Hailing from Los Angeles, Beck was born Beck David Campbell.
Raised in a Scientologist family, his mother was a former Warholian actress and his father was a string arranger and a conductor.
Beck eventually dropped out of school and started gigging at area clubs and coffeehouses.
In 1989, Beck hopped a bus
to the Big Apple, with just his guitar and eight bucks. He roamed around the city in search of a job and a place to call home
with little success. He eventually hung out on Manhattan's Lower East Side and happened upon the tail end of the anti-folk
scene's initial wave. Beck linked to acoustic musicians like Lach, Paleface, Kirk Kelly, Roger Manning and Cindy Lee Berryhill.
Beck recalled, "The whole mission was to destroy all the cliches and make up some new ones. Everybody knew each other. You
could go up onstage and say anything, and you wouldn't feel weird or feel any pressure." With another New York winter on its
way, Beck couldn't bare the thought of facing it homeless. So he returned to L.A. in 1991. He got a job at a video store and
gigged at Silver Lake clubs and coffeehouses.
Eventually, Bong Load Custom Records discovered Beck.Beck was convinced
to fold in hip-hop beats into his rock music while working with label reps. He put out the single, "MTV Makes Me Want To Smoke
Crack" in 1992.
He followed up this track with "Loser," which came off of the Golden Feelings album (1993). The tune
immediately became a local radio smash. The song grew its own legs, and Bong Load had problems keeping up with the demand
for copies. Beck inked a non-exclusive deal with Geffen Records, and he continued to release autonomously, with both A Western
Harvest Field By Moonlight and Stereopathetic Soulmanure.In 1994, "Loser" arrived on the national scene and quickly took its
place as a generational anthem. Mellow Gold, his Geffen debut and third studio effort, claimed platinum status. Before 1994
came to a close, he dropped One Foot in the Grave, which served as his fourth studio effort. A year later, Beck set out on
his debut major tour.
Odelay arrived next, developed with Grammy Award-winning producers the Dust Brothers, in 1996
to high praise. The album featured hits like "Devil's Haircut," "The New Pollution," "Where It's At" and "Jack-Ass." The album
also claimed a pair of Grammy Awards for Beck in 1997.
Mutations (1998) dropped next, a mellow follow-up compared to
his other albums, and Midnite Vultures was released in 1999.
Beck carried on to perform a duet with Emmylou Harris,
popular country singer/songwriter in 1999, claim an additional Grammy in 2000 and make an appearance on Air's 10,000 Hz Legend
In 2002, Beck issued Sea Change, which was his eighth studio album. He supported the album with an acoustic
tour. Around the same time, Beck made it known that he had enlisted the Flaming Lips as his backing band.
