Singer. Songwriter. Composer. Pianist. Author. These are just a few of the titles that can be used to describe Neil Sedaka. His impressive fifty year career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, a relevant songwriter for himself and other artists in the 60’s, a superstar in the 70’s, remaining a constant force in writing and performing presently. This is all thanks to the countless songs he has written, performed, and produced that continue to inspire artists and audiences around the world.
He has sold millions of records as an artist and has written or co-written over 500 songs for himself and other artists. In 2004, he received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Popular Music / Songwriters Hall of Fame at the organization's 35th annual induction and awards ceremony in New York. In October 2010, Neil was the Variety Club’s recipient of The Silver Heart Award, for his outstanding service to the music industry and his charitable work.
Neil has returned to his classical roots, composing his first symphonic piece “Joie De Vivre,” and his first piano concerto “Manhattan Intermezzo.” In addition to his extensive worldwide tour schedule, Neil has just released “The Real Neil,” a CD of brand new Sedaka material, including a few Sedaka classics.
