Tom Waits

Tom Waits' career began in the early 70's, with his first release "Closin' Time", which he wrote most of its material while stillserving in the AirForce.

"During the 70's, Waits combined a lyrical focus on desperate, lowlife characters with a persona that seemed to embody thesame lifestyle,which he sang about in a raspy, gravelly voice" - All Musi.

Tom Waits' career began in the early 70's, with his first release "Closin' Time", which he wrote most of its material while stillserving in the AirForce.

"During the 70's, Waits combined a lyrical focus on desperate, lowlife characters with a persona that seemed to embody thesame lifestyle,which he sang about in a raspy, gravelly voice" - All Musi.

As Tom's career progressed into the 80's, he took a more experimental approach to his music, evidently shown in highlightalbums such as"Swordfishtrombones" and "Rain Dogs". From there, Waits continued much the same into the 90's, though hismusic became even moreunclassified and experimental. The 1992 album "Bone Machine" is a morbid, sinister nightmare, whichhas Waits experiment with verydark/depressive music and lyrics.

Waits took a 6 year rest from his 1993 album "The Black Rider", before he finally released the late 1999 album "MuleVariations", which was ahuge return for him. The album was a hell of a record from start to finish. So far in the new millenium,Tom Waits has released 4 albums, in addition to athree disc compilation album entitled "Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers &Bastards". His most recent LP, Bad As Me, was released in 2011. « hide
