Bryan Adams


If for us it’s 25, for Bryan Adams who has been in Estonia more than once, it’s 20 – last year he had the first cross Canada tour in 20 cities of his home country in 20 years. With full band, arena rock show and power! Canadians themselves consider the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter their nation's greatest rock 'n' roll artist. Born in 1959, BA has spent three decades making music, he released his first album in 1980 and has more than 20 of them altogether. His songs have achieved No 1 status in over 40 countries. Let’s name just a few: "Cuts Like A Knife", "Summer of 69", "Kids Wanna Rock", "Can't Stop This Thing We've Started", "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You". Recently he collaborated with houseduo Loverush UK! to produce the No 1 dance track in the UK "Tonight in Babylon" the video clip of which was directed by BA. It’s no wonder that he has an eye toward shooting. His other passion besides music is photography. Adams has taken pictures for famous fashion magazines and shot advertising campaigns for famous brands, exhibited his photoes on exhibitions and published his books of photoes the proceeds from which he has donated to breast cancer research. “If you were to catagorise me, I suppose I’m a portrait photographer that dabbles in fashion,” says the father of two little girls with a smile. His photographic activities help to fund The Bryan Adams Foundation that was set up in 2006 after the tsunami in southern Asia with the aim to improve the quality of people’s lives around the world, particularly to advance education and learning opportunities for children and young people because education is the best gift that a child can be given.
