Joe Jackson Caricature, illustrated here in Southfield Park, Chicago, Illinois, May 19, 1979, age 25.
David Ian “Joe” Jackson is an English musician and singer-songwriter.
Jackson began playing piano in bars at the age of 16, and he also won a scholarship to study musical composition at London’s Royal Academy of Music.
He picked up the nickname “Joe,” based on his perceived resemblance to the puppet character Joe Piano, who was Snoopy in Joe Cool guise playing piano.
In 1978, a record producer heard Jackson’s demo tape and signed him to A&M Records. The next year the newly formed Joe Jackson Band released their debut album Look Sharp! A mix of rock, melodic jazz, and new wave, it mined a vein similar to that of contemporaries Elvis Costello and Graham Parker.
Some commercial success also followed, as the debut single “Is She Really Going Out with Him?” reached the top 40 in 5 countries, and no. 9 in Canada.
This was followed by a number of new wave singles before he moved to more jazz-inflected pop music and had a Top 10 hit in 1982 with “Steppin’ Out”.
On June 25, 2019, Jackson was among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire.
Jackson hits: “Is She Really Going Out with Him?”, “Steppin’ Out”, “A Slow Song”, “Be My Number Two”, “One More Time”, “You Can’t Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)”, “Another World”, “Home Town”, “It’s Different For Girls” and “Jumpin’ Jive”.
He has recorded 19 studio albums and received 5 Grammy Award nominations.
