Burt Bacharach Biography - A Global Musical Phenomenon
Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Bacharach grew up in New York, where he developed a keen interest in jazz and bebop musicians like Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. After studying music at university, he went on to become an accomplished musical arranger and director before making the natural progression to songwriting. A partnership with lyricist Hal David saw the pair go on to write the US Country chart smash 'The Story of My Life', which later proved a number one hit in the UK for British crooner Michael Holliday. Bacharach and David hit the top spot again with Perry Como's 'Magic Moments', and a writing partnership was born that would dominate popular music throughout the '60s and '70s.
Having written hundreds of songs for the likes of Dionne Warwick with 'I'll Never Fall in Love Again', The Beatles' with 'Baby It's You', and BJ Thomas with 'Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head', it wasn't long before the lyricist became a singer. Debut album Hit Maker! Burt Bacharach Plays His Hits arrived in 1965 and since then he's gone on to become one of the most decorated artists of his era, with his most recent album, At This Time, winning the Grammy Award in 2006 for the Best Pop Instrumental Album.
