Singer / Songwriter
Worldwide icon of melodic rock Stan Bush is best known for his song "The Touch" featured in Transformers: The Movie (1986) and Boogie Nights (1997). An anthem for Transformers fans around the world, "The Touch" was released for the video game Guitar Hero in 2009, was featured on the NBC comedy Chuck, the Fox animated series American Dad, in two Hasbro Transformers toys, and was voted the #1 Geek anthem of all time! Another of Stan's songs "Til All Are One" is featured in the new Activision video game Transformers: War for Cybertron!
Stan's critically-acclaimed 2007 release In This Life (named "Album of the Year" for 2007 by RockUnited.com) features a new version of "The Touch." Another track from the album, "Til All Are One (Transformers Theme)" has served as the official theme for BotCon, a global gathering of Transformers fans, and is also featured in the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game as well.
In 1997, Stan won an Emmy Award for Best Original Song for his track "Til I Was Loved By You." Another Bush original, "Capture the Dream," was featured at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. His songs are heard in two Jean-Claude Van Damme films: Kickboxer (1989) and Bloodsport (1988), both of which spawned numerous sequels. Stan has co-written with many top songwriters like Jonathan Cain (Journey,) Jim Vallance (Bryan Adams, Aerosmith,) and Paul Stanley of KISS. Stan has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe in his storied career.
Dream the Dream, Stan Bush's 11th studio album, finds the veteran singer/songwriter on top of his game, delivering the kind of powerful melodies and positively-charged lyrics that have earned him a loyal following that spans the globe.
Longtime fans and new listeners alike will be pleased to find Bush's no-nonsense approach to rock n' roll and emotive lyrics ring true in this new audio gem. "We've been working on the new album for a year and a half, and I'm very happy with it," says Bush, "the last album, In This Life, got great reviews and though we had to work really hard, I think we've got ourselves another amazing album. Some of the songs have a 'go for it' message, and some are about love, life and a search for meaning."
Released on September 15, 2010 Dream the Dream quickly garnered high praise and great reviews! A fan-made video for the album's 10th track, "Your Time" became a viral hit on YouTube in 2011. Stan's first digital-only release, "Heat of the Battle," was released for download at the end of 2010.
