About "T-Bone" Burnett

Joseph Henry “T-Bone” Burnett was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1948.

T-Bone has been performing since the 60s, when he played rhythm guitar for The Shadows. In 1975, he toured with Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue for a year – after the Revue ended, he and two other members formed The Alpha Band. When they broke up in 1979, each member went on to work as music producers.

T-Bone has produced albums from artists like Counting Crows, Elvis Costello, Los Lobos, The Wallflowers, Spinal Tap and his ex-wife Sam Phillips. He’s also worked on the soundtracks for films like O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, Inside Llewyn Davis, Walk the Line and Crazy Heart.

T-Bone has also had quite a critically successful solo career, despite never achieving widespread commercial success. He’s also won quite a few awards, including an Oscar, a Golden Globe and 12 Grammys.
