Artist Bio
BERLIN - founded by lead vocalist & songwriter Terri Nunn, bassist John Crawford, and keyboard player/guitarist David Diamond - will forever be recognized as the American progenitor of electro-pop music. Few bands emerging from the era of BERLIN have achieved as far-reaching and long-lasting an impact and, rarely, such a timeless array of musical grooves with LA Weekly stating “Berlin, led by Terri Nunn have proven themselves to be an enduringly engaging live act” and USA Today raving how Nunn still “sounds record-perfect” performing live on their recent North American tour with Culture Club. The band are also the only band to be asked two years in a row to perform at the Cruel World Festival alongside Siouxsie, Billy Idol, Gary Numan & Love and Rockets. In addition, Berlin will be performing at the Corona Capital Festival HERE in Mexico City with The Cure and Pet Shop Boys on November 19.


The Los Angeles-based band made its first national impression with the provocative dance hit "Sex (I'm A...)" HERE  from the platinum-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. “The Metro” HERE“Masquerade” HERE and “No More Words” HERE were also chart toppers, however, it was the unforgettable, intimate, and strikingly beautiful love song, “Take My Breath Away” HERE that took the band to another level. The ballad’s defining role in the Tom Cruise film, Top Gun, helped solidify BERLIN’s everlasting place in American pop-culture. The song was a #1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for “Best Original Song” in 1986. BERLIN’s discography HERE has yielded twelve gold and platinum album awards.


Berlin’s most recent release Strings Attached HERE  features brand new recordings from the band of their classic hits augmented by TWO Philharmonic Orchestras.  Special new versions of the band’s number 1 global smash, “Take My Breath Away” are included as well as 11 other tracks which highlight the career of the iconic 80’s synth band.
