Sheryl Crow

Born into a musical family, Sheryl Crow (11 February 1962) studied art at university before going on to teach it after graduating. Her evenings were spent performing with local bands and thanks to a chance meeting with producer Jay Oliver, she was hired to record advertising jingles. After 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 of years travelling with Michael Jackson, she went on to perform alongside numerous other artists including Sting, Foreigner, and Rod Stewart. With a growing book of industry contacts, she began working 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 he was pushing her and the 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. Sheryl Crow's 1993 debut album went by the same name and spawned the massive hit "All I Wanna Do," making her an instant success. After splitting from the group, solo success and awards followed, and Sheryl 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 (2010), Feels Like Home (2013) and Be Myself (2017) all achieving chart success and maintaining Sheryl Crow's popularity. In 2017 she embarked on an Outlaws tour with Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Margo Price, and Hayes Carll. In 2019, she performed at Glastonbury Festival and later released her eleventh studio album, Threads, which featured Chuck D, Mavis Staples, and Eric Clapton. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in November 2023 and issued her twelfth studio album the following year. Evolution came out in March 2024 via Big Machine and was produced by Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Gary Clark Jr). The LP's title track explores the theme of artificial intelligence and features a guitar solo from Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine fame.
