With the release of his critically acclaimed eponymous debut in 1971, Emitt Rhodes gained a reputation as a "one-man Beatles," writing, recording and producing the album in his home studio. But after contract battles and industry demands, Rhodes made what he thought was his last album, Farewell to Paradise, in 1973. No one thought they'd ever see a new Emitt Rhodes album. On February 26, 2016, Rhodes released his first album in 43 years, Rainbow Ends, on Omnivore Recordings. On February 25, the day before the album release, Emitt Rhodes visited the GRAMMY Museum to talk about the making of Rainbow Ends and perform before an intimate crowd in the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater. Rainbow Ends features special guest appearances by Aimee Mann, Susanna Hoffs (Bangles), composer/producer Jon Brion, Wilco's Nels Cline and Pat Sansone, Bleu, and Probyn Gregory & Nelson Bragg from Brian Wilson's band, among others.
