He is often referred to as "a thinking man's rock star.". As a whole, Browne's work is marked by compelling melodies, simple, honest, and insightful lyrics, and a flair for composition rarely seen in the world of rock and roll. His most current work, The Naked Ride Home was released up on September 24, 2002. Looking East (1996) was released soon after, but was not as successful critically or commercially.
After four years of silence and a break-up with his girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah, Browne returned with I'm Alive, a critically acclaimed album that had no hits but still sold respectably. World in Motion (1989) was also politically-oriented, but was not very successful. Lives in the Balance (1986) was an overtly political condemnation of Reaganism, and was a huge success with Browne fans, though not with mainstream audiences. Browne achieved less critical acclaim with Hold Out (1980), which also began his political protest era; the album was a commercial success, however, as was Lawyers in Love, the follow-up.
In 1979, Browne was a founding member of Musicians United for Safe Energy. Recorded mostly on the road, including some tracks recorded on buses or in hotel rooms, the album contains many renowned songs, such as the title track, "The Road", "Rosie", and "The Load-Out". Running on Empty (1978) was an even bigger success. Late for the Sky was a success, and Browne began recording his next LP while on tour.
Late for the Sky (1974) established a significant audience for Browne, who released his breakthrough album, The Pretender (1976) soon after the suicide of his wife, Phyllis. He didn't sustain pop success, though, and his next album, For Everyman (1973) was a commercial failure. In 1971, Browne signed with Asylum Records and released Jackson Browne (1972), which included "Doctor My Eyes", a major hit. After leaving New York City, Browne formed a folk band with Ned Doheney and Jack Wilce.
After moving to Greenwich Village, New York, Browne worked, for a brief period, in Tim Buckley's back-up band and on Nico's Chelsea Girl. A talented songwriter from the beginning, Browne signed a publishing contract with Nina Music, and his songs were performed by Tom Rush, the Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, the Byrds and Steve Noonan, among others. In 1966, his career began by joining the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. He was born in Heidelberg, Germany, but moved to Los Angeles, California at an early age and began singing folk music locally.
