name a few. She was also Managed by David Geffen before he started Asylum Records and was one of his first successes. If you don’t know her work, Laura Nyro would be a great research project. I’ve always thought of her music as stream of consciousness compositions. She switches up her rhythms (not just her tempi) without a moment’s notice and likewise her melodic lines within a single composition are quixotic and viscerally delivered. I finally selected, “Timer” as a featured song. God and love, the Devil, the nature of reality and the meaning of life are all themes which constantly appear and are beautifully explored in her music. I think that is why she transcends genres and appeals to every songsmith on some level. As a bonus, there’s a link to Alison Krauss singing, “And When I Die” on Billy Childs album, “Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro.” This recording gave me so many goosebumps I almost had to leave the room… but then nothing could drag me away from Alison Krauss singing Laura Nyro. I feel like I’m the one who’s died and gone to heaven!
