GRAMMY-winning musician, vocalist, songwriter and producer Jorge Calderón will release two new singles on Inside Recordings Tuesday, October 30th. "I Will Wait For You" and "Thorn In Your Side" will be released digitally via Inside Recordings - an independent label founded by Jackson Browne and his management.
"'I Will Wait For You,' is a song I wrote after meeting a young woman on leave from Iraq who was about to go back in a few days," says Calderón. "I couldn't stop thinking about how I would feel if I had a loved one or a family member in that situation." The song features Jennifer Warnes on vocal, Van Dyke Parks on accordion and Reggie Hamilton on upright bass.
After witnessing "the struggles of today's working people," Calderón wrote, "Thorn in Your Side," which talks about the economic inequality in our country and many countries in the world today.
Calderón, originally from San Juan Puerto Rico is a world-renowned musician and multi-instrumentalist who has toured with David Lindley & El Rayo X, Leonard Cohen, Ry Cooder and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

He also produced Zevon's final album The Wind as well as the Warren Zevon tribute album Enjoy Every Sandwich: Songs of Warren Zevon.
