Our Rachael Worby, former First Lady of West Virginia and 17-year Music Director and Conductor of the Wheeling Symphony, feels a special connection to Bill Withers:

"I am attracted to Bill Wither’s music because in his voice you can hear the timbre of the country roads of West Virginia. The fact that, like me, he moved west to Los Angeles and found a resonant musical home here, only deepens my connection to his sound."

Withers has said about his song "Lean On Me": 

"It's a rural song that translates across demographic lines. Who could argue with the fact that it would be nice to have somebody who really was that way? My experience was, there were people who were that way. They would help you out. Even in the rural South, there were people who would help you out even across racial was very likely and very practical to expect a 'Lean On Me' circumstance to exist. My experience was trying to adjust to a world where that circumstance was not the rule rather than the exception."
