|SHERYL CROW - BIOGRAPHY||
Sheryl Crow spent many years paying her dues as a backup singer for Don Henley, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, and Michael Jackson. Signing with A&M in 1991, Sheryl jettisoned her self-titled debut, deeming it too slick. Its follow-up, 1994's multi-platinum Tuesday Night Music Club proved her right. Growing out of a series of informal jam sessions with L.A. studio veterans, the relaxed yet gritty blues-rock of Tuesday Night Music Club became a hit in the Spring of 1994, thanks to the single "Leaving Las Vegas", a slightly surreal travelogue which only shows the beginning of her talent. Later that summer, the laidback "All I Want to Do" was released and it became an across-the-boards success, pushing Tuesday Night Music Club into the Top Ten and into multi-platinum status, establishing her as a force to be reckoned with.
Her 1996 self-titled follow-up was also hugely successful, with jewels like "If It Makes You Happy," "Home" and "Redemption Day" showing Crow growing as a songwriter and performer. Sheryl Crow was followed two years later by The Globe Sessions. From "My Favorite Mistake," to the harrowing, atmospheric finale, "Crash & Burn", The Globe Sessions is Sheryl Crow's deepest, richest music. Horns and strings embellishing tough guitar, drum loops, elegant keyboards and novel percussion, its arrangements serve songs that aim right for the heart. Confessional in impulse, universal in appeal, those songs find Crow communicating with fierce honesty, sharing her soul with rare courage and vulnerability.
