In a musical world filled with lyrics that degrade, shock, and diminish others, ‘I Was Born’ is an inspiring (and addicting) antidote.
If you are of a certain age, the musical group Hanson is likely one you know well. While some in the pop-rock world considered them just another “boy band” (Entertainment Weekly compared them, albeit affectionately, to “a slacker Partridge Family”), the long-haired, free-spirited Hanson brothers—Isaac, Taylor, and Zac—are talented and serious musicians.
Their first studio album, “Middle of Nowhere,” produced multiple hit songs, two Grammy nominations, and critical reviews. Taylor Hanson, the middle brother and keyboardist, went on to form the band Tinted Windows with James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins and Bun E.
