Songs From The Fog: 18 Songs Inspired By The Bay Area

What makes San Francisco a mecca for musicians and songwriters? It’s hard to say. Maybe it’s the desire to follow in the footsteps of Jack Keroac and Neal Cassady. But since the beginning of the modern musical era, songwriters as diverse as Jerry Garcia, Sly Stone, The Jefferson Airplane, Green Day, John Fogerty have called the Bay Area “home.”

The Golden Gate still inspires songs from the hearts and minds of its talented inhabitants.

May we present this outstanding array of tracks, fresh from the recording studio….
