On Grace Notes, we often take a little time to talk about the lyrics of the songs chosen by our guests. On this episode, we’re diving deep into the world of lyricist and musician, Stan Gelber. Gelber penned songs made famous by the likes of Tom Jones, Tommy Roe, and even Elvis Presley. What motivated him to write the words sung by so many throughout the world? Although music was always a passion of Stan’s, he’s had many different career paths on his way to fulfilling his dream – from an army reservist, to a member of the New York Bar, and even a public school teacher – each experience helped to make Stan the man he is today.
