Kidz Rock! Inc. would like to wish a very happy birthday to Elvis Costello (1954-), an English singer-songwriter.
He came to prominence as an early participant in London’s pub rock scene in the early-1970s and later became associated with the original wave of the British Punk/New Wave movement of the mid to late-1970s. Steeped in word play, the vocabulary of Costello’s lyrics is broader than that of most popular songs. His music has drawn on many diverse genres; one critic described him as a “pop encyclopaedia”, able to “reinvent the past in his own image”.
Costello has won multiple awards in his career, including a Grammy Award, and has twice been nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male. In 2003, Elvis Costello & the Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Costello number 80 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
