Bruce Cockburn is a Canadian rock and folk musician from Ottawa, Ontario. Cockburn picked up his first guitar at the age of 14, and studied at the Berklee School of Music in Boston for three semesters before heading back to Canada to join The Children.
Cockburn first started performing on his own in 1967, when he performed at the Mariposa Folk Festival. He went on to headline the festival in 1969, and in 1970, released his eponymous debut. It wasn’t until almost a decade later where Cockburn would find success in the United States. In 1979, Cockburn released Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws. The album featured the song “Wondering Where the Lions Are,” which reached number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, and earned Cockburn an appearance on Saturday Night Live.
Cockburn’s next taste of success came in 1984, when he released Stealing Fire. That album featured the single “If I Had a Rocket Launcher,” written about Guatemalan refugee camps. The song reached number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was another radio hit for Cockburn in the United States.
Cockburn then had the chance to work with famed producer T-Bone Burnett on a pair of albums, Nothing but a Burning Light and Dart to the Heart. While neither of those albums were particularly commercially successful, they were widely critically acclaimed.
Cockburn had a chance to display his activism through a short film when in 1998, he travelled with filmmaker Robert Lang to Mali in Africa where he shot the film River of Sand. The film would go on to win the Regard Canadien award for best documentary at the Vues d’Afrique Film Festival in Montreal.
In 2001, Cockburn was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and was paid tribute to by such artists as U2, Jackson Browne, and the Barenaked Ladies. Cockburn was inducted into the Canadian Broadcast Hall of Fame in 2002, and in 2007, he was awarded two honorary doctorates from Queens University in Kingston, Ontario and from Memorial University of Newfoundland. In 2012, Cockburn received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for outstanding achievement.
