The man that brought The Lady In Red to the world is back with his album Moonfleet. Chris De Burgh (aka Christopher Davidson) first began performing in the 1960s at his grandfather's 12th-century hotel Bargy Castle. In 1971 Chris moved to London to pursue his music career and in 1974 he signed a deal with A&M Records and supported Supertramp on their Crime Of The Century tour. It was during this time that he changed his stage name to Chris De Burgh and not long after in 1975 that he released his first album Far Beyond These Castle Walls. His first hit single Flying remained at number one in Brazil for 17 weeks selling over half a million records. In 1980 Chris's album Eastern Wind became one of the biggest-selling albums of all time in Norway. In 1984 Chris released his eighth album Man On The Line, which included one of his most famous songs High On Emotion, which reached number one in 10 European countries with Man On The Line becoming a top 30 album in the UK, the US and 20 other countries. As if that wasn't enough in 1986 he released the album Into The Light, which included the ever-popular song The Lady In Red. It became a worldwide hit receiving gold and platinum albums in several different countries reaching number one in the UK and 24 other countries worldwide and number three in the US. De Burgh's classics are still requested at his gigs and hopefully he'll be squeezing some in between songs from his Moonfleet album.
