Rufus Wainwright

A singer/songwriter whose lush, theatrical pop harked back to the traditions of Tin Pan Alley, cabaret, and even opera, Rufus Wainwright was born in 1973; the son of folk music luminaries Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, his parents divorced while he was a child, and he was raised by his mother in Montreal. Beginning his piano studies at age six, by 13 he was touring with his mother, aunt Anna, and his sister Martha in a group billed as the McGarrigle Sisters and Family; a year later, Wainwright was nominated for a Juno (the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy) as Most Promising Young Artist, while his "I'm A-Runnin'" was concurrently nominated for a Genie (the Canadian counterpart to an Oscar) for Best Song in a Film.

Coming out as a homosexual while still in his teens, Wainwright sought solace in opera throughout his adolescent years, also becoming an enormous fan of performers including Edith Piaf, Al Jolson, and Judy Garland. After attending the prestigious Millbrook School in upstate New York, he briefly studied music at Montreal's McGill University, eventually turning away from classical performance toward pop and rock. Becoming a fixture on the Montreal club circuit, Wainwright soon cut a series of demos with producer Pierre Marchand; Loudon Wainwright III then passed a copy of the tape to friend Van Dyke Parks, who in turn handed it on to DreamWorks exec Lenny Waronker. The label signed him soon after, resulting in the release of Rufus Wainwright during the spring of 1998. The album landed on several critics' "Best of 1998" lists, while Wainwright spent the next few years touring and appearing sporadically on soundtracks (Shrek) and compilations (The McGarrigle Hour). His sophomore album, Poses, brought similar acclaim in mid-2001.

After spending much of 2001 and 2002 touring on his own and with Tori Amos, Wainwright settled into Bearsville Studio in Woodstock, New York with producer Marius de Vries to record sort of a double album. The first project, Want One, was released in September 2003, with Want Two following a year later. In 2007, Wainwright released both Release the Stars and Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall. In 2010 Wainwright delivered his sixth studio album, the stripped-down All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu, a 12-track, Shakespeare-influenced collection of new material that relied almost solely on the artist's voice and piano. The following year, Wainwright embarked on his seventh album with the intention of returning to the ornate pop of his early days. The resulting Out of the Game, which was produced by Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Duran Duran), arrived in May 2012. In 2014, Wainwright delivered the concert album Live from the Artist's Den and the compilation Vibrate: The Best of Rufus Wainwright. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Love it!
Landon Shaw, how does his being gay affect his singing ability? First of all, being gay is not a bad thing. But even if it was as bad as being a murderer, sexuality doesn't make a difference in how good he sounds.
Hallelujah is sad makes me cry every time I also listen to it when I'm mad
I love love love love love this guy!

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your 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 have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
Such a lovely song i could losten to it forever ah
I love this song
I LOVE YOU RUFUS!!!
I didn't know he was homosexual! Cool! (:
Oh mr Leonard Cohen. Shrek & this amazin piece of poetry ?? Perhaps an error??
Leonard Cohen wrote this, NOT Rufus Wainwright, Pandora. Please change that.
I love this song!!!!!!!! ! ! :-) reminds me of shrek all the time , beautiful song by rufus wainwright plz follow me back
This is my most favorite song ever. It's so unique and the lyrics are just absolutely beautiful. Each person can use the words in a different way and that's what makes a song spectacular.
This makes me want to watch shrek
Don't read this ITS CRAZY! Repost this 14368 time within the next two minutes and then say your crush's name three times and then ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WILL HAPPEN! This is so crazy it's scary.
vlaskaris1
Why does this site get the song writer credits wrong so frequently? The song was written by Leonard Cohen - Sugar Mountain was written by Neil Young etc etc etc
Follow me, my KIK is on my profile
I do love this song! I have heard many artists doing their own versions of it.
wespinchot6
Chain messages annoy me too. But Hallelujah they help some folks feel better.
So I usually manage to let them slide past and don't let them get me down.

This song reminds me of shrek
Idk what people say your amazing and I love you<3 keep it up!
this song makes me cry every time
This freaked me out! This isn't fake. Apparently if you copy and paste this on ten comments you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out. If you brake the chain you will see a dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.
