Maybe you heard Jonathan Richman's song 'Egyptian Reggae' in the soundtrack of the recent hit film, BABY DRIVER. You might have even noticed one of his record albums on the floor of Baby's apartment. Now, that's respect.

Jonathan Richman is one of the greats of American music, revered by countless fellow artists, an enduring troubadour, and icon regarded by many as being as important as the Velvet Underground, the band that inspired him to become a musician. He's been making records and performing for over 45 years which is most of his life, winning fans and making friends around the world with his unique insight, guileless honesty and playfully catchy compositions. As the frontman and driving force behind The Modern Lovers in the early '70s, he had an outsized influence on the burgeoning punk movement and what would be called new wave. Former Modern Lovers member Jerry Harrison would go on to join Talking Heads, and David Robinson would provide the beat for The Cars.
