Biography

The hit single “Sun glasses during the night” propelled Canadian pop star Corey Hart to the very best of the graphs and helped his debut album, 1983’s First Criminal offense, turn into a major hit in america and Canada. Given birth to in Montreal on, may 31, 1962, he journeyed frequently as a kid, surviving in the Bahamas along with his dad, but primarily pursuing his mom through Mexico, Spain, and Florida, among other areas. His early attempts to indication with Canadian record businesses were fruitless; then went to NY, worked for some time, and came back to Canada, ultimately signing a agreement with Aquarius Information. His awesome, athletic visual appearance made it an easy task to promote him like a post-teen sex sign, but while his songwriting by no means got extremely deep, he sang having a enthusiasm that produced his songs interesting. Boy within the Package, the 1985 follow-up to his debut, created a hit solitary with “By no means Surrender,” which would stay his highest-charting track. His next recording, Fields of Open fire, fulfilled with some industrial success, but from then on, his fortunes started to wane in america. His following two albums garnered small interest and 1990’s Bang was his last with Aquarius. 1992’s Attitude and Virtue was his first recording with Sire/Warner, before he became a member of Columbia and released a self-titled recording in 1996 and 1998’s Jade, which Hart explains as his best-sung record up to now. He continues to create music and lives in the Bahamas along with his wife and three daughters.
