Jackson Browne is among the vanguard singer/songwriters of the rock & roll era. Over the course of three decades as a recording artist, he’s established himself as both a cerebral, introspective songwriter and a politically attuned voice of conscience.
His career has unfolded as a series of chapters reflecting personal evolution and changing priorities. In broad outline, he emerged as a soul-baring folksinger whose songs dealt with the riddles of romance and existence. During his middle period, he became a more outgoing and extroverted rocker.
Later work grew more topical in nature as Browne sang of political and social realities within and beyond our borders, all the while drawing on a varied musical palette.
