Brian Hyland is an American pop recording artist who was particularly successful during the early 1960s, becoming something of a teen idol. He has gone on to release several country-influenced albums and have further chart hits. Brian has successfully recorded all different types of musical genres, producing hits from Novelty to Pop Ballads, Folk, Country and Pop Rock, Blues and Pop Soul. Brian’s career started early, first signed as a solo artist to a management contract, where he cut demos for band leader Sammy Kaye's publishing company, before Kapp Records heard a demo and signed a 16 year old Brian. In 1961, Brian’s infamous song "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" was used as a successful brainwashing technique in the classic Billy Wilder movie comedy, "One,Two,Three" starring James Cagney. It was Brian's first Gold Record, selling millions world wide and racing to #1 in the U.S., briefly edging ahead of Elvis' all time biggest hit, "It's Now Or Never," as well as reaching the top of the charts in Japan, where he toured and performed in a TV special. Brian moved on to ABC Records in 1961, producing many more sensational hits. Brian frequently appeared on television, including American Bandstand, often as a host, and the Saturday Night Show. Brian has performed on TV shows all around Europe and the U.S. and continues to tour around the world with song-writing/stage partner Rosmari performing classic Rock & Roll. They continue to write new music and record it whilst also writing a book about their experiences.Read Less
