Barry Manilow Booking Profile
Barry Manilow is best known for his romantic and borderline saccharine songs. He cultivated a lush and melodic musical style that was popular during the pre-rock era, unabashedly embracing a sentimental style that appealed primarily to white middle-class women. His style evolved during the early 1980s, from tame, string-laden, AM-radio pop to a more classic, jazzy sound influenced by both swing and 1930s and ’40s Broadway show tunes. Barry Manilow got his foot in the door of the pop music world while working as part of a duo with the then-unknown Bette Midler. Beginning as her pianist, Manilow soon became her musical director and arranger, co-producing and arranging her Grammy Award-winning debut album and its follow-up. His second album featured the number one Billboard Pop single, “Mandy,” laying the groundwork for his rise to fame throughout the rest of the 1970s. Many more hit songs, including “I Write the Songs,” “Looks Like We Made It,” “Could It Be Magic” and “Copacabana (At the Copa),” followed, as did Grammy and Tony wins for a Broadway performance. As testament to his musical signifigance, Manilow was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002, alongside Sting and Michael Jackson.
Based on industry charts, he is the undisputed #1 Adult Contemporary Artist of all time, and his record sales exceed 50 million worldwide.
