Claim to Fame:
Nick Drake was an English singer-songwriter and musician best known for his acoustic, mournful, melancholy songs. With only three albums released to middling reviews, abysmal sales coupled with his descent into mental illness he failed to find a wide audience during his lifetime, And while some like to call him "the most influential English singer-songwriters of the last 50 years", quite frankly his influence and legacy has largely been forgotten.
