In An Empty Room


"Everybody Dance" 12" single cover

The first song I ever wrote for CHIC was called "Everybody Dance." It cost 10 dollars to record. It was that song that would change my entire life.

A few months after that song was recorded, my partner Bernard Edwards and I would solidify our concept of The CHIC Organization. The success of my first song would put me on a path where the rest of my life I'd interact with glamorous superstars and mega-projects.

There's something ironically wonderful about playing this life changing song wearing street clothes In An Empty Room.
