"Kenny Loggins" (born "Kenneth Clark Loggins" on January 7, 1948) is an American singer and songwriter.
Loggins was born in Everett, Washington. The early 70s found him in the band "Gator Creek" with Mike Deasy. An early version of "Danny's Song" (later recorded by Loggins and Messina) was included on this effort on Mercury Records. Two covers are featured as well, Jackson Browne's "These Days" and "Don't Try to Lay no Boogie Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll" which was made famous by Long John Baldry.
Loggins continued his career in the 1970s, and after catching the attention of fellow singer-songwriter Jim Messina, the two began a duo career under Loggins and Messina that would last until 1976. In 1977, Loggins went on to produce his first solo album, ''Celebrate Me Home'', which included the hit "I Believe In Love". ''Nightwatch'', a popular album released in 1978, included the hit "Whenever I Call You Friend", a duet with rock n' roll queen and Fleetwood Mac member, Stevie Nicks. He followed this in 1979 with ''Keep The Fire'', which included hits "This Is It" and the title track.
