Beck 得到业界瞩目是在1994初，他的那首hip-hop民谣单曲“Loser”在全美国的非主流摇滚电台中被广为播放，他在之后迅速由一个独立小厂牌的小人物变成了大厂牌争夺战的焦点。最后他签约于着名的DGC，原因是DGC允许他在其它独立公司发行自己非商业的作品。之后他推出了处女作《Mellow Gold》，专辑得到了如潮赞誉，很快就成了一张金唱片，“Loser”也打入了Top10 Ten。不过Beck对于音乐探索的兴趣始终未减，在《Mellow Gold》发行后不久，Beck在两个不同的独立厂牌下便发行了两张不同风格的专辑：一张是更躁、更实验化的《Stereopathetic Soul Manure》、另一张是展现其民谣根源的《One Foot in the Grave》，尽管是在独立厂牌下发行，但其发行数字依然相当不错。1995年，Beck参加了非主流摇滚的顶尖盛会Lollapalooza，随后在 1996年发行了在DGC旗下的第二张专辑《Odelay》，评论完全是一边倒的欢呼，《Odelay》中的一些歌词甚至成了当年许多普通美国人的口头禅。当年许多大牌杂志和评论家均将此专辑列为年度专辑，连一贯保守的格莱美也给予了这张专辑数项提名。1998年，专辑《Mutations》发行，次年，受灵魂乐影响的《Midnite Vultures》发行。
Beck Hansen (born Bek David Campbell, July 8, 1970) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, known by his simple stage name of Beck. With his pop collage of musical styles, oblique, ironic lyrics, and post-modern arrangements incorporating samples, drum machines, live instrumentation and sound effects, Beck has been hailed by critics and the public throughout his musical career as being amongst the most idiosyncratic artists of 1990s alternative rock.
Beck rose to underground popularity with his earliest works, which combined acute social criticism (as in "MTV Makes Me Want to Smoke Crack" and "Deep Fried Love") with musical and lyrical experimentalism. He first came to wider public attention with his breakthrough single "Loser", a hit in 1993, which was dismissed by some as a novelty. However, Beck was not easily categorized into a single genre. Some likened his absurd, free-flowing lyrical style and the lo-fi folk songs of his early career to Bob Dylan, while the Beastie Boys were notable templates for his embrace of hip hop influences, and his later eclecticism sparked comparisons with Prince.
In several albums beginning in the late 1990s, Beck developed a slower, more melancholy sound, merging his trademark style with psychedelic rock, electronic, Brazilian Tropicalia, and the music of English folk icon Nick Drake and French avant pop star Serge Gainsbourg. He has also cited The Cars, Mantronix, Gary Wilson, Pussy Galore, Willie Dixon, Bill Broonzy, and Sonic Youth as among his influences. To most listeners, Odelay (1996) and Sea Change (2002), two of Beck's most popular and acclaimed recordings, represented polar opposites in style.
