Simplicity is the heart of Jim Brickman’s solo piano songs. Solo as in himself, two hands, and eighty-eight keys. His back-to-basics musical sensibility is rooted in the core of solo piano.
Brickman’s philosophy has not changed since his 1994 debut album, No Words, burst onto the music scene. U.S. radio launched the single “Rocket to the Moon” into orbit, making history as the first solo instrumental ever to land on the pop charts.
With that, Brickman transformed the popularity of solo piano, playing his original, pop-style instrumentals and inviting star-studded vocal collaborators to join in. He has since become the most charted Adult Contemporary artist and best-selling solo pianist to date.
His Tin Pan Alley sensibility, uncomplicated melodies, and down-to-earth nature have taken him from the Grand Ole Opry to Carnegie Hall, and from Disney World to the White House. You can also hear his music on Pandora, television commercials, and shows such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Jimmy Kimmel Live! as well as on CBS Sports, coverage of the Olympics, and all over the cable network HGTV.
Brickman’s signature style earned him two Grammy Awards, four Gold albums, and thirty charted Adult Contemporary radio hits. He held the top three spots on Billboard’s new age chart at one time. He received top honors as two-time SESAC “Songwriter of the Year,” the Dove Award presented by the Gospel Music Association, and a Canadian Country Music Award.
Jim Brickman is a worldwide sensation with his soulful piano playing. His simplistic song style has won the hearts of many, and has kept his music on the top of the charts across the country and the world.
Jim Brickman’s fans know him as the man who plays lyrical, soothing melodies on the piano, including his well-known compositions sung by Olivia Newton John, Michael Bolton and other famous musicians.
