There’s something about Rick Springfield that is and always has been very real. His songs about love and loss, greed and envy, elation and heartbreak spoke to that part of human nature that hasn’t changed in 3,000 years.  They still do.

In 1981 after years of struggle, the stars perfectly aligned and Rick Springfield found himself sitting on top of the world.  In the midst of recording what would become the quintessential pop/rock album Working Class Dog, Rick was cast to the play the young, eligible Dr. Noah Drake on the popular daytime drama “General Hospital.”  That same year, MTV debuted and changed the dynamic of the music industry forever.  Rick skyrocketed to the top of Billboard’s charts with “Jessie’s Girl” and “I’ve Done Everything For You,”.  The following year, he won a Grammy for “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.”

To date, Rick Springfield has sold over 19 million records with a whopping 17 top-40 hits.  He has performed for millions of devoted fans over the last three decades and continues to play over 100 shows a year. Attracting new fans wherever he goes with his unique brand of audience interaction, unstoppable energy, and unforgettable songs that have become part of the soundtrack to people’s lives.

    On July 29, 2008, Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Rick Springfield released Venus In Overdrive on New Door Records/UMe. The album is Rick’s first full-length new studio work of original material since the 2003 critically acclaimed shock/denial/anger/acceptance. More upbeat and fun than the dark and introspective shock/denial/anger/acceptance, Venus In Overdrive marks a return to Rick’s pop/rock roots. Venus In Overdrive is simultaneously classic and current -- and definitely the music fans have loved since Rick’s distinctive canine companion Lethal Ron first graced the cover of his classic album Working Class Dog.
