Elvis Costello

Origin: United Kingdom

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genre: Rock

If there is one constant in Elvis Costello’s career—which now stretches over close to 40 years and includes almost as many albums—it is his insatiable musical curiosity, the driving force behind a songbook that has resisted prevailing winds and trends to flourish on 2 continents and with innumerable collaborators. With a raft of awards including a Grammy for the song I Still Have That Other Girl (1999), inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003, he was ranked among the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine in 2004 and presented with the Montreal Jazz Festival Spirit Award in 2014.
