Jackson Brown, Dar Williams, Marshall Crenshaw, Jonatha Brooke and other singer-songwriters will appear on “Songs of the Spectrum” — a new fundraising album of songs about autism.
The songs on the album, which will be released April 6, are collaborations between John O’Neil, a New York Times editor whose 2004 essay about his autistic son was part of a Pulitzer Prize-nominated series, and Jon Fried and Deena Shoshkes of the indie-pop band The Cucumbers.
