Career

Hart began his career in a big way, before he was 20 years old he had sung with Tom Jones and recorded with Paul Anka, Eric Clapton, and Billy Joel before signing his own record deal. In 1983 his debut album First Offense was released, and Hart reached the Billboard Top 10 with "Sunglasses At Night" and "It Ain't Enough". His followup, 1984's Boy In The Box featured Hart's final Top 10 single, "Never Surrender". 1986's Fields of Fire featured his final two Top 40 singles (and included "Blind Faith") but his commercial success in the US was fading. However his fortunes in his native Canada were still going well, only one of his final five studio albums even charted in America but reached the top 50 in Canada. He now writes songs for his wife, Canadian singer Julie Masse (with whom he has four children) and other artists such as Celine Dion. In 2019, Hart's latest album, Dreaming Time Again, was released and he was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
