Info for World In Motion

Throughout the ‘80s, Jackson Browne’s political conscience began dominating his songwriting. With 1989’s World in Motion, it hit its peak. The title track condemns the ever-widening gap between rich and poor and the way that advertising creates want and need. Browne matches his lyrics with a nightclub blues lick and arrangement heavy on the ‘80s synths. “How Long” is another swampy blues; it asks how society will take care of humanity while defense spending skyrockets beyond anyone’s dreams. “When the Stone Begins to Turn” adds reggae to a song for freedom, while Little Steven’s “I Am a Patriot” stands as the album’s finest anthem. Yet Browne hasn’t lost his knack for compassionate love songs. “Enough of the Night” offers hope to those seduced by the barroom lights, while “Chasing You into the Light” proves his heart still yearns and reaches for what he can barely grasp.

'Browne's call to action on World in Motion is also the toughest kind to deny. Even more explicitly issue driven than its politically charged predecessor Lives In The Balance, World in Motion is an album of universal truths bound together by a highly personal focus. Browne's stance is also free of gratuitous pop-star rage, rooted instead in calm, unassailable reason. The beauty of a song like 'Anything Can Happen' - which contends that if love can thrive in a climate of violence and dread, so can the promise of change - is that its calm adamancy is actually heightened by its tender elegance. There are a million ways for music to say that people deserve better - better government, better life, better love. On World in Motion, Browne gets your attention by getting under your skin.'

Jackson Browne
has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. He was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, and the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2007.

Jackson's career began in the mid-60s in Los Angeles and Orange County folk clubs. Except for a brief period in NYC in the late 1960s, he has always lived in Southern California. His debut album came out on David Geffen's Asylum Records in 1972. Since then, he has released thirteen studio albums and three collections of live performances; his most recent, Love Is Strange, features David Lindley.

Beyond his music, Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education. He's a co-founder of the groups Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE), Nukefree.org, and the Success Through the Arts Foundation, which provides education opportunities for students in South Los Angeles.

In 2002, he was the fourth recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, given to artists whose works exemplify the environmental and social values that were essential to the great California-born author. He has received Duke University’s LEAF award for Lifetime Environmental Achievement in the Fine Arts, and both the Chapin-World Hunger Year and NARM Harry Chapin Humanitarian Awards. In 2004, Jackson was given an honorary Doctorate of Music by Occidental College in Los Angeles, for "a remarkable musical career that has successfully combined an intensely personal artistry with a broader vision of social justice."
