For nearly 30 years, Graham Parker has been slinging his signature sound, earning a spot in the pantheon of influential rock ‘n’ roll figures. Since his early days with The Rumour, Parker has coupled punk’s energy with his deeply rooted love of American R&B, country, and soul music. With a snotty barroom brawler’s rasp, a soul man’s swagger, and an indelible ear for hooks and songcraft, you will find that Parker is still at the absolute top of his game.
Graham Parker emerged from England’s vibrant mid-70s pub rock music scene, and was promptly tagged the quintessential angry young man. His musical style informed the likes of Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson, as well as earning raves from rock critics worldwide. His recordings with The Rumour are legendary, earning two spots in Rolling Stone’s “Top 100 Albums of All Time.”
