Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians - What I Am (Geffen GEF49 - 1988)

Written by Dallas-born Edie Brickell and Kenny Withrow, What I Am was the single taken from Edie's debut album with the New Bohemians, SHOOTING RUBBERBANDS AT THE STARS. The song has been featured in both film and on TV. Best known perhaps for being married Paul Simon, Edie has enjoyed a fruitful career as a solo artist, with Steve Gadd in the Gaddabouts, as an actress, appearing as a folk singer in the Oliver Stone film Born on the Fourth of July singing Dylan's A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall and for touring with Steve Martin. The song has been sampled a few times and was also covered by Spice Girl Emma Bunton with the English electronic music duo Tin Tin Out.
