Grammy Award-winning Elvis Costello’s record catalogue of more than 30 albums includes the contrasting pop and rock & roll albums along with an album of country covers, and two collections of orchestrally accompanied piano ballads. 2017 marked the 40th anniversary of the release of his first record album, My Aim Is True.
He has performed worldwide with his bands, The Attractions, His Confederates (which featured two members of Elvis Presley’s “T.C.B” band), and his current group, The Imposters—Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas, and Davey Faragher—as well as solo concerts, most recently his acclaimed solo show, “Detour”. In 2003, Costello acted as lyrical editor of six songs written with his wife, the jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall for her album The Girl In The Other Room.
Elvis Costello and The Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. In 2004 Costello was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song – “The Scarlet Tide,” co-written with T Bone Burnett and sung by Alison Krauss in the motion picture Cold Mountain. In 2016 Elvis Costello was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in the company of Chip Taylor and Tom Petty. Costello has entered into songwriting collaborations with Paul McCartney, Burt Bacharach, the Brodsky Quartet and with Allen Toussaint for the album The River In Reverse, the first major label recording project to visit New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and completed there while the city was still under curfew.
