Jeff Buckley was an American singer and guitarist whose unique voice, spanning four octaves, launched him to legendary status.
In 1994, Buckley released his first album Grace, composed of ten tracks. While sales were slow, the album quickly received critical acclaim and appreciation from other musicians (among them Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney). Just before recordings began for his second album which was to be called My Sweetheart The Drunk, Buckley drowned in the Wolf river. Jeff Buckley's father was the musician Tim Buckley, who released a series of highly acclaimed folk and jazz albums in the late 1960s and early 1970s before his own untimely death in 1975.
