American singer, songwriter, composer and actor, and a member of a noted family. His parents, folk singers Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III, divorced when he was three.

With several albums and DVDs to his credit, Wainwright is a talented songwriter and vocalist. A versatile young man, he has also been seen in films and has written film scores. His first opera, aptly entitled "Prima Donna," debuted in summer 2009. Among his films are a role in "The Aviator" (2004) starring Leonardo di Caprio.

In late 2010 Wainwright became engaged to his partner Jörn Weisbrodt.

In 2011, Wainwright announced that he and friend Lorca Cohen, daughter of Leonard Cohen, had had a child in a parenting partnership. Their daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on 2 February 2011 in Los Angeles.

On 23 August 2012, Wainwright and Weisbrodt married in Montauk, New York.
