John Oates Biography

Iconic singer/songwriter John Oates was destined to be a musician. Singing from the time he could talk and playing the guitar since the age of 5, his calling in life was never in question. John’s musical pallet was wider than just the top 40 hits, and he was influenced by folk music artists like Child’s Ballads, The Weavers, Joan Baez, Rev. Gary Davis and Dave Von Ronk. In 1966 he wrote and recorded his first single “I Need Your Love” for a label owned by a local music store called the Record Museum. The single received airplay on Philly’s R&B radio stations.

When John first met Daryl Hall it was their mutual love for urban rhythm and blues blended with the more rural roots of Americana music that created their unique sound. Since the formation of their partnership in the early 70′s, Hall & Oates has gone on to record 21 albums. They have sold over 80 million units making them the most successful duo in rock history. They have scored 10 No. 1 records; over 20 top 40 hits and have toured the world for decades. Their involvement in the original “Live Aid” concert and the groundbreaking “We Are The World” charity recording have further cemented them as legendary artists who have stood the test of time with both their music and philanthropic personalities. Hall & Oates' influence on modern pop music has been cited by numerous contemporary bands, like the Gym Class Heroes, the Killers and Hot Chelle Rae.

The influential duo has been recognized by numerous American Music and MTV awards as well as multiple Grammy nominations. In 2005, they were inducted into the American Songwriters Hall of Fame and in May of 2008, they were presented with the prestigious BMI Icon Award for their outstanding career achievement in songwriting. John is also the creator and executive producer for the “7908 the Aspen Songwriters Festival,” which brings together the finest songwriters from around the world to perform at the Historic Wheeler Opera House in Aspen Colorado.

In 1999, John began recording solo albums. Phunk Shui, 1000 Miles of Life, Mississippi Mile and a live album called The Bluesville Sessions round out his first four solo collections. His next project is called, A Good Road to Follow.

When not touring with his solo show or with Daryl Hall, John, his wife Aimee, and their son Tanner divide their time between Nashville and their rescue ranch in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
