Rufus The Baptist

Rufus Wainwright

Want to know my latest musical obsession? Rufus Wainwright. The son of acclaimed Canadian American “alternative folk” singer Loudon Wainwright III, Rufus, in his last two albums, has brilliantly incorporated classical influences, folk, rock, even opera, and, well, plain camp, into songs of sheer beauty. Combine his goose bump invoking voice with lush arrangements, wonderful melodies and poignant, at times deliciously provocative lyrics and what you get is: a classic.
