Rufus Wainwright Background

Rufus Wainwright's parents split when he was just four years old. He was primarily raisedby his mother, Kate McGarrigle, a Canadian singer, in Montreal. At the age of six, he learned to play the piano. In his formative teen years, he participated in a group comprised of his family members, The McGarrigle Sisters and Family. Upon the urging of his mother, Wainwright contributed "I'm Runnin" to the soundtrack of a children's film. His maiden effort garnered both Genie and Juno award nods, Canada's counterparts to the Oscar and the Grammy. Later on, Wainwright took up music composition at McGill University. Wainwright found college life to be too confining, so he decided to leave the university and concentrate on his music professionally. He dove into his pursuit by playing Montreal clubs. Eventually, he was ableto get one of his homespun demo tapes into the hands of Lenny Waronker, a record exec. Taken by Wainwright's distinctive voice, he put Wainwright in touch with a host of record producers. For a year, Wainwright focused on sanding off the rough edges of his music. His efforts culminated into 1998's eponymous work. Tinged with a dark comicflair and fueled by the piano, therecordproved to be an instant success. It also immediately separated Wainwright from the herd of pop artists. In his native Canada, he was honored with the Juno for Best Alternative Album. And further south, Rolling Stone billed him as the Best New Artist. Poses appeared in 2001, boasting different kinds of instrumentation. Wainwright issued three more albums throughout the 2000s. His latest effort is Out of the Game, which dropped in 2012.
