Billy Joel, The Piano Man, is one of the most successful singer/songwriters in modern memory. Like many other musicians in his generation, the music of the British Invasion of the 60s influenced his style and songwriting. He went from studio musician on rock classics like “Leader in the Pack” to Grammy Award winner in just a matter of years.
Billy Joel released 7 albums between the years of 1971 and 1980. Albums like “Piano Man”, “Street Life Serenade”, and “Glass Houses” became successful because of Joel’s musicianship and song writing skills. “New York State of Mind” and “You May Be Right” are songs that still sound fresh thirty years after they were first written and performed. In 2001 Joel added the occupation of Composer to list long list of achievements when he released the “Fantasies and Delusions” recording.
Audiences were reintroduced to Joel’s music with the introduction of the Tony Award winning Broadway show “Movin’ Out”. The musician, songwriter and singer has also won numerous Grammy Awards. Joel ranks with Elton John and Neil Diamond not only in terms of songwriting success but in the longevity of his career. His songs are energizing and imbued with much emotion.
