ARTIST BIO

Some of the first demos written in 1978 have surfaced over the years; most notably is “I’m Ready” (recorded for both the Cuts Like a Knife LP and later on the MTV Unplugged album) and “Remember”, which went on his first album. Both songs were covered by other artists before his first album was even released.

This time was also the start of a long songwriting partnership between Adams and co-writer Jim Vallance, which led to the first solo album, Bryan Adams, released in 1980. His second album, You Want It You Got It (1981), contained the FM radio hit “Lonely Nights”, but it wasn’t until his third album, Cuts Like a Knife, that he broke through with four hits in 1983, most notably with the title track. He quickly followed up that album with Reckless at the end of 1984, which produced six Top 40 songs and has since been certified five times platinum in the US. Next came Into the Fire in 1987, which was also certified platinum. This was the last album completely written by Adams and Vallance, but many of the fragments of their other songs ended up on the forthcoming block buster Waking up the Neighbours.

Live!Live!Live! is the complete recording of the 3 July 1988 concert in Werchter, Belgium, which was broadcast by the CBC in Canada and on MTV around the world. One of his most successful albums is 1991’s Waking up the Neighbours (see 1991 in music), which was produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Adams, and featured the single “Everything I Do (I Do It for You)”. This album and the song went to number one everywhere in the world in 1991 and 1992, with the song spending a record-breaking sixteen weeks at number one on the charts in the United Kingdom. The next album was the hits collection So Far So Good lead by the single “Please Forgive Me”, a slow rock ballad.

The next four years saw Adams releasing an album every year for four years, 18 til I Die in summer 1996, Bryan Adams MTV Unplugged in winter 1997, On a Day Like Today in autumn 1998, and The Best of Me worldwide in 1999 and in the U.S. in early 2002. In May 2002 he released the Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron DreamWorks soundtrack, which went gold in the U.S.

Room Service was released on 20 September 2004, in Canada and in Europe; “Open Road” was its first single. The CD was released in the U.S. on 10 May 2005, on Mercury Nashville. Anthology is a two CD set, released in 2005 as a retrospective collection of hits and some more obscure tracks from the 25 years of recording.
