As a performer, songwriter, and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly 30-year career has had innumerable highlights.
The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping, “Hold on to the Night,” and with “Don’t Mean Nothing,” earning him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.
Each follow-up album was even more successful with #1 hits “Satisfied,” “Right Here Waiting,” “Keep Coming Back,” “Hazard,” and “Now and Forever. Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history, making him the only male artist to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.
As a writer/producer, Marx’s success is equally impressive, earning him a Grammy for coauthoring Luther Vandross’ “Dance with My Father” and brilliant collaborations with Josh Groban, Keith Urban, Jennifer Nettles, Sara Bareilles, and Vince Gill.
Marx’s latest album, “Beautiful Goodbye,” took him in a new, deliberately sexier direction.
“The songs on this record were influenced greatly by everyone from Sade to Bebel Gilberto to various EDM artists to even Chopin. I’m known for romantic music in the past, but this music I wrote is all more sensual and ethereal, and the lyrics are more adventurous than I’ve been willing to go in the past....a thrill beyond anything I’ve done in the studio. And singing these songs brought out what I believe are the most effortless vocals of my recording career, so far.”
