FRIDAY 30TH MAY 2014
Over 14's under 16 with adult
Albert Hammond has been writing hit songs for over forty years. There has not been a single decade in which Albert has not written multiple hits songs since he scored his first hit with “Little Arrows” at the age of 24. His songs have been responsible for the sale of over 360 million records worldwide including over 30 chart-topping hits. Many of his most beloved songs, like “The Air That I Breathe” and “When I Need You,” have become hits multiple times with various artists, decade after decade.
Albert achieved early success as an artist with his song “It Never Rains in Southern California,” and he has since built a multi-faceted career as an artist, songwriter and producer in both English-speaking and Latin markets. He is one of very few songwriters of our time whose songs not only have the mass appeal to make them pop hits, but whose very same songs also have the timelessness and depth that over time turns them into standards. Few writers can successfully walk this line and deliver hits for the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today. Albert also co-wrote multiple hits with Diane Warren, among them Chicago’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Without Your Love,” Starship’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now,” Roy Orbison’s “Careless Heart,” Joe Cocker’s “Don’t You Love Me Anymore” and three-time hit “Don’t Turn Around,” recorded by Ace of Base, Neil Diamond and Aswad. Albert has also written hits with Hal David (“99 Miles from L.A.,” “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before”) and John Bettis (“One Moment in Time,” “When You Tell Me That You Love Me,” and The Carpenters’ hit “I Need To Be In Love”).
