Singer. Songwriter. Composer. Pianist. Author. These are just a few of the titles that can describe Neil Sedaka. Classically trained at Juilliard, his impressive sixty year career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, a tunesmith for himself and other artists in the 60’s, a superstar in the 70’s, remaining a constant force in writing and performing presently. This is all thanks to the countless songs he has written, performed, and produced that continue to inspire artists and audiences around the world. Introduced to Howard Greenfield by Greenfield’s mother in 1952, he began one of the most prolific songwriting partnerships of the last half-century that sold forty million records between 1959-1963. Sedaka soon recorded chart toppers “The Diary,” “Oh! Carol,” ” Stairway to Heaven,” “Calendar Girl,” “Little Devil,” “Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen,” “Next Door To An Angel,” and “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do”.
With a career spanning over six decades, the National Academy of Popular Music has twice honored him, first with his induction into The Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984, and in 2004 with The Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes outstanding work in furthering the successes of songwriters. He has had a street named after him in his hometown of Brooklyn and was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As Neil celebrates his 80th birthday in March 2019, this songwriting pioneer remains an active performer still playing his celebrated pop hits to sold out audiences worldwide.
