Albert Hammond has been writing hit songs for over fifty years. Albert achieved early success as an artist with his song “It Never Rains in Southern California,” and he has since built a multi-faceted career as an artist, songwriter and producer in both English-speaking and Latin markets.
Albert’s songs have repeatedly topped the international charts. Included among these are the #1 hits “When I Need You,” “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” “One Moment in Time,” and “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before.”
Albert is a master collaborator, lending his talents on guitar, piano and vocals to some of the business’s most successful songwriting teams. He and longtime writing partner Mike Hazlewood co-wrote many of Albert’s hits, including the classic “The Air that I Breathe.” Albert also co-wrote multiple hits with Diane Warren, among them Chicago’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Without Your Love,” Starship’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now,” Roy Orbison’s “Careless Heart,” Joe Cocker’s “Don’t You Love Me Anymore” and three-time hit “Don’t Turn Around,” recorded by Ace of Base, Neil Diamond and Aswad.
The artists who have recorded Albert’s songs are undoubtedly some of the greatest of our time—including Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Elton John, Joe Cocker, Diana Ross, Johnny Cash, K.D. Lang, Julio Iglesias and Josh Groban, to name just a few.
In 2010, Albert Hammond came back to the top charts with his album “Legend”, where he recorded some of his great compositions along with different artists such as Cliff Richard, Julio Iglesias, Al Stewart and Bonnie Tyler, including an original song which was recorded in a duet with his son Albert Hammond Jr.
