NEIL SEDAKA

 

Singer. Songwriter. Composer. Pianist. Author. These are just a few of the titles that describe NEIL SEDAKA. Classically trained at Juilliard, his impressive sixty-year career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, a tunesmith for himself and other artists in the 60’s, a 70’s superstar as well as a current constant force in writing and performing. Sedaka recorded favorite chart toppers "The Diary," "Oh! Carol," "Stairway to Heaven," "Calendar Girl," "Little Devil," "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen," "Next Door To An Angel," and "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do”.

 

Neil has written hit songs for artists including Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, The Monkees, The Fifth Dimension, and Captain and Tennille. Always looking to challenge himself as a composer, he has returned to his classical roots, composing his first symphony, “Joie De Vivre”, and his first piano concerto, “Manhattan Intermezzo”. Neil recorded these two pieces with the Philharmonia Orchestra of London at Air Studios in London. “Manhattan Intermezzo” was released on 2013’s The Real Neil.  “Joie De Vivre” was released on 2016’s I Do It For Applause.

With a career spanning over six decades, the National Academy of Popular Music has twice honored him, first with his induction into The Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984, and in 2004 with The Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes outstanding work in furthering the successes of songwriters.
