Richard Marx has sold more than 30 million albums, owns 26 top 20 singles and 17 top 10s and, as a songwriter, earned a Grammy for song of the year. He's also the writer of fourteen number one songs.
As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly three-decade-long career has had plenty of highlights. His self-titled debut went to #8 and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping ‘Hold on to the Nights’. The follow-up, ‘Repeat Offender’, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles in ‘Satisfied’ and ‘Right Here Waiting’. When both ‘Rush Street’ and ‘Paid Vacation’ went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivalled any in pop-rock music history.
To mark the release of ‘Rush Street’, he embarked on a 24-hour, five-city blitz on MGM Grand Airlines, performing at every stop, a record that has yet to be broken. To this day, he is the only male artist in history to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. Richard remains active as a live performer, with an ongoing solo acoustic tour that’s taken him around the U.S. as well as to China, Russia and throughout Europe.
