CSN & Sometimes Y are not quite a band and not quite a super group. More accurately they are a collective of solo artists collaborating to make their individual songs better. Since 1969 they came together and split apart working solo, in duos and trios and sometimes as a quartet. Alongside their peers (Joni Mitchel, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, and others), they basically invented the singer songwriter genre that would go on to dominate the 1970’s and influence contemporary artists like Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and Brandi Carlisle. Louis and Mike discuss CSN&Y’s roots, how the group came together in the middle of the burgeoning LA Music scene, and of course their five favorite songs from all configurations of the group.
