Singer-Songwriters Of The 80's
106 artists, 2068 songs
Many artists who had established their careers during the '60s and '70s remained the most popular singer-songwriters of the 1980s. Bruce Springsteen reached the peak of his career performing with the E-Street Band, but he also released critically acclaimed solo albums. Newcomers like Tracy Chapman revived the folk-influenced singer-songwriter tradition, paving the way for dozens of similarly minded new artists in the late '80s.
