Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus on 25 August 1954) is an internationally known English singer-songwriter. Gaining prominence as an early participant in London's pub rock scene in the mid-70s, he burst into fame with his critically acclaimed 1977 debut 'My Aim Is True', still one of the most successful debuts of all time. He soon did much work in the genres of punk rock, power pop, and New Wave after he formed Elvis Costello & The Attractions. Read more on Last.fm

Les Disquaires de Paris Look Now est donc un opus plus que réussi qui se montre convaincant du début à la fin. Elvis Costello sait encore comment nous faire vibrer et il le démontre parfaitement avec cet album sans fausse note !
Look Now is a more than successful album that is convincing from the beginning to the end. Elvis Costello still knows how to make us vibrate and he demonstrates it perfectly with this album without false note!

Rock and Roll Globe "Elvis Costello and The Imposters are back, and arguably better than ever with his latest record, Look Now. A sharp, swanky record, redefining the expectations of Imposters fans and launching Costello into a new era while maintaining his legendary cool"
Dec 08, 2018
Vancouver Weekly Costello left the stage after the nine-song encore, only to come back for two more, including the evening closer, Nick Lowe-penned “What’s so Funny about) Peace, Love and Understanding.” This gave everyone what they had been waiting for and ensured all would exit into the brisk winter night with smiles on their faces
"Look Now And Then... It's Elvis Costello & The Imposters.”
Variety "As the example of what a rock ‘n’ roll showman should be, he’s still this century’s model."
Orange County Register "After more than 40 years in the spotlight, he’s still unstoppable, a total pro”
Star Tribune “Singing with the same fiery fusion of elegance and exuberance”
The Chicago Sun-Times “Costello was at ease and engaging, invigorated and unpredictable – a combination well worth return visits."
Worcester Telegram & Gazette “Costello was mesmerizing and menacing”
Dec 04, 2018
San Francisco Examiner "With his 21st century band The Imposters (longtime cohorts Steve Nieve on piano, Pete Thomas on drums and Davey Faragher on bass and vocals) and soulful backup vocalists Kitten Kuroi and Briana Lee, Costello, 64, dynamically surveyed four decades of his music in a nearly three-hour show."
Dec 03, 2018
Variety "A Costello show leaves ‘em wanting more, even at almost three hours, with the hope of one more surprise gem from pop music’s greatest modern songwriting catalog, or one more upraised index finger. As the example of what a rock ‘n’ roll showman should be, he’s still this century’s model."

Rolling Stone The new episode of our podcast, Rolling Stone Music Now, features an extended interview with Elvis Costello, who just released Look Now, his first album in five years.

BuzzBands.LA "Between songs, Costello was a witty storyteller. And sometimes a cryptic one. He seems to have an ability to weave a tale in front of us and then bring its soundtrack to life with little effort."
Nov 30, 2018
Orange County Register "After more than 40 years in the spotlight, he’s still unstoppable. A total pro, Costello proved at the House of Blues in Anaheim on Wednesday that an imperfection or two, when combined with the strength and beauty of his music, can make a strong night of music even more powerful."
Nov 29, 2018
Worcester Telegram & Gazette - Elvis Costello at the Boch Center Wang Theatre November 10th - “Costello, one of the few artists who is as compelling setting up a narrative to a song as he is singing a song, was in rare form.”

“Patience Is A Virtue”
The Memphis Flyer - "Costello & company whipped the crowd into a frenzy by the night's end, pulling everyone out of their seats with set-closer "Pump It Up," and keeping them aloft through a generous 10-song encore that culminated in a rousing "What's So Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding."
Nov 24, 2018
California Rocker “We’re living in turbulent times, so we can only hope Costello will bring that great sarcastic noise next time.”

USA TODAY Elvis Costello returns to 'Imperial' form on first album in 5 years, 'Look Now' reaffirming Costello’s position at the forefront of his generation’s most gifted composers.
Nov 21, 2018
Girl At The Rock Shows “There was a sense of concentration that was easy to spot as Elvis shredded in his unique style on his guitar. That concentration was matched by the concentration on the audience members’ faces as they attempted to not blink as to not miss a single moment of the performance.”
Nov 20, 2018
The Press in York "Costello still swaggers but it’s a sophisticated swagger now. And he rolls plenty of his own song: sung short stories, carefully and luxuriantly wrapped to take account of the occasional barb."
Nov 19, 2018
Local Spins "His charisma and musicianship are still strong as ever, and his aforementioned supporting cast that also consists of his original drummer Pete Thomas and longtime bassist Davey Faragher were on point all night."
Nov 18, 2018
City Pages Minneapolis “The three-hour Northrop performance proved that Costello is still as tough as ever, and even more complicated than we previously thought. He’s a soul singer, a pianist, a composer, a guitar virtuoso, a true entertainer.”

Audiophile Review Look Now, is its own thing, in some ways a summation of the many trajectories Elvis has pursued over the years, with soulful backing vocals (echoes of Punch The Clock), majestic Oddessey and Oracle (Zombies)-flavored constructs (I think I heard a Mellotron in there!) and like Painted From Memory, elegant superstar songwriter collaborations with the likes of Burt Bacharach and Carole King.
