Bruce Hornsby: The Master of Levitation
"The paperboy is recounting to his friends all the rumors about this mysterious crazy person in the town that everyone's really fearful of," Hornsby said. "So that's really it, he's just spouting off all these rumors he's heard. Of course, it ends up that not all, if any, of them are true, but this is a song about the rumor mill running rampant."
Another one of Bruce Hornsby attributesother than his talent as a songwriter and performeris his omnivorous appetite for music. To the chagrin of some, there's no pigeonholing his music, because his multi-informed influences and inquisitive nature may find him playing folksy melodies, bluesy riverboat-like tunes, urban tempos, or sneaking classical music into newer material. With credits on recordings too numerous too count, on a who's who list from expansive backgrounds, touring with the Noisemakers, or his involvement in the Creative American Music Program at the Frost School of Music/University of Miami, a curriculum that is developing aspiring songwriters; he doesn't seem to be slowing down.
