Rod Stewart Biography

Sir Rod Stewart CBE is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with more than 250 million albums and singles sold worldwide during a stellar career that includes hits in all genres of popular music from Rock, Folk, R&B and even the American Standards. 

This versatility has made him one of the few stars to enjoy chart-topping albums throughout every decade of his career, now spanning over fifty years. 

He's been lauded as the finest singer of his generation; he's written several songs that turned into modern standards; earned countless of the industry’s highest awards, among them, two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the ASCAP Founders Award for songwriting, New York Times bestselling author, Grammy™ Living Legend, and in 2016 he officially became ‘Sir Rod Stewart’ after being knighted at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and charity.

Born in North London with Scottish Celtic roots, Sir Rod Stewart has one of the most distinctive voices in music. That voice was first heard in the early 60’s with Long John Baldry, Steampacket and Shotgun Express, as well as in his seminal work with Jeff Beck and the legendary rock band The Faces.

He went on to have a stellar solo career recording a string of some of the biggest hits in music including ‘Maggie May’, ‘Forever Young’, ‘Rhythm of My Heart’, ‘Tonight’s the Night, ‘I Don’t Want To Talk About It’ and ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy’.

The 2000’s saw Sir Rod record five acclaimed volumes of his ‘Great American Songbook’ series pushing his career into unchartered territory and is the biggest selling on-going series of new music recordings in history.

Sir Rod Stewart’s rekindled love of songwriting continued with the release of his 31st studio album, THE TEARS OF HERCULES in 2021. The album marked Stewart’s fourth new album of original songs since 2013 when he reconnected with his songwriting muse to record Time, the chart-topping album which entered the Top 10 in the US and ten countries worldwide, including #1 in the U.K., where it’s been certified platinum double-platinum.

In addition, Sir Rod also recently revisited some of his greatest hits with ‘You’re in My Heart: Rod Stewart with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’. A timeless record, the album retains the power, soul and passion of the originals and spent three weeks at the top of the charts making it Sir Rod’s tenth Number One album; a milestone achievement in an already impressive career.

One of the most loved entertainers worldwide, Sir Rod kicked off one of the biggest tours of his career in 2022, as well as the 11th year of his hit Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace. His sell out tour will continue worldwide through 2023 and is receiving rave reviews with the Telegraph commenting, “while so many of his contemporaries have announced retirements, Sir Rod keeps rocking on” and USA Today declaring him “a veritable one-man stroll through pop-music history.
