Tal Bachman, singer/songwriter of hit singles such as She’s So High, Strong Enough and Aeroplane, will be performing at The Waverley Hotel in Cumberland on Friday, Dec. 15.
His first album, Tal Bachman, featured what would eventually become its hit single, She’s So High, which reached number one on three different radio formats in Canada.
The song became a multi-format Bachman got his musical break when executives at EMI Music Publishing in New York City heard a demo tape, and aided him in securing a record deal with Columbia Records. The album was released in April 1999 and earned Bachman two Juno awards, and much media exposure, including appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, MTV, and MuchMusic.
In support of the record, Bachman toured as an opening act for Bryan Adams and the Barenaked Ladies, and also toured in his own right.
Bachman’s second album, Staring Down The Sun, was released in Canada August 2004. The single Aeroplane reached number 20 on the Canadian charts. In addition, Aeroplane was used in the 2005 film, American Pie Presents: Band Camp. It was played as an instrumental and during the credits.
Recently, Bachman performed at the closing ceremonies of the 2017 Invictus Games with Randy Bachman and Fred Turner.
