For all of his accomplishments as an actor, best-selling author, and documentary subject, Rick Springfield’s first love has always been music. With 25 million records sold, 17 top-40 hits, including Don’t Talk to Strangers, An Affair of the Heart, I’ve Done Everything for You, Love Somebody and Human Touch, as well as a 1981 Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal for his No. 1 hit single “Jessie’s Girl,” Springfield shows no signs of slowing down. Rick’s latest studio album which is out now, Rocket Science features expertly crafted pop-rock songs that are open and electric. Springfield has toured for over 30 years, hand-delivering the hits to millions of fans worldwide via his dynamic live shows. His concerts are legendary with their rock heavy, high energy full band sets.
The Romantics burst out of Detroit in the late 1970’s with a power pop fervor, equally influenced by punk, new wave, garage rock and the British Invasion. The group’s self-titled 1980 debut album produced the massive hit, “What I Like About You.” Their 1983 album, In Heat, was certified gold in both the U.S. (selling more than 500,000 copies) and Canada, yielding the Top Three Billboard single, “Talking in Your Sleep.” They also scored global success with songs such as “One in a Million.” They continue to record and tour all over the world every year. In December 2015, The Romantics released a new single “Coming Back Home” available via Apple Music, ITunes, and other fine outlets.
