The Life of Bryan

Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams is one of the most successful and best-selling music artists of all time. Bryan joined his first band when he was only 15 years old and, at age 20, released his eponymous debut album. His 1984 album “Reckless,” which contained six charting singles and included the classic “Summer of 69,” made him a global star.

Numerous albums and singles later Bryan appears to have no thoughts of slowing down. His 2022 album “So Happy It Hurts” went to number 2 on the German and Swiss album charts and reached number 3 in the UK and Austria. Earlier this year the single, The Thing That Wrecks You,” a collaboration with Canadian country music star, Tenille Townes, rose to number 4 on the RadiJohan Top 10.

Bryan has started off the month of September 2023 by releasing two new songs. “Sometimes You Lose Before You win” and “You’re Awesome are both from the soundtrack for the upcoming Comedy Central feature film¬†“Office Race.”¬†

“Sometimes You Lose Before You win” is new this week on RadiJohan.

When Townes Met Adams

Tenille Townes is a Canadian Country music singer who is the reigning Canadian Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year. She has teamed up with one of the best-selling music artists of all time, fellow Canadian Bryan Adams after a chance encounter on her way out of a studio where she had been recording, not realising that the studio belonged to Bryan.

We talked for just a few minutes, and I was so happy to meet him because his path as a fellow Canadian has been incredibly inspiring to me, with a collection of songs that have impacted the world in such a huge way. Later that night, I thought about ‘The Thing That Wrecks You,’ a song I’d written a while before with Kate York and Daniel Tashian, and how the spirit of that song made me think about his voice. I decided to go out on a limb and sent him the song along with a letter asking if he might be up for singing on it with me. Fast forward to now, where not only have I gotten to sing with a hero of mine, but I have also found a mentor and friend through this whole adventure. This song is evidence to me that putting a wild thought out in the atmosphere and believing in it is a powerful thing.”
