In 1948, singer/songwriter Willie Nile (Robert Anthony Noonan) was born. In 1980, Nile released his debut album which was very successful. In 1981, Nile released his second album, Golden Down, though it was not as well-received as his first album. Shortly thereafter Nile faced legal problems that kept him from touring and recording new albums. By 1988, he was back in the studio, and his most recent releases are a studio album in 2014, and a live album in 2015.
