Info

Joe Jackson (born David Ian Jackson, 11 August 1954, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire ) is an English musician and singer-songwriter now living in Berlin, described as a unique and critically acclaimed recording artist, whose five Grammy nominations span 1979 to 2001. He is probably best-known for the 1979 hit song "Is She Really Going Out with Him?", which still gets extensive FM radio airplay; for his 1982 hit, "Steppin' Out"; and for his 1984 hit, "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)". Along with Elvis Costello and Graham Parker, Jackson was a part of the trio of British-based artists that challenged the punk scene and brought a New Wave sound to the United States in the late 1970s. He was popular for his power-pop and New Wave sound early on before moving to more eclectic, though less commercially successful, pop/jazz/classical musical pieces.
