About Billy Joel

New York’s quintessential son ranks as one of the most popular recording artists and

respected entertainers in history. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling

recording artist and the fourth-best-selling solo artist with over 160 million records sold

worldwide. His 1985 compilation album, Greatest Hits Vol. 1 & 2, is one of the best-selling

albums in the United States.

Joel’s songs have acted as personal and cultural touchstones for millions of people across five

decades. Joel’s string of 33 Top 40 hits, all of which Joel has written himself, began with

1973’s autobiographical ‘Piano Man,’ written while Joel was playing in a Los Angeles lounge.

In 2016, the Library of Congress selected ‘Piano Man’ for preservation in the National

Recording Registry for its ‘cultural, historic and artistic significance.’ The hits have continued

for almost five decades, with three of Joel’s Top 40 songs - ‘It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me,’ ‘Tell

Her About It’

and ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ - peaking at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts and 23

GRAMMY nominations awarded to Joel since he signed his first recording contract in 1972.

Joel is one of the most engaging and best-selling live performers of our time, with songs like

‘Uptown Girl,’ ‘Just The Way You Are,’ ‘The Longest Time’ and ‘Vienna’ - amongst countless

others. In January 2014, Joel began Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise that

continues to this day, performing one show at The Garden each month – Billboard Magazine

calling it “The Greatest Arena Run in History.” More than 45 years after his The Garden debut,

his upcoming concert will mark Joel’s 142nd lifetime performance at the venue with all

preceding shows completely selling out.

The long list of accolades awarded to Joel across his career is testament to the revere given to

him by fans, critics and fellow musicians alike. Joel was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of

Fame by his idol Ray Charles in 1999. Joel has received the RIAA’s Diamond Award twice for

Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II and The Stranger, presented for albums that have sold

over 10 million copies. He is the recipient of six GRAMMY® Awards, including the prestigious

GRAMMY Legend Award. Joel has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, including

the prestigious Johnny Mercer Award; he was inducted by Barack and Michelle Obama at the

36th Annual Kennedy Center Honor; and he received a TONY AWARD for "Movin' Out," a

Broadway musical based on Joel’s music.

As a humanitarian, The Joel Foundation has made and pledged over $7MM in charitable

donations with a focus on music education and humanitarian aid. In addition to supporting vital

global relief efforts, The Joel Foundation provides grants to organizations throughout New York

City and Long Island leveraging the power of music to enhance the lives of people of every

age. Recently, The Joel Foundation announced the continuation of its long-term investment in

Long Island’s only public arts high school, Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA),

serving student-artists in a pre-conservatory model with a focus on career and technical
