Sting

Bio

Composer, singer, author, actor, and activist, Sting has earned 16 Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, three Oscar nominations, and has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist. He is a member of both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and received the Kennedy Center Honors in December, 2014. Sting has appeared in more than 15 films and authored two books, including the New York Times best-selling memoir, Broken Music. His fourteenth solo album is inspired by the story of The Last Ship, his acclaimed Broadway musical for which he composed the music and lyrics and received a Tony Award® nomination for Best Original Score. The Last Ship, named Best Musical of 2014 by USA Today, draws upon his memories of the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the North East of England. His support for human rights organizations such as the Rainforest Fund, co-founded with his wife Trudie Styler in 1989, mirrors his art in its universal outreach. www.sting.com.
