Long a fashion figurehead as front man with art rockers Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry subsequently embarked on a successful career as a smooth vocalist which earned him the affectionate title "electric lounge lizard". He formed Roxy Music in 1970, topping the charts with 'Virginia Plain', but by 1973 Ferry was recording solo material, specialising in cover versions of standards like 'These Foolish Things' and his album 'Let's Stick Together' reached number four in the UK Album Charts.

After the relative failure of 1978's 'The Bride Stripped Bare', Ferry re-formed Roxy Music with Phil Manzanera, but reverted to solo work with the number one album 'Boys and Girls' in 1985. He teamed up with another former Roxy Music bandmate Brian Eno for the 'Mamouna' album, but had greater commercial success with the 1993 covers album 'Taxi'. He returned in 1999 with a sentimental collection of 1930s songs entitled 'As Time Goes By' and re-formed Roxy Music yet again in 2001 while continuing to record and perform solo, releasing 'Frantic' in 2002. In 2007 'Dylanesque', an album of Bob Dylan covers, took him back into the UK top ten. Roxy Music performed together for the final time in 2011 for their 40th anniversary world tour.

In 2012 Ferry released 'The Jazz Age' with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, featuring jazz-inspired versions of some of his songs. He lent his sound to the 2013 Baz Luhrmann film 'The Great Gatsby' which he released as a soundtrack album titled 'The Great Gatsby - The Jazz Recordings (A Selection of Yellow Cocktail Music)'. He toured the world and collaborated with Norwegian DJ Todd Terje on his cover of Robert Palmer's 'Johnny and Mary'. His 2014 album 'Avonmore' was supported by a UK tour and a live album, with a performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles in 2017. In 2018 a deluxe edition of Roxy Music's debut album was released to mark their 45th anniversary.
