Our guest last week on Art of the Song is Dan Navarro. Dan started his career as a songwriter, most often with Eric Lowen, for artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the Grammy-nominated “We Belong”), The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Keb’ Mo’, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick and many more. In the 1990s, Dan recorded and toured with Eric Lowen in the acclaimed acoustic duo Lowen & Navarro until Eric’s retirement in 2009. Dan has since transitioned into a growing solo career, increasingly in demand on the national concert circuit. We spoke with Dan Navarro in front of an audience at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, Oklahoma. Viv Nesbitt was unable to be at WoodyFest this year, so our Chief Community Builder, Katie Mitchell sat in for the interview.
