FEATURED ARTIST: Elvis Costello
The musical genius Declan MacManus aka Elvis Costello emerged fully sardonic in 1977 out of London, England. In his early career he was considered a new wave artist but that genre is too confining for Costello. After all, he dabbled in country, folk, and jazz, even experimenting with classical music at a point. All this makes him a true pop artist, creating popular music in various musical forms. He has also collaborated with some of the most affluent musicians of our time such as, Paul McCartney, Lucinda Williams, Allen Toussaint, Brian Eno, Burt Bacharach and Emmylou Harris. Elvis Costello released over two dozen studio albums in his stellar career.
