Nick Drake

Description. Lang: en

Nicholas Rodney Drake (19 June 1948 – 25 November 1974) was an English singer-songwriter known for his acoustic guitar-based songs. Though he failed to find a wide audience during his lifetime, his work has since achieved wider recognition.Drake signed to Island Records when he was 20, while a student at the University of Cambridge. He released his debut album, Five Leaves Left, in 1969, followed by the jazzier, more upbeat Bryter Layter (1971) and the sparse Pink Moon (1972). The albums sold, in total, fewer than 4,000 copies in his lifetime. Drake's reluctance to perform live or give interviews contributed to his lack of success.
Drake suffered from depression, a condition evident in his lyrics. After recording Pink Moon, he withdrew from performance and retreated to his parents' home in rural Warwickshire. In 1974, aged 26, Drake died from an overdose of approximately 30 amitriptyline pills, a prescribed antidepressant. His cause of death was determined as suicide.
The 1979 release of the retrospective album Fruit Tree triggered a reassessment of Drake's music. By the mid-1980s, he was credited as an influence by such artists as Robert Smith, David Sylvian, and Peter Buck. In 1985, the Dream Academy reached the UK and US charts with "Life in a Northern Town", a song written about and dedicated to Drake. By the early 1990s, he had come to represent a "doomed romantic" musician in the UK music press. The first Drake biography was published in 1997, followed in 1998 by the documentary film A Stranger Among Us. In 1999, his song "Pink Moon" was used in a Volkswagen commercial, boosting his US album sales. By 2014, more than 2.4 million Nick Drake albums had been sold in the UK and the US.
