Elvis Costello

& The Imposters


Among his 600 published titles, Costello is perhaps best known for the songs, “Alison”, “Pump It Up”, “Every Day I Write The Book”, while a popular concert favorite is Nick Lowe’s ever-timely “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding”. For the last twenty years he has toured and recorded with The Imposters – Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher. Since the 2017 release of the GRAMMY-winning, Look Now, Costello and co-producer, Sebastian Krys have worked on seven record releases together, including The Boy Named If and The Resurrection Of Rust in 2022.

Critics have long tried to categorize Elvis Costello’s music throughout the decades. He has said that pigeonholing any type of art ultimately saps it of any originality: “All these labels — when they called it ‘jazz,’ originally, they weren’t saying a good thing. Y’know, they were actually denigrating the music. They called it ‘rock n’ roll’ — it was slang for something that was taboo, but it was also used to denigrate the music. Y’know, sometimes the labels that are attached to things are a way of confining it. When I started out, they wanted to say what we were doing as distinct from punk was ‘new wave.’ It meant nothing to me because I never identified myself with such an idea, y’know?
