Jeffrey Scott “Jeff” Buckley was an American singer songwriter and guitarist born in 1966. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan’s East Village gradually focusing more on his own material. After dismissing much interest from record labels he signed with Columbia, recruited a band and recorded what would be his only studio album, Grace, in 1994. Rolling Stone considers him one of the greatest singers of all time. Over the following two years, the band toured widely to promote the album, including concerts in the US, Europe, Japan and Australia. In 1996, they stopped touring and in 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue. Since his death in 1997, there have been many posthumous releases of his material, including a collection of four track demos and studio recordings for his unfinished second album My Sweetheart the Drunk, expansions of Grace and the Live at Sin-é EP. Chart success also came posthumously with his cover of Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah” with which he attained his first No 1 on Billboard’s Hot Digital Songs in March 2008 and reached No 2 in the UK Singles Chart that December.
