"Insurance Legend Cuts Second Album" is not a title most of us thought we would ever see, but here we are.
Jim Stanard, founder of Renaissance Re, and until recently chairman of TigerRisk Partners LLC, has released his second album, "Color Outside the Lines."
Mr. Stanard founded Renaissance Re in 1993 and partnered with Rod Fox in 2008 to form broker / advisor TigerRisk Partners.
An early habit of music gave way to a career in insurance but never completely left the 71-year-old former boss.
"I always felt that music was my unfinished business," he said. "I played a lot in the 60's and early '70s, but then I got busy with other things" ̵
The new album features two songs by Stanard's friend Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary Fame, and Mr. Yarrow's daughter, Bethany.
"I was amazed at how much the sound of Jim's voice combined with mine and Bethany's reminded me of Peter, Paul and Mary," Yarrow said of his collaboration with Stanard. "It made me proud to feel the legacy of the spirit lives on – especially because Jim's songs have a similar message." In Stanard. "My songs are about how I see people and the world." Catalog
