KCRW 106.9 Santa Barbara Presents
An Evening with Rufus Wainwright


“One of the finest and most idiosyncratic singer-songwriters working today.” Los Angeles Times

“A night of pure pop joy.” Rolling Stone


Affectionately called “the greatest songwriter on the planet” by Elton John and praised for his “genuine originality” (The New York Times), Rufus Wainwright is one of the most talented male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. The son of folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle and brother of Martha Wainwright, Rufus has achieved his own success by carving out a singular, lush and theatrical sound in fields from rock and opera to dance and film. His new pop-tinged album, Out of the Game, produced by Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele) is drawing rave reviews, with The Guardian (U.K.) lauding songs that “throb with newfound wonder.”
