"There is a real musicianship about him that I love..." — Keith Urban
With sales of more than 30 million albums worldwide, he remains the first and only solo artist to have his first seven singles hit the ‘Top 5’ on the Billboard charts. GRAMMY® award-winning artist Richard Marx has scored an amazing fourteen #1 singles, including “Hold on to the Nights,” “Now and Forever,” “Satisfied,” and the global smash hit “Right Here Waiting,” his bestselling and most enduring single which remained on the charts more than ten years after its release.
Despite stating, “I’ve never written a song that I thought was a hit,” Richard has also proven himself to be a prolific songwriter. He has written for Barbra Streisand, Vince Gill, LeAnn Rimes, Natalie Cole, Travis Tritt, and penned #1 hits for Josh Groban, Kenny Rogers, ‘N Sync, and Keith Urban; it was with Urban’s hit “Long Hot Summer,” that Richard joined an exclusive club of singer-songwriters who have had a number #1 hit in each of the last four decades. While the iconic hairstyle is long gone, the success of this charismatic performer endures!
