“Mr. Wainwright has proved to be far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters who...brought confessional poetry into popular song.... Mr. Wainwright wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation.”

Loudon Wainwright III

Loudon Wainwright’s songs are as hilarious as they are poignant. Since his 1969 debut, he has chronicled a life in progress, the subject matter evolving along with him from album to album, show to show, year to year. In his lyrics (and in a recent best-selling memoir) his source material is himself and the family history and fractured relationships that have informed him: the alcoholism, infidelities and competitiveness; the successes, joys and love. Wainwright sings about being a son, a parent, a husband, a brother, and a grandfather, and sometimes recites onstage, from memory, excerpts from his famous father’s Life Magazine columns. He has released dozens of albums, including the Grammy-nominated I'm Alright (1985) and the Grammy-winning High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project (2009), and has appeared with regularity in films (Elizabethtown, Knocked Up) and on television (Ally McBeal, Parks & Recreation). He is the ex-husband of late folk artist Kate McGarrigle and the father of musicians (and formidable singer/songwriters in their own right) Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, and Lucy Wainwright Roche.
