An essential piece in the rockabilly revival of the '80s and '90s, Brian Setzer was born in Massapequa, New York in 1959. After performing across the New York City circuit and finding minimal success, Setzer and his band, The Stray Cats, purchased one-way plane tickets to London in hopes that their rockabilly style would be better appreciated across the pond.
The band would find the success they so desperately sought while in London, and their sophomore record, 1982's Built for Speed, gained momentum in the U.S. The album would spawn two of the band's biggest hits in "Rock This Town" and "Stray Cat Strut". They have gone on to release 10 more studio albums since, with 2004's Rumble in Brixton being their last.
Setzer has also led a promising solo career, releasing nine studio albums dating back to 1986 and recently putting out Rockabilly Riot! All Original in 2014. His swing and jump blues project, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, has also found critical success. To date, the band has released ten studio albums, seven compilation albums and three live DVDs.
