“A remarkable pianist...with America in his music.” — The New York Times

A native of Williamsburg, Bruce Hornsby has built one of the most diverse, collaborative and adventurous careers in contemporary music. Drawing from a vast wellspring of American musical traditions, the singer, pianist, composer and bandleader has created an inspired body of work, and employed a vast array of stylistic approaches. The 13-time Grammy nominee’s commercial stock soared early on when “The Way It Is” became the most-played song on American radio in 1987 and won ASCAP’s Song of the Year award. Hits like “Mandolin Rain” and “Every Little Kiss” established Hornsby as a pop icon. Hornsby has collaborated with a prestigious list of artists including Bob Dylan, Bob Seger, Béla Fleck, Elton John, Chaka Khan, Tupac Shakur and Sting, among others. The sales stats and breadth of his superstar collaborations speak volumes about Hornsby’s unique fusion of mainstream appeal and wild musical diversity. His albums have sold more than 11 million copies worldwide. Visit for more information.
