If you were looking for one person to serve as an expert on all things popular music, you would have to look hard to find someone more qualified than Peter Asher.
His career started as one half of the British Invastion duo ‘Peter and Gordon’ with 9 top 20 hits in just 4 years. Later, working for The Beatles Apple Records, he signed then produced a young folk singer named James Taylor.
In the decades that followed, he produced Linda Ronsdadt, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Elton John and more than a dozen other Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. He’s a singer-songwriter, musician arranger, engineer, producer and manager. There is virtually nothing in the music business he has not mastered.
On Wednesday, Peter will be on Capital Hill in Washington as part of a delegation meeting with members of Congress about ways to keep the music business alive and thriving for the artists as well as music companies.
