Close to Home is Beverley Craven's fourth studio album, her first in ten years. Craven abandoned her music career in 2000, a mixture of writer's block and the need to take care of her three young daughters. In 2004 she made a slow comeback, doing a handful of live appearances, but was shortly after diagnosed with breast cancer. After receiving treatment and given the all-clear, Craven decided to resume her music career.
Walsh spoke to Rolling Stone about the new LP, getting sober and what’s in store for the Eagles and the James Gang. Why did it take you 20 years to record a follow-up to your last solo album? I just never got any momentum going to finish any solo project. None of us really have. The album is called Analog Man. Did you record it on analog equipment? It was cut digitally.
Title: Close to Home (TV Movie 2001). A look at the inspiration behind Thomas Kinkade's painting The Christmas Cottage, and how the artist was motivated to begin his career after discovering his mother was in danger of losing their family home. Director: Michael Campus.
