Within his greater repertoire of songs, movies, plays and dialogues, Wainwright has focused on music since seeing Bob Dylan play at the famous Newport Folk Festival in 1962.
Wainwright wrote his first song after being inspired by an old lobsterman named Edgar in a Rhode Island boatyard. Since then, he's recorded over twenty albums on several different labels. Two of those albums, "I'm Alright" and "More Love Songs" were nominated for Grammys in the '80s. His witty, self-deprecating style mixed with a current of easily understood sentimentality has attracted a large fanbase. His latest album is a meditation on life, death and family. The album is, in a way, a family affair. The title, "Older Than My Old Man Now", alludes to Wainwright's late father, and the record features each of Wainwright's children.
