I have known Barry Strutt for over thirty years and have always marveled at his enormous talent as a musician and songwriter, which is evident in his new composition, 'When the World Comes Back'.  The lyrics not only reflect the hollowness of the isolation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, they demonstrate Barry’s compassion for those who suffered both physically and mentally. It’s also important to note, in executing his vision for the song, Barry has enlisted a cast of amazing musicians and vocalists including Dakota MacLoed, Ray Naccari, Ada Rovatti, and six time Grammy winner Randy Brecker. And with Jaijai Jackson of The Jazz Network Worldwide and Not Just Jazz Network heading up promotion, 'When the World Comes Back' is certain to garner the recognition it deserves. ~ Charles Kipps

Kipps received numerous gold records and Broadcast Music awards while writing and producing songs for artists such as Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Melba Moore, and Temptations lead singer David Ruffin for whom he wrote the hit Walk Away From Love. He was a partner in McCoy/Kipps Productions with Van McCoy, whose recording of The Hustle topped the Billboard charts.  He is also a writer/producer who has won an Emmy, Peabody, Humanitas Prize, and Mystery Writers Edgar Award.
