Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and producer Elvis Costello has had a phenomenal career. After emerging in the ‘70s, he did his rounds in London’s pub rock scene and eventually breakthrough the international market. His incredible body of work includes several platinum and gold-selling records, which spawned numerous hits, such as “I Can’t Stand Up for Falling Down,” “Oliver’s Army,” “Watching the Detectives,” “Good Year for the Roses,” and the list goes on.
In 1977, Costello made a breakthrough in the U.K. and a few other territories with the hit single “Watching the Detectives.” The song was spawned from his chart-performing debut album, My Aim is True, which later earned platinum in the U.S. After a stellar debut, Costello followed up with the critically-acclaimed sophomore effort, This Year’s Model. The album debuted at number 4 on the U.K. chart and entered the U.S. Billboard’s 200 Top 30. Although the album’s performance was moderately good, it’s considered one of Costello’s career-defining records. This Year’s Model entered several “best of” lists by top-tier music publications, such as NME, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and more. Some critics described the record as the “best album ever made.”
From 1978 to 1996, Costello recorded and toured with the Attractions. His time with the band has produced eleven studio albums, including groundbreaking albums, Get Happy! and Punch the Clock. Apart from the Attractions, Costello also worked on a number of collaborations with the Brodsky Quartet, Richard Harvey, Confederates, Burt Bacharach, and more.
In 2004, Costello began working with the Imposters and released his first album with the band, titled Delivery Man. He worked and released four more albums with the band, including his latest effort, The Boy Named If, released in January of last year. The highly acclaimed record spawned the lead single, “The Magnificent Hurt,” and entered the charts in eight countries, including the U.S. and U.K.
Elvis Costello has recently wrapped up a ten-date residency in New York. The shows featured 100 songs from Costello’s 32-album repertoire. The series of shows have been described as groundbreaking and among the greatest rock concerts of the year.
If you want to hear some excellent live music this summer, you are better off experiencing a show performed by the best in the business. Costello is revered as one of the world’s greatest songwriters of all time. His five-decade career has resulted in a Grammy Award, two Brit Award nominations, and an Academy Award nomination. Costello’s groundbreaking work has also earned him a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after he was inducted by Elton John in 2003. During the induction speech, John described Costello’s songs as “having no musical boundaries.”
