You Should Be So Lucky is a dynamic and distinguished album of songs written almost entirely by Tench over the course of his thirty-seven year career not only as keyboardist and founding member of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, but as a first call musician for artists from Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan to The Rolling Stones and Elvis Costello; from the Jayhawks and Ryan Adams to Fiona Apple and John Prine. The only non-originals are covers of the traditional “Corrina, Corrina” and the Bob Dylan track “Duquesne Whistle” from 2012’s Tempest.
