Burton Cummings Background
Burton Cummings was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His fellow
bandmates from The Guess Who were also from Winnipeg. The Guess Who was one of the most notable bands in Canada at the time.
Cummings and bandmate Randy Bachman co-wrote a lot of their hit songs. After leaving the Guess Who in 1975, Burton Cummings
provided back-up vocals on Eric Carmen's second solo LP, Boats Against the Current, including the tune, She Did It. Cummings'
Stand Tall was perhaps his greatest American solo hit, but he also had great success with his singles I'm Scared, Break it
to Them Gently, as well as Fine State of Affairs. Cummings relocated to California in the late 1970s and did some composing
and singing for films. In 1980, he even starred with Don Johnson in the feature film Melanie, earning him the Genie Award
for Best Original Song along with praise for his acting ability. Cummings along with Randy Bachman play occasional shows at
The Bachman-Cummings Band featuring The Carpet Frogs, a band from Toronto, and as a solo performer, Cummings makes sporadic
appearances as a solo act at various Canadian casinos. Through the '80s and '90s, Burton continued to tour. He even joined
the Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr's All Starr Band. He also launched his much-admired solo concert series, featuring the singer
alone onstage unraveling stories behind his best-known songs and sharing personal milestones from his career. Never content
to rest on his remarkable accomplishments, Burton Cummings continues to compose, record and perform. "Not all artists are
lucky enough to have that kind of staying power," he admits. "It's pretty amazing." An accomplished artist, performer and
professional, Cummings possesses an extraordinary gift for entertaining, never failing to please audiences from across the
United States and Canada.
