Legendary singer and songwriter Jackson Browne uses music as an avenue for him to speak his mind on issues and events that are important to him. His ability to write lyrics and music that are personal to him while selling millions of albums and connecting to fans around the globe separates Browne from many of the artists of his generation. Throughout his long and storied career, Browne has toured relentlessly.
Browne was born on a German army base in 1948, but he grew up and spent most of his life in Southern California. In 1967, he found his way to New York to try making a mark on the folk music scene. For the next few years he would write and record songs that many would see as well beyond his years. His early recordings led to a record deal with Asylum Records where at the youthful age of 23, Browne released his debut album Jackson Browne (Saturate Before Using) (1972). The album included the singles "Rock Me on the Water" and "Doctor My Eyes," which reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Browne followed up his debut effort with albums including For Everyman (1973), Late for the Sky (1974), The Pretender(1976) and Running On Empty (1977).
It wasn't until Hold Out (1980) that a Jackson Browne album reached #1 on the Billboard pop charts. The album included two singles that charted on the Billboard charts, with "Boulevard" making it to #19 and "That Girl Could Sing" peaking at #22. The biggest mainstream hit from Browne was released in 1982, as "Somebody's Baby" reached #7 on Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on the Mainstream Rock chart. Other albums that have been released over his career include Lawyers in Love (1983), World in Motion (1989), I'm Alive (1993) The Naked Ride Home (2002), Time the Conquerer (2008) and Standing In The Breach (2014).
