Biography

T-Bone Burnett (born Joseph Henry Burnett) is perhaps best known as a producer of other artists, such as Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Counting Crows, The Wallflowers, Los Lobos, Gillian Welch, Kris Kristofferson, Cassandra Wilson, Elvis Costello, Autolux, and his ex-wife Sam Phillips. He is known for very natural-sounding productions. In his solo work, he is a respected, if quirky, singer/songwriter. He has also worked on the soundtracks of several films by the Coen Brothers (including the very successful O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, which won him a Grammy Award), as well as Cold Mountain and Walk the Line.

In the 70s, he was a member of the Alpha Band and toured as part of Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Review.

His first album of new solo material since 1992, The True False Identity, and the career retrospective Twenty Twenty: The Esssential T-Bone Burnett were both released in May 2006.

In 1997, Burnett created new songs for the Sam Shepard play The Tooth of Crime: Second Dance, which premiered in New York City the same year in an off-Broadway production that featured Vincent D’Onofrio and Kirk Acevedo. A CD of these songs (Tooth of Crime) was released in May, 2008.

    Oh yeah, mr. Burnett is one of the most atmospheric songwriters I've ever heard. Songs like 'Palestine Texas' are just unique

    Great artist ... he is so much underrated. He should be much more famous.

    Look for talent and you'll find this guy next to it. Dylan, the BoDeans, Los Lobos, his ex-wife Sam Phillips, movie soundtracks... T-Bone is just everywhere something good is playing! He's a wickedly funny songwriter, too, in his own right, as well as being a genius producer.

    T-Bone hasn't had a damn shout since May? About time then. Big shout out to T-Bone for the work he did on the new Leon-Elton album--they chose the right guy to helm that ship.
