b. 5 Dec 1861, Liverpool, Britain, d. 27 July 1938. We were young in america, where his family members emigrated when he was eight-years-old, Thornton grew up in Boston. He worked well there like a performing waiter before shifting to NY to do quite similar kind of point. He wedded the vocalist Lizzie Cox, who influenced him to create a lot of his greatest tunes. Regrettably, Thornton’s songwriting was interrupted by rounds of serious taking in that have been themselves interspersed with intervals blow drying in New York’s Bellevue Medical center. For some time Thornton worked well in vaudeville inside a two times take action with Charles Lawlor. Thornton’s wife popularized a few of his tunes in her vaudeville take action, included in this ‘My Sweetheart’s THE PERSON WITHIN THE Moon’ and ‘When YOU HAD BEEN Nice Sixteen’. This last track was an enormous popular achievement, sheet music product sales running right into a lot of money. Sadly, Thornton’s taking in habits regularly led him to market his function outright for prepared cash. This is the situation with ‘Lovely Sixteen’ which, actually, he marketed to two different web publishers at exactly the same time, netting a grand total of $40 along with a suit. Thornton’s sentimental ballads dropped away from favour and even though he had minimal successes with ‘The Bridge Of Sighs’, ‘On The Benches WITHIN THE Recreation area’ and ‘Generally there’s A Mother LOOKING FORWARD TO You IN THE HOME, Sweet House’ his times being a songwriter waned following the switch of the hundred years.
