AUDIENCE Network‘s multiple series of original and exclusive performances gives music fans an intimate view of music’s most influential artists today. The network collaborates directly with musicians to create a unique show from their perspective.
Marx’s career has had plenty of highlights. His self-titled debut went to #8 and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart topping “Hold on to the Nights.” The follow-up, Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles in “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting.” When both Rush Street and Paid Vacation went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history. Richard Marx has sold more than 30 million albums, owns 26 Top 20 singles and 17 Top 10s.
In the last few years, Marx has also found time to write for other artists, most recently Keith Urban (with whom he scored Urban’s #1 smash “Long Hot Summer”), Jennifer Nettles, Sara Bareilles and Vince Gill. Across all formats, he has scored an amazing total of 14 #1 singles, both as a performer and a songwriter/producer, making him a true multi-talented threat who continues to challenge himself and his fans. In 2014, Marx released his latest album, Beautiful Goodbye, his first studio album in 10 years. He holds the honor of being one of a handful of artists who has had a number one hit in each of the past four decades.
