Music News- Just over 45 years ago, multi-platinum singer-songwriter JACK TEMPCHIN sat at a table at a Wiernerschnitzel hot dog stand in San Diego, CA and finished composing one of the most iconic rock ballads ever, “Peaceful Easy Feeling.” GLENN FREY, Tempchin’s good friend and writing partner, took the song back to his ‘new’ band, just eight days old –called the EAGLES – who recorded and released it on December 1st, 1972, as the third single from their eponymous debut LP.
In celebration of his dear friend, Glenn Frey, and the song that forever connects them both, Tempchin continues his 'Peaceful Easy Feeling 45th Anniversary Tour' celebration with stops at Southern California landmark venues MCCABE'S and THE PALOMINO. Beginning on November 2nd in San Francisco, the singer-songwriter will make eight stops during his West Coat Tour with troubadour KEITH HARKIN on Harkin’s ‘Keep On Rolling Tour’.
Jack Tempchin's multi-platinum hits are iconic touchstones of 'The Southern California Sound'. His best known compositions are “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and co-write "Already Gone", two songs on the *RIAA’s recently re-certified *Best-Selling U.S. Album Of The 20th Century*, 'Eagles Their Greatest Hits: 1971-1975'. Tempchin also co-composed three additional Eagles hits, “The Girl From Yesterday”, “Somebody”, and “It’s Your World Now”.
With a dozen Top 40 hits in the 1980s Tempchin/Frey co-writes include: "Part Of Me, Part Of You" from Oscar-winning film 'Thelma & Louise', “You Belong To The City” and “Smuggler’s Blues” from the Miami Vice TV soundtrack, plus “Sexy Girl”, “True Love”, “Soul Searchin’”, “The One You Love,” and “I Found Somebody”. Tempchin tunes have also been recorded by music legends George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Glen Campbell, Tanya Tucker, Trisha Yearwood, Sammy Kershaw, Richie Havens, Kate Wolf, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Randy Meisner, The Paladins and others. Johnny Rivers’ Top 10 hit “Slow Dancing (Swayin; to the Music)”, was also solely composed by Jack Tempchin.
In 2017, JACK TEMPCHIN released his greatest hits on one album, 'Peaceful Easy Feeling – The Songs of Jack Tempchin' on Blue Elan Records. Jack takes to the mic as both solo and duet with guest vocalists like Rita Coolidge, Janiva Magness, Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen. Finally, there is one very special track on this album, “Privacy,” a previously unreleased piece written with his musical brother, Glenn Frey.
