About Albert Hammond

Albert Hammond is best remembered by casual listeners for his 1972 hit "It Never Rains in Southern California," an international success that peaked at number five on the U.S. singles chart. However, folks who read songwriting credits known he's one of the most successful tunesmiths of the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, penning songs for the Hollies, Tina Turner, Leo Sayer, Chicago, Julio Iglesias & Willie Nelson, and many more. Hammond is a master of soft rock, delivering songs with affecting melodies and lyrics that tell relatable stories about love and heartache, and he's also fluent in Spanish and recorded a number of albums in that tongue. In the 2000s, Hammond revived his recording career with releases like 2005's Revolution of the Heart and 2016's In Symphony, and at the age of 80, he delivered one of his most personal and outspoken releases with 2024's Body of Work.
