From early beginnings as a folk-based singer/songwriter playing the coffeehouses of Toronto’s in the early ’70s, Cochrane became the driving force in the adventurous rock group Red Rider prior to achieving massive international success (over six million copies sold worldwide and diamond-sales status at home) with breakthrough 1991 album Mad Mad World and its anthemic hit “Life Is A Highway.”
Over the course of a long and illustrious career now spanning more than 40 years, he has continued to create potent new material while cementing his place in the hearts of fans through crowd-pleasing performances and his unwavering work on behalf of humanitarian causes and organizations. An Order of Canada recipient and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee, Cochrane has won eight Juno awards and numerous other industry honors, including the 2013 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award and a Grammy nomination. –
