Recognised for her distinctive raspy voice, Bonnie Tyler’s performing career began in 1969 after she entered a talent competition at the local rugby club in her hometown of Skewen. She has released eighteen studio albums and is recognised as one of Wales’ best-known recording artists. She cites Tina Turner and Janis Joplin as her greatest influences. With her career-defining 1983 single Total Eclipse of the Heart, Tyler became the first and only Welsh artist to score a no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She was also the only female soloist to score a UK no. 1 that year. The song features on her Grammy-nominated album, Faster Than the Speed of Night. In the 80s, Tyler recorded several songs for blockbuster movie soundtracks, including Holding Out for a Hero - From "Footloose" Soundtrack and the Grammy-nominated Here She Comes - From "Metropolis" Soundtrack. In 2013, Tyler represented the UK at Eurovision with Believe in Me from her critically acclaimed album Rocks and Honey. She recently celebrated her 50th year as a seasoned international performer with the release of Between the Earth and the Stars, featuring guest vocals from Rod Stewart, Cliff Richard and Status Quo's Francis Rossi. Her latest album The Best Is yet to Come arrived on 26 February 2021, along with its singles When the Lights Go Down and Dreams Are Not Enough. On September 17, Tyler will release The East West Years, a retrospective collection of her recordings from the late 1990s.
