Elvis Costello and The Imposters Bio

Elvis Costello and The Imposters

New wave and post-punk pioneer Elvis Costello was born Declan MacManus in London in 1954 to parents of Irish heritage. Costello’s father, a jazz trumpeter and singer, used the stage name Day Costello, while the “Elvis” of Costello’s stage name was inspired by Elvis Presley. Costello formed his first band, Flip City, in London, which played pub rock from 1974 to 1976. While working various office jobs, Costello signed as a solo artist with indie label Stiff Records, releasing the album My Aim Is True and his first hit single “Watching the Detectives” in 1977. Costello assembled a backing band, The Attractions, and gained fame through touring and releasing more hits, such as “(I Don’t Want to Go To) Chelsea” and “Pump It Up.” Other greatest hits from the 70s and 80s include “Oliver’s Army,” “Accidents Will Happen,” and “Veronica,” which Costello co-wrote with Paul McCartney. Costello split with The Attractions in the late 80s and grew more experimental, working jazz and country elements into his music. Since 2001, Costello has performed with backing band The Imposters. From the 70s until today, Costello has released over twenty studio albums.
