Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee - with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted twice into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and with CSN, and is a Grammy winner.
His remarkable body of work began with The Hollies from 1964-68, his contribution to the band included Stop Stop Stop, Pay You Back With Interest, On A Carousel, Carrie Anne, King Midas In Reverse and Jennifer Eccles.
The original classic union of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) lasted only twenty months yet their songs are timeless lightning rods embedded in our DNA, many written by Nash - Marrakesh Express, Pre-Road Downs (written for then-girlfriend Joni Mitchell), Lady Of the Island, Teach Your Children and Our House.
Overlapping CSNY, Nash’s solo career debuted with Songs For Beginners (1971), whose Chicago/We Can Change the World and Military Madness highlighting the powerful social conscience that has been a hallmark of his work throughout his career right up to his latest record, 2016’s This Path Tonight.
Three early 70’s albums with David Crosby produced many more memorable songs including Southbound Train and Immigration Man before Nash wrote Just A Song Before I Go, a US top 10 hit from CSN’s 1977 reunion album and lightning struck once more on CSN’s Daylight Again (1982), on which Nash penned their final Top 10 hit, Wasted On The Way.
