Born into a musical family, Sheryl Crow studied art at university, before going on to teach it after graduation. Her evenings were spent performing with local bands and thanks to a chance meeting with producer Jay Oliver, she soon started recording advertising jingles. Deciding to concentrate on music full time, a move to Los Angeles followed in the mid-1980s and her big break came when she won a place as a back-up singer for Michael Jackson's 'Bad' world tour. After a couple years travelling with Jackson she performed alongside numerous other artists including Sting, Foreigner and Rod Stewart. With a growing book of industry contacts, Crow began work with record producer Hugh Padgham who soon had her signed to a label and recording in the studio. However, she didn't like the pop direction in which Padgham was pushing her and work ground to a halt. After a brief hiatus she was soon back on track and recording with a handful of notable industry figures who dubbed themselves The Tuesday Night Music Club. Crow's debut album went by the same name and spawned the massive hit 'All I Wanna Do', making her an instant success. Splitting from group, solo success and awards followed, and Crow was asked to write and perform the title theme for the James Bond film 'Tomorrow Never Dies' (1997). This led to more film soundtrack work including 'Kiss That Girl' for 'Bridget Jones's Diary' (2001) and 'Real Gone' for Disney Pixar's animation 'Cars' (2006). More records followed with '100 Miles from Memphis', 'Feels Like Home' and 'Be Myself' all achieving chart success and maintaining Crow's popularity. In 2017 she embarked on an Outlaws tour with Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Margo Price and Hayes Carll. In 2019 Crow performed at Glastonbury Festival and later released her eleventh studio album, 'Threads', which featured Chuck D, Mavis Staples and Eric Clapton.
