  • Tom Waits

    That gravely voice, that dark storytelling, those surrealist atmospheres and unconventional instrumental choices (from trombone to barroom piano to marimba)—that is the peculiarity that makes Tom Waits such a lovable tramp. He’s one part Kerouac carnie and one part David Lynch film, the seedy characters of his stories populating the fringes of Americana. With a career that spans four decades and 20 albums, Waits is considered one of the most distinct and influential artists in modern music. He has also become an enduring part of American cinema, acting in and scoring films by such luminaries as Francis Ford Coppola and Jim Jarmusch. Though many of his songs have been more famously covered—by the Eagles (“Ol’ ‘55”), Rod Stewart (“Downtown Train”) and Bruce Springsteen (“Jersey Girl”), for example—his albums like Swordfishtrombones (1983), Rain Dogs (1985), and Mule Variations (1999) are essential listening.
