Overview

Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, is a self-taught guitarist, who began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s as the city suffered postindustrial urban decay.

His two albums Cold Fact from 1969 and Coming from Reality from 1971 went unnoticed in the United States, but in the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. His story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, Searching for Sugar Man, which has given Rodriguez a new measure of fame in the United States with his music and story now reaching audiences worldwide.
