Nick Lowe: From Young Basher To Old Master
Nick Lowe's done a lot of notable stuff for someone who isn't quite a household name. He wrote "(What's So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding." He produced the first five Elvis Costello LPs. He scored solo hits such as "So It Goes" and "Cruel to Be Kind." He was Johnny Cash's son-in-law for a little while.

But that was all back in the '70s and '80s, when Lowe was nicknamed “Basher” for his propensity to bang out records with a lot of speed and very little fuss. Since then, his pace has slowed and so have his tempos, but somehow his music has only become deeper and more affecting. Just watch his stripped-down performance of "Stoplight Roses" from his latest album, The Old Magic, and you'll know you’re in the presence of a master. Then get the album to hear just how little he needs to add to his songs in the studio to make them perfectly realized.
