Jonathan Richman

Jonathan Richman (born 16 May 1951) is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist.

In 1970 he founded The Modern Lovers, an influential proto-punk band, but since the mid-1970s has worked either solo or with low-key, generally acoustic backing.

He is known for his wide-eyed, unaffected (and occasionally near-childlike) lyrical outlook, and music that, while rooted in rock and roll, often draws on influences from around the world.
