Born in Detroit, MI on July 10, 1942 as Sixto Diaz Rodriguez, Rodriguez, is a Mexican-American folk singer who uses his songs to address the plight of the poor and politically disenfranchised people of society. He is the son of working class Mexican immigrants, reflecting personal experience in his songs. In 1967 Rodriguez released his debut single “I’ll Slip Away”, and he released a total of two studio albums, 1970’s Cold Fact and 1971’s Coming From Reality. Retired from music to give politics a try, with no success, he made a comeback in the early 1990s and is still going strong today. A new generation of music lovers has recently been introduced to his music through the 2012 Oscar award winning documentary Searching For Sugar Man.
