Bryan Ferry, CBE (born 26 September 1945) is an English singer-songwriter and musician.

Ferry came to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist and principal songwriter with the art rock band Roxy Music, which released three number one albums and ten singles entering the top ten charts in the United Kingdom during the 1970s and the 1980s, including "Virginia Plain", "Street Life", "Love is the Drug", "Dance Away", "Angel Eyes", "Over You", "Oh Yeah", "Jealous Guy", and "More Than This". Ferry began his solo career in 1973, while still a member of Roxy Music, which he continues to the present day. His solo hits include "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall", "Let's Stick Together", "This Is Tomorrow", "Slave to Love" and "Don't Stop the Dance".

As well as being a prolific songwriter himself, Ferry has also been notable for his many cover versions of other artists' songs and for his re-working of standards, especially from the Great American Songbook, in albums such as These Foolish Things (1973), Another Time, Another Place (1974) and As Time Goes By (1999). When his sales as a solo artist and as a member of Roxy Music are combined, Ferry has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
