Sheryl Crow is probably most famous for the single "All I
Wanna Do", from her 1993 debut album Tuesday Night Music
Club. However this song was never intended as a single. It was
released as a last-ditch attempt to raise the sales, and it
certainly worked. The album was nominated for five Grammys and
won Record Of The Year. Tuesday Night is a great album because it
combines many different styles of music from jazz to rock and
roll to blues, and even a sing-songy chant, the "Na-Na
song". And of course there is Sheryl Crow's wonderfull
songwriting, a talent which has earned her credit through writing
songs for other people, including Eric Clapton and Wynona Judd.
In the past she has worked as a studio musician for Bob Dylan,
Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, Don Henley, John Hiatt,
Joe Cocker and Sinead O'Connor. She also toured with Micheal
Jackson as a backing vocalist, and opened for the Eagles.
Her 1996, self-titled, self-produced album has already become a huge success. It offers short-story type lyrics with detailed characters and socially conscious commentary. Sheryl Crow will always be one of my favorite songwriters.
Sheryl's new album, "The Globe Sessions" hit the stores last September.
