Bonnie Tyler

    With a career spanning four decades, and a voice instantly identifiable the world over, Bonnie Tyler is the international first lady of rock. Born in Skewen, Neath, South Wales, Tyler grew up

    listening to, and being influenced by, the legendary female artists of the day, especially Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.



    Bonnie’s breakthrough hit was her second ever single ‘Lost In France’ which climbed to No.9

    in the UK charts. The track was then released in Europe and became a huge hit, staying in the

    Top Ten in Germany for over six months. ‘It’s A Heartache’, Bonnie’s next single was her

    first hit in the USA, reaching No. 3 in the Billboard chart, and was a massive hit all over the

    world. The 80’s saw even greater success. A burgeoning collaboration with epic rock pioneer Jim

    Steinman garnered both Grammy Nomination and phenomenal international recognition with

    the album ‘Faster Than The Speed Of Night’, and multi-platinum selling power ballad ‘Total

    Eclipse Of The Heart’. ‘Holding Out For A Hero’ from the soundtrack to the film ‘Footloose’, proved similarly popular and has also featured in several other movies since including the Shrek series.



    In the 90’s Tyler worked with ‘the German Simon Cowell’ writer/producer Deiter Bohlen

    giving rise to albums including the monster German hit ‘Bitterblue’. Bonnie was impacting the European market so much that in 2003 she recorded a dual-language cover of ‘Total Eclipse’, with French artist Kareen Antonn titled ‘Si demain (Turn Around)’ which topped the charts in Belgium, Poland and France, the latter for ten weeks.



    Both ‘It's a Heartache’ and ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ are among the best-selling singles of all

    time, with sales in excess of six million. Bonnie’s work has earned her two Grammy Award nominations and three Brit Award nominations, among other accolades.



    Bonnie’s current album, ‘Rocks and Honey’, which was recorded in Nashville and Produced by David Huff, is now available from iTunes and amazon.co.uk.
