‘ Canadian Music Hall of Fame ’ and top-selling Canadian artist of all time, BRYAN ADAMS will be joined by Canadian singer/songwriter and 13x JUNO Award nominee, AMANDA MARSHALL Canadian Alternative rock band, ODDS, plus a special guest yet to be announced for an amazing evening of great music and entertainment!
The tour was to be the foundation for his second album, You Want It, You Got It , which was recorded in two weeks and released in the spring of 1981.
Adams began to look forward to his next studio album, but in the interim released a hits compilation, So Far So Good , in November 1993 featuring the single "Please Forgive Me," a new Adams/Lange track.
The singles "Lets Make A Night To Remember" charted briefly in the Top 40 and the provocatively titled "The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You" proved to do well outside of the US, but didn't dent the US charts, perhaps due to the fact that his record company (A&M) transferred his contract in the middle of the release to independent rap label, Interscope Records.
In November 1999, Adams issued a second hits compilation, The Best of Me , but the American branch of A&M/Interscope declined to release it.
Adams returned in the spring of 2002 collaborating with Hans Zimmer on his first full- length song score for a film, the animated DreamWorks feature Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron .
The 36 selection Anthology spanned Adams' entire career from 1980 through to 2005 offering the very best of one of the most popular rock singer- songwriters to ever don jeans and a t-shirt.
On November 3, 2017, the acclaimed singer/songwriter released his best-of album, Ultimate , via UMe/Polydor Records, a collection of his much celebrated career, containing hits such as “Cuts Like A Knife” and “Run To You” , “When You’re Gone” with Melanie C and of course, “Everything I Do (I Do It For You)”.
He is a Companion of the Order of Canada, has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and Canada’s Walk of Fame and the recipient of numerous Juno Awards, 3 Academy Award and 5 Golden Globe nominations, a Grammy Award, American Music Awards and ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards.
They cultivated my interests in the arts, in sports, and they made sure I had every chance to find out what it was that I was good at, what I liked... Music was always the thing that I came back to."
They used to do that a lot, 'cause I used to sing in the bath a lot, I’d sing myself to sleep… They really made a point of letting me hear myself on tape when I was a kid.
When you get a lot of really positive reinforcement from the adults around you that makes you want to keep doing whatever it is that you are doing.
Singing for me was always like that, I always got a lot of really positive feedback from the grownups around me and that made me want to do whatever I could to get back up on stage."
For me, I never knew what the path was going to be for me, but I always knew that music would be a big part of it.
Music is a language like any other language and the earlier you learn to speak it, the more fluent you are going to be as you grow up."
Canadians first met Barney in 1988 as leader of the Legendary Hearts when MuchMusic embraced an indie video of the heartland anthem “Something to Live For.” Next came a self-titled Epic Records’ album which sold over 100,000 units, and earned the group a JUNO Award for Best New Group.
Guitar World raved “the album is a triumphant application of Etheridge’s signature rasp and substantial guitar chops to this classic genre,” while Edge Media Network declared Melissa “is a singer who can fire it up like Janis Joplin, touch the heart like Elvis Presley and steam up the windows like her musical hero, Otis Redding.”
Earning induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriters Hall of Fame, and Baseball Hall of Fame, he is also a New York Times best-selling author for his memoir, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music.
You need to be constantly evolving yet trying to remain timeless at the same time.” One day, if someone with perfect penmanship and a great memory for details takes up a Canadian Rock Family Tree project and plots the development of the Canadian roots rock community, they may discover that many — if not all — branches and roots at some point interconnect with the Skydiggers.
