Elvis Costello is a British singer-songwriter known as much for his quirky lyrics full of word plays as for his unique music, instrumentation and vocal style, influenced by diverse musical genres. He was born Declan Patrick MacManus in 1954 and only later adopted the name Elvis Costello. He was a professed admirer of Elvis Presley, so first part of the pseudonym came from there. Costello had been the maiden name of his mother.

Costello landed his first deal with Stiff Records in 1977 and recorded the album “My Aim Is True” with them. The album became a moderate hit. He later struck a deal with Columbia records who would go to publish his songs in the US. Later in the same year, Costello formed “The Attractions”, his own band that also included Bruce Thomas in bass guitar, Steve Nieve in piano and Pete Thomas as the drummer. “Watching the Detectives,” the single which was a smashing success was however recorded with Nieve, Andrew Bodnar and Steve Goulding. The last two played bass and drums, respectively, for The Rumour, the band he auditioned for The Attractions.

Costello is currently husband to singer Diana Krall and has two sons with her. Previously he was married twice. Mary Burgoyne was his first wife whom he married in 1974. In 1986, he married the former The Pogues bassist Cait O’Riordan. In 1998, Elvis Costello teamed up with Burt Bacharach to record “Painted From Memory,” an album of love songs. In March 2003, Costello was cemented as a musical legend with his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
