Dan Hill & Andy Kim - In Story and Song

Dan Hill is an international music industry legend and one of Canada’s most distinguished, authentic, and multi-talented artists: Grammy-winner, five time-Juno Award winner, Harold Moon Award, and inducted into the venerated Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Award.

Dan is known for his heartfelt sensibility on two massive international hits, "Sometimes When We Touch", recognized as one of the Top 100 Songs of the Century and one of Top 100 Most played songs of all time, and "Can’t We Try", which spent 29 weeks on Billboard charts .His voice is “smooth softness, with a light warmth,” perfectly describing both his original and recent works that fans still gather to enjoy today .

In 1969, Andy co-wrote ‘Sugar Sugar’ - his first Billboard #1 hit. In 1974, Andy wrote a new song called “Rock Me Gently” and absolutely no one wanted to produce it. Andy loved the song, and he wouldn't take no for an answer. He formed his own record company, called !CE, and produced the record on his own. When it was released, “Rock Me Gently” went straight to #1 on the Billboard charts and it remained on the charts for a staggering 4 months.

A true Canadian son, Andy has had 9 top 40 Billboard hits including Baby I Love You. He was recently honoured with the appointment to the Order of Canada. He has been awarded the country’s top industry honours including a Juno award, the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame and a star on Canada’s Walk Of Fame. Andy is a member of Songwriters Hall of Fame, was inducted into Billboard's Hit Parade Hall of Fame. Over his epic career, Andy has sold over 30 million records, and has over half a billion streams on Spotify and YouTube.

Andy Kim – "I’m excited to share the stage with my dear friend, the multi-talented Dan Hill."
