Born William Martin Joel, Billy Joel is an American pianist, composer, and singer-songwriter. He was born in New York, on May 95h 1949.
Billy was born in a musical family. His father, a pianist, encouraged him to start playing the instrument at a very early age – he was taught by musician Timothy Ford and American pianist Morton Estrin.
The New Yorker musician first decided he wanted to pursue a career in music after he was inspired by The Beatles. The talented pianist finally had a breakthrough, releasing “Piano Man” and becoming the third best-selling solo performer in America and sixth best selling recording artist.
Billy was included into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Long Island Music Hall of Fame throughout his music career.
Joel is a legendary pianist and singer-songwriter. Since he released his hit, ‘Piano Man’, in 1973, he has become the sixth best-selling recording artist ever. He currently performs monthly at the New York’s Madison Square Gardens. These shows sell out, and are grand events.
Each of Billy Joel’s gigs is a sell out – the crowd gathers monthly, and bursts with anticipation. As he takes to the piano, a roar of whoops, claps and yells erupts. He does undertake a musical residency, but manages to carefully avoid repetition. The set list changes monthly, and he speaks freely and spontaneously to the audience between each number.
