Rufus Wainwright Bio

Rufus McGarrigle Wainwright (born July 22, 1973) is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter. He has recorded five albums of original music, several EPs, and numerous tracks included on compilations and film soundtracks. He is the son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, brother of Martha Wainwright, and half-brother of Lucy Wainwright Roche.

Rufus Wainwright was born in Rhinebeck, New York, to folk singers Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III (a direct descendant of Peter Stuyvesant, the last Director-General of New Netherland). His parents divorced when he was 3 years old, and he lived with his mother in Montréal, Canada for most of his youth. Wainwright is both a U.S and Canadian citizen. He attended high school at the Millbrook School in downstate New York (which would later inspire his song, "Millbrook"), and later briefly studied piano at Concordia and McGill Universities in Montréal. He began playing the piano at age six, and started touring at thirteen with "The McGarrigle Sisters and Family", a folk group featuring Rufus, his sister Martha, his mother Kate, and aunt Anna. His song, "I'm a-Runnin'", which he performed in the movie, Tommy Tricker and the Stamp Traveller, at the age of fourteen earned him a nomination for a 1989 Genie Award for Best Original Song. He was also nominated for a 1990 Juno Award for Most Promising Male Vocalist of the Year.
