Grammy nominee Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. He is the son of folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle and the brother of Martha Wainwright, but Rufus has achieved his success by carving out his own singular sound in the worlds of rock, opera, theater, dance and film. Songwriter, operatic composer, arranger, actor, environmentalist, Wainwright is the embodiment of renaissance man. Equally capable of composing haunting arias and bouncing club songs, Wainwright is a consummate entertainer and performer. While his legacy as a cultural icon is assured, he continues to move forward, simultaneously challenging and embracing audiences with his sometimes audacious, often tender song craft.
