Bryan Ferry, England’s sensational multi genre artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall!
Bryan Ferry was born in Washington (County Durham, England) in 1945 and is a singer and songwriter. He’s best known as the lead vocalist and principal songwriter of Roxy Music, a band he formed in 1971 with bassist Graham Simpson. Other long-time members were Phil Manzanera (guitar), Andy Mackay (saxophone and oboe) and Paul Thompson (drums and percussion), and other former members include Brian Eno (synthesizer and "treatments"), Eddie Jobson (synthesiser and violin), and John Gustafson (bass). They made a name for themselves in Europe and Australia during the 1970s and early 1980s, and were a significant influence on early English punk music. They’re also widely regarded as pioneers of the more experimental and musically sophisticated elements of glam rock. In 1982, Bryan disbanded Roxy Music to focus on a solo career. He went on to release 15 studio albums, 3 live albums, 7 compilation albums, 40 music videos, 2 extended plays, and 49 singles. He’s also recorded many cover versions of songs by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones, and many others. His 10th solo album (As Time Goes By) was nominated for a Grammy Award.
