Bryan Ferry CBE (born 26 September 1945 in Washington, County Durham, England) is an English singer and songwriter. His voice has been described as an "elegant, seductive croon". He also established a distinctive image and sartorial style; according to The Independent, Ferry and his contemporary David Bowie influenced a generation with both their music and their appearance.

Ferry came to prominence as the lead vocalist and principal songwriter with the glam art rock band Roxy Music, achieving three number one albums and ten top ten singles in the UK between 1972 and 1982. Their singles included "Virginia Plain", "Street Life", "Love is the Drug", "Dance Away", "Angel Eyes", "Over You", "Oh Yeah", "Jealous Guy" and "More Than This". Ferry began his solo career in 1973. His solo hits included "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall", "Let's Stick Together" and "This Is Tomorrow". After disbanding Roxy Music, Ferry concentrated on his solo career, releasing further singles such as "Slave to Love" and "Don't Stop the Dance".

As well as being a prolific songwriter himself, Ferry has also gained attention for his many cover versions of other artists' songs and for his re-working of standards, especially from the Great American Songbook, in albums such as These Foolish Things (1973), Another Time, Another Place (1974) and As Time Goes By (1999). When his sales as a solo artist and as a member of Roxy Music are combined, Ferry has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
