Enjoy an Exclusive interview with Alex Belfield & Leo Live from Australia:
Sayer began his music career co-writing songs with David Courtney, including “Giving It All Away”, which gave Roger Daltrey of The Who his first solo hit in 1973.
The same year, Sayer began his career as a recording artist under the management guidance of Adam Faith, who signed Sayer to the Chrysalis label in the UK and Warner Bros. Records in the USA.
His debut single “Why Is Everybody Going Home” failed to chart, but he shot to national prominence in the UK with his second single, the plaintive music hall-styled song “The Show Must Go On”, which Sayer memorably performed on British television wearing a pierrot costume and make-up.
The single went quickly to #2 on the UK chart, as did his debut album Silverbird, for which Sayer wrote nine of the eleven tracks; the other two tracks were co-written with Courtney, who co-produced the album with Adam Faith.
