He's a national treasure, with an independent, creative sound that reflects the true American spirit! Burt's musical genius as a composer/ arranger/performer is wide-reaching. He is recognized as one of the greatest songwriters in pop history. Besides his best-known material, for Dionne Warwick's long run of soul hits ("Walk on By," "I Say a Little Prayer"), there are other important, career-defining records made with the likes of Dusty Springfield, Herb Alpert, Jackie DeShannon and B.J. Thomas. He continues to dazzle; this year he was honored with his eighth Grammy Award, proving his music is still relevant and a joy to hear.
