With a career spanning four decades, and a voice instantly identifiable the world over, Bonnie is the international first lady of rock. Born in Skewen, Neath, South Wales, Tyler grew up listening to, and being influenced by, the legendary female artists of the day, especially Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.
Bonnie’s breakthrough hit was her second ever single “Lost In France” which climbed to No.9 in the UK charts. The track was then released in Europe and became a huge hit, staying in the Top Ten in Germany for over six months. “It’s A Heartache”, Bonnie’s next single was her first hit in the USA, reaching No. 3 in the Billboard chart, and was a massive hit all over the world.
The 80’s saw even greater success. A burgeoning collaboration with epic rock pioneer Jim Steinman garnered both Grammy Nomination and phenomenal international recognition with the album “Faster Than The Speed Of Night”, and multi-platinum selling power ballad “Total Eclipse Of The Heart”. Continuing their working relationship – “Holding Out For A Hero”, from the soundtrack to the film “Footloose”, proved similarly popular and has also featured in several other movies since including the Shrek series.
In the 90’s Tyler worked with “the German Simon Cowell” writer/producer Deiter Bohlen giving rise to albums including the monster German hit “Bitterblue”.
