We weren't afraid to mix some crazy styles into the standard rockabilly look. We also took a lot of different musical influences that were part of that era.

|Birth:||10th April, 1959|
|Profession:||Guitarist, Lyricist, Singer|
Brian Setzer was born in Massapequa, New York. He is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter. He first found widespread success in the early 1980s with the 1950s-style rockabilly revival group Stray Cats, and revitalized his career in the late 1990s with his Swing revival band, The Brian Setzer Orchestra. In the summer of 1986, Setzer released his first solo album, The Knife Feels Like Justice, which marked a huge move away from his trademark sound and towards a more mainstream 'rock-roots' sound, which was popularized at the time by such other artists such as John Cougar Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen. Setzer continued to release solo-billed albums sporadically, including a solo live disc Rockin' By Myself in 1998. In 2001 he released an album titled Ignition with his new trio billed as the '68 Comeback Special. Setzer was awarded the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award at the 1999 Gibson Awards. Since 2000, Setzer has earned three Grammy Awards: Best Pop Performance Duo/Group for Jump Jive An' Wail", and two Best Pop Instrumental Performance awards for "Sleep Walk" and "Caravan".
