One of Canada's most successful musicians, Bryan Adams entered the music industry as a songwriter in the late 1970s before achieving solo fame in The Eighties. Initially marketed as a "Canadian Springsteen" with a guitar-and-organ dominated sound, Adams developed his own distinctive melodic rock beginning with his breakthrough album, Cuts Like A Knife.

In 1984, Adams became a global superstar with the release of his most successful album, Reckless, which produced a number of hit singles, including the anthemic "Summer of 69" and the Power Ballad "Heaven".

In 1991, Adams teamed up with Mutt Lange to record the album Waking Up The Neighbours. During these sessions they wrote a new ballad for the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves soundtrack. Originally intended to be given to another artist, Adams released "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" himself, and it subsequently became ludicrously successful.

While his success has declined in America, Adams is still very popular in Europe and remains one of the most influential and best-selling Canadian artists of all time.

Not to be confused with Ryan Adams.
