Beginning the seventies under a recording contract for Warner Bros., Guthrie helped set the standard for the singer-songwriter genre burgeoning at the time. Perhaps the best known is Hobo’s Lullaby (1972), featuring a diverse body of work. Most notable is the definitive version of Steve Goodman’s "The City of New Orleans" that was hit on all major charts. Another critically acclaimed album was "Amigo" (1976), which includes "Massachusetts," honored in 1981 as the official state folk song.

In 1983, after more than 15 years with Warner Records, Arlo left the “music industry” to become a truly independent artist, and established Rising Son Records (RSR), one of the first indie labels in existence. To date RSR has released over twenty titles, both all new materials and re-mastered versions of his classic records, including the Grammy-nominated Woody’s 20 Grow Big Songs (1991) FEATURING Arlo, his brother, Joady and sister, Nora.
Now Arlo continues the family tradition by including his family in his performances especially his daughter Sarah Lee Guthrie, who has her own reputation as a great performer.
