Jeff Buckley

Since he was the son of cult songwriter Tim Buckley, Jeff Buckley faced more expectations and pre-conceived notions than most singer/songwriters. Perhaps it wasn't surprising that Jeff Buckley's music was related to his father's by only the thinnest of margins. Buckley's voice was grand and sweeping, which fit with the mock-operatic grandeur of his Van Morrison-meets-Led Zeppelin music. His audacious debut Grace made him one of the most popular alternative artists of the '90s, accentuated by his early and tragic death in 1997, and his cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" virtually redefined the song for a modern audience.

Buckley began playing while in high school. Eventually, he moved to Los Angeles to study music; while he was there, he performed with several jazz and funk bands, as well as playing with Shinehead, a leader in the dancehall reggae movement. A few years later, he moved to New York, forming Gods & Monsters with the experimental guitarist Gary Lucas. The band became a hip name, yet their lifespan was short. Buckley began a solo career playing clubs and coffeehouses, building up a considerable following. Soon, he signed a record deal with Columbia Records, releasing the Live at Sin-e EP in November of 1993. It received good reviews, yet they didn't compare to the raves Buckley's full-length debut, 1994's Grace, received. Unlike the EP, the album was recorded with a full band, which gave the record textures that surprised some of his long-time New York followers. Nevertheless, it made several year-end "Best of 1994" lists and earned him a belated alternative hit, "Last Goodbye," in the spring of 1995.

A long hiatus followed as Buckley worked on material for his follow-up effort, provisionally titled My Sweetheart, The Drunk. Originally slated to be produced by Tom Verlaine, who later dropped out of the project, Buckley finally began work on the record in Memphis during the late spring of 1997. On the night of May 29, he and a friend traveled to the local Mud Island Harbor, where Buckley spontaneously decided to go swimming in the Mississippi River and waded into the water fully clothed. A few minutes later, he disappeared under the waves; authorities were quickly contacted, but to no avail -- on June 4, his body was finally found floating near the city's famed Beale Street area. Buckley was 30 years old. A collection of unreleased recordings, Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk, appeared in 1998, and two live albums arrived during 2000-2001, Mystery White Boy and Live a l'Olympia. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Anyone noticed the last thing he said at Sin-e was "Lets go drink and sleep," and get how creepy that is? He drowned!?!?! He went swimming and died!!! "Lets go drink and sleep" and he drowned!!! Not okay :(

Although, I do remember dancing to Hallelujah as a kid. I always thought he had a sweet voice when I listened to it.

Call me idiotic, but wasn't there a guy on YouTube named Jeff Buckley??
Hallelujah is my favorite song of all time
Too soon too young
I don't get it. He was hit by the prop of a boat - so these comments are BS. I met Jeff years ago in a nightclub in HongKong. No mention of Ode to my girlfriend the drunk, or for me his best piece New Years Prayer. For those of you that like that song - go to Utube and listen to the version Michal Rudas did from Poland - it's great. Miss you Jeff!!!
real!
Talent, and passion- and everyone said - Hallelujah! The human condition resonates to the vibration of those who even attempt too for- fill our highest calling. Well done Jeff

Nothing is as good as Jeff Buckley!! So in love with his songs
Im in love with this song!!!! Follow for a follow c;
Again, I am Blessed by this Blessed song... Maybe I tend to lean to this version... I think that Jeff covers this song as best as it can be done. I stop all I am doing to listen to him again<><
The best singer with the most tragic story.

This had heart and soul in it and it will forever be great...than k you for leaving us something truly worth hearing again and again.
Hallelujah.. . What a Blessed song. Jeff, you have done a wonderful job with this song. This has inspired me to continue on volunteering to minister in Prisons<>
He sings the best version of this song. No one comes close to this.
Great version. Loved his Dad's music. Too bad they met the same fate
I can't listen to this song without crying... Jeff Buckley's version is absolutely the best. So beautiful, and yes, he was very attractive. It's hard to believe he died drowning in a river. What a shame...
after 5 deaths in 1 week, f**k bring it on
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
We had this JB. Now, we have a criminal getting deported to Canada. We need more musicians like this!
Remember when I moved in you? And the holy dove was moving too? And every breath we drew... was Hallelujah?
Hallelujah! The truth is here, now! Go to the truthcontest . c o m to see :-)
this song is really cool… hope you like it too you greedy b**tards!!!! !
Yep, Rosebud. . .what a bunch of crappy, inappropriat e comments. Guess 10 year olds are at work here. As to the song - his is the best version I've heard. And yes, he was a babe. Sad ending to both

I absolutely luv this song!
I find it hard listening to Jeff Buckley without tearing up.

This guy is sick!
Love that song.
absolutely brilliant and unique. He had the gift of taking me away with his singing. Such a waste of talent to have been taken so soon :(
Another victim of the Mississippi. Damn that river.
Love this so much. I can't hardly listen to any other covers of this song anymore, though. Jeff's just so amazing. Beautiful voice; wish he was still around. Love him.
No talant!
You stink dude!!!!
<3
gives me chills
Love this song:)
My number one, brilliant legend, Jeff
YEs EVE I would say that HALLELUJAH by Jeff Buckley is a song I listen to again and again--my favorite...h e l p s ease the pain
May he RIP... beautiful artist...my favorite version of HALLELUJAH
I love him! *crying* *singing along* *sobbing* *stuffs face with cheese balls and continues singing*
Let me just say that a lot of people don't have a favorite song. People are indecisive and change their favorite song usually depending on their mood. Not me. I have so much respect for Jeff Buckley. His cover of hallelujah has got to be the most beautiful sound my ears have ever heard. I love him and I love his voice and his guitar and his music and he's just beyond perfection. Gosh I love him. :')
amazing artist. respect.
Why did he have to go? When will we see someone as talented reach their fullest potential and not leave us? Nobody has come close to him. He truly was music itself in a physical form.
Shut up kathleencase y ; we'll all die. The question is will you live?
