Graham Parker


Stereotyped early in his career as the quintessential angry young man, Graham Parker was one of the most successful singer/songwriters to emerge from England's pub rock scene of the early '70s. Drawing heavily from Van Morrison and the Rolling Stones, Parker developed a sinewy fusion of driving rock & roll and confessional folk-rock, highlighted by his indignant passion, biting sarcasm, and bristling anger. At the outset of his career, his albums crackled with pub rock energy, snide witticisms, and gentle insights, earning him a devoted following of fans and critics, who lavished praise on his debut, Howlin' Wind. – allmusic.com

Parker began an extraordinarily active period in 2001, with the UK rerelease of his early Rumour work, and with his third studio album for Razor & Tie, Deepcut to Nowhere, a penetrating collection of new songs that seemed intended to reflect comprehensively on the singer's life and aims. It also marked a reunion of sorts, as Parker recorded with ex-Rumour drummer Steve Goulding for the first time in 20 years.

…In March of 2007, a new full-length, Don't Tell Columbus was released marking Parker's fourth album in three years. Don't Tell Columbus - though unfair to call a return to form - finds Graham Parker with some of his best songs in years, including the autobiographical I Discovered America, where Parker proclaims about his lack of commercial success "everyone said quit, that's when I found hope." – Wikipedia.com
