Loudon Wainwright III est un chanteur de folk et un acteur américain né le 5 septembre 1946, père de Rufus Wainwright et de Martha Wainwright, tous deux musiciens également.
Il décide de faire de la musique après avoir écouté le « All Shook Up » d’Elvis Presley et apprend la guitare après avoir vu Bob Dylan au festival de Newport en 1963.
Wainwright's first marriage was to singer/songwriter Kate McGarrigle. During their marriage, which ended in divorce, they had two children, Rufus and Martha. Rufus was the inspiration behind two of Wainwright's songs: "Rufus Is a Tit Man" (referring to Rufus during breastfeeding) and "A Father and a Son", a retrospective. Wainwright's songs inspired by Martha are "Pretty Little Martha" (composed about her as an infant), "Five Years Old" (about her fifth birthday), and the brutally honest "Hitting You" (about her teenage years).
Both Rufus and Martha have become singer/songwriters. Rufus composed "Dinner at Eight" about his conflicted relationship with his father. Martha composed the song "Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole" about, according to her, her father. They sang a duet together on the song "Father Daughter Dialogue" (on Wainwright's 1995 album Grown Man), and collaborated on the song "You Never Phone" (on Wainwright's 2003 album So Damn Happy).
Wainwright had a relationship with singer Suzzy Roche, during which they had one daughter, singer Lucy Wainwright Roche. The relationship ended, although Wainwright and Suzzy Roche remained on good terms and continued to occasionally appear onstage together.
Wainwright was married a second time in 2005, to actress Ritamarie Kelly; they have a daughter Alexandra (Lexie) Kelly Wainwright (born 1992).
