from NADIA’S THEME (The Young and The Restless)
Written by Barry De Vorzon
A few weeks ago, we wrote about Skylark’s 1972 hit, “Wildflower.” One of the first people to listen and fall in love with the demo of Skylark’s “Wildflower” was Barry De Vorzon. He was a high-profile personality at the time in the Los Angeles music business. De Vorzon pushed David Foster and other Skylark members to move to California as De Vorzon worked his contacts to try and get Skylark a recording contract. Many years later, Foster wrote in his autobiography, “Hitman: Forty Years Making Music, Topping The Charts, and Winning Grammys,” to acknowledge De Vorzon’s role in helping Foster’s life take a fundamental turn on its way to success.
