About Nick Drake

Nick Drake was a meditative British singer-songwriter who experienced major posthumous success after his music was featured in movies and advertising. ∙ Released in 1971, his dusky folk-rock LP Bryter Layter, featured contributions from then-Fairport Convention guitarist Richard Thompson and The Velvet Underground’s John Cale. ∙ Drake’s third and final LP, the intimate and uncompromising 1972 masterpiece Pink Moon, was named by Rolling Stone on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. ∙ His album sales increased significantly after the whimsical, melancholy folk song “Pink Moon” was used in a 1999 national automotive ad campaign. ∙ Lucinda Williams and Beck covered his stripped-down song “Which Will,” while Norah Jones has put a jazz-influenced spin on his “Day Is Done.” ∙ Reissues of 1971’s Bryter Layter and 1972’s Pink Moon both entered Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart in 2013. ∙ In 2017, Q magazine included his first album, 1969’s Five Leaves Left, on their list of Debut Albums That Changed Music.
