Gilbert O Sullivan is an Irish-English singer-songwriter, best known for his early 1970s hits “Alone Again (Naturally)”, “Clair”, and “Get Down”.

Worldwide he has charted 16 top-40 records, including six No. 1 songs. His most successful recording period was between 1970 and 1980, and he has since recorded several studio albums up to 2015 and has received three Ivor Novello Awards, including “Songwriter of the Year” in 1973.

After forming and joining local bands as a drummer/vocalist, he started writing his own songs, heavily influenced by The Beatles as writers and Bob Dylan as a performer. He had minor hits but it was 1972’s “Alone Again (Naturally)” that sealed his fame, topping the USA charts for six weeks and garnering three Grammy nominations. Soon after, he got his first three British number one hits with Clair, Get Down and LPBack to Front. Gilbert was named Songwriter of the Year at the 18th Ivor Novello Awards, embarked on an 18-city UK tour and a USA tour, performed sold-out concerts, clocked another UK Top 10 hit with “Why Oh Why Oh Why” and in 1974 won a third Ivor Novello award.

Gilbert O Sullivan has continued to record and perform into the 21st century and appeared at Glastonbury Festival in 2008.
