Bryan Ferry is a remarkable singer and songwriter who has climbed up the ladder of success attaining great heights from a poor background. Bryan’s passion for music grew along the years when he was young.
Through his youthful years, he focused solely on his education studying up until college. While studying fine art at Newcastle University, Bryan decided to give music a try by joining City Blues – a student band. His time in this band greatly influenced his career as it served as a turning point for him in his life.
It was as though City Blues stirred up the passion that had been building up in him as it revealed to him his potential and how he would rather do nothing else. After completing his studies at Newcastle, he decided to move to London in order to pursue a musical career.
On arriving London, he worked as a pottery teacher for a while at Holland Park School due to his qualifications in fine art. The primary reason that brought him to London kept burning in him, he had come with much passion and nothing could quench it. He absolutely hated his teaching job as his focus was already fixed on music.
2 years later, he formed the rock band Roxy Music. In 1972, they released their first single Virginia Plain which became a success making its way on the UK top 5. From that point, Bryan’s career began to blossom together with the band up until 1983.
This was the year, Bryan decided he had attained the height he needed to go solo and therefore dissolved the band. 2 years later, he released his 6th solo album Boys and Girls which became a record breaker in his career. Boys and Girls ranked 1st in the UK and best-selling in the US, a peak none of his other works had attained.
Roxy Music made a comeback in 2001. Their songs from years back seemed to still capture the heart of their fans as they recorded no new music but just toured.
Through the 47 years of his career, Bryan has released 15 studio albums.
