His band, Graham Parker and the Rumour, formed in the summer of 1975 and began doing the rounds of the British pub rock scene. Their first album, Howlin' Wind, was released to acclaim in 1976 and rapidly followed by the stylistically similar Heat Treatment. A mixture of rock, ballads and reggae-influenced numbers, these albums reflected Parker's early influences (Motown, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan) and contained the songs which formed the core of Parker's live shows - "White Honey", "Soul Shoes", "Lady Doctor", "Fool's Gold" and his early signature tune "Don't Ask Me Questions". Graham Parker and the Rumour built a reputation as incendiary live performers.

Parker preceded the other "new wave" English singer-songwriters, Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson.

After his hit album Squeezing out Sparks, Graham Parker released Steady Nerves in 1985, which included his only US Top 40 hit, "Wake Up (Next to You)". A number of albums have followed since, with different stylistic emphases, but Parker continues to write songs of struggle, compassion, and defiance in a hostile society.
