Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, Michael Bolton, celebrates 50 years in the entertainment industry with his collection of greatest hits newly recorded in Perth, Australia with the West Australian Full Harmonic Orchestra.
Released just in time for Valentine’s Day, the collection celebrates the music legend’s 50th year in the entertainment industry, and features his greatest hits newly arranged and recorded at All Saints College Performing Arts Centre, Perth.
This iconic collection of hits follows the career of the singer/songwriter’s life, spanning from his first record deal at age 16, to his first Grammy eighteen years later.
Each song reveals a page in his coming of age story, performing with his childhood inspirations Ray Charles and Percy Sledge, and working with musical legends Bob Dylan and Luciano Pavarotti to perfect his craft of songwriting and singing.
"Over the years I have had the honour to collaborate with so many of my musical heroes and I’ve had the pleasure of delving into diverse musical genres,” says Bolton. "To celebrate my 50th year in entertainment, I’ve selected a collection of songs that really marked the chapters in my career and it has been my dream to bring them to life with a symphony orchestra. As a little blue collar boy from Connecticut, I can honestly say, that if you put your gift to work and commit fully, that’s when dreams come true!"
“It was a joy to record in Perth with the WA Philharmonic Orchestra. Australia is one of my favorite places to tour and it was truly an incredible experience taking the Greatest Hits that I’ve been performing live for over 30 years and giving them new dimension with this lush, rich instrumentation."
Alongside the new album, Bolton will also release Time, Love & Tenderness, a three-piece fragrance collection capturing the essence of the eponymous album and hit single. The unique package is designed to be both soulful and romantic.
