Jackson Browne is a singer-songwriter in the pop genre. He started writing and singing music approximately 1973 and is still active.His specialties include epic ballads, Silly Love Songs, AntiLove Songs that were mistaken for Silly Love Songs, protest songs and syncopation.His first hit single — at least the first one the classic rock stations are likely to play — is "Doctor My Eyes." "Take It Easy" was written and recorded by him with the help of The Eagles' Glen Frey, and recorded by them with his permision, but his version was Covered Up by theirs'.His Magnum Opus may be 1976's The Pretender, which contains "Here Come Those Tears Again", "Linda Paloma" and the title track. Rock critics have tended to shower the most praise on 1974's Late for the Sky, which contains classics like "For a Dancer", "Before the Deluge", "Fountain of Sorrow", and the title track. Others may like Jackson Browne (1972, notable tracks: "Jamaica Say You Will", "Song for Adam", "Doctor My Eyes", "Rock Me on the Water") or For Everyman (1973, notable tracks: "Take It Easy", "These Days", "For Everyman") the best.Lawyers in Love came in 1983. It is another classic, containing the title song. Lives in the Balance followed three years later with the track "In the Shape of a Heart."His career suffered in the late 1980s and early 1990s, partly because the musical climate was changing, partly because of allegations of domestic abuse. An investigation cleared him, but the allegations hurt his rep. He still has a fanbase out there, though.
