An icon of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Jackson Browne is still the voice of a whole generation, embodying the ideals and carrying the word on the approaching of social, political, and environmental issues. These very issues, which have evolved through the passage of time, have transcended their historical context to become more pertinent and urgent than ever before.
Jackson would start his formal musical career in the late 1960s, not only as a musician but also as a songwriter for musicians like the American singer and songwriter Joan Baez (Before the Deluge, 1974), as well as internationally recognized rock bands like The Eagles (Doolin’ Dalton, James Dean, Nightingale, Take It Easy).
At the age of 23, and after performing as a member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and as German singer Nico's backup guitarist, among other gigs, Jackson released his first self-titled album in 1972 and gained international notoriety with the classic "Doctor My Eyes."
Jackson’s solo career would only go upward with the release of "Stay," a song originally written by Maurice Williams in the 1960s and released on the album Running on Empty (1977).
In 1979, he started to take action in activism by performing in numerous performances with MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) with musicians and other activists like Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, Harvey Wasserman, and John Hall. MUSE organized a series of five “No Nukes” concerts held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
In 1983, he would take the charts again with "Lawyers in Love," and in 1986 with "You're a Friend of Mine," forming a duo with Clarence Clemons, the saxophonist of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band.
