“You need something to open up a new door, to show you something you seen before but overlooked a hundred times or more.” - Bob Dylan
Robert Dylan is an American singer-songwriter. Often regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Dylan has been a major figure in popular culture during a career spanning more than 60 years. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" (1963) and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" (1964) became anthems for the civil rights and anti-war movements. His lyrics during this period incorporated a range of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences, defying pop music conventions and appealing to the burgeoning counterculture.
Bob Dylan was born Robert Allen Zimmerman in St. Mary's Hospital on May 24, 1941, in Duluth, Minnesota, and raised in Hibbing, Minnesota, on the Mesabi Range west of Lake Superior. Dylan formed several bands while attending Hibbing High School. In September 1959, Dylan moved to Minneapolis and enrolled at the University of Minnesota.
He moved to New York City in the early 1960s initially to visit his hero, Woodie Guthrie, on his deathbed, and then went on to become a staple figure in the folk community in Greenwich Village. His first eponymous record featured mostly cover material of folk standards, except for two original songs. Dylan started his career as a folk artist and was immersed in playing traditional folk standards. Arguably one of Dylan’s most celebrated accomplishments as a songwriter was that he democratised the form of folk songwriting, influencing other contemporary giants such as The Beatles. He brought the best elements of folk songwriting into the realm of rock ‘n’ roll and pop music, emphasising the importance of lyrics within these popular styles of music.
Dylan has been described as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, musically and culturally. He was included in the Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century, where he was called "master poet, caustic social critic and intrepid, guiding spirit of the counterculture generation". In 2008, the Pulitzer Prize jury awarded him a special citation for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power". President Barack Obama said of Dylan in 2012: "There is not a bigger giant in the history of American music." For 20 years, academics lobbied the Swedish Academy to give Dylan the Nobel Prize in Literature. He received the award in 2016, making Dylan the first musician to be awarded the Literature Prize.
