Daryl Hall is a modern-day renaissance man, an inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the best-selling duo of all time, the star of his very own award-winning web series-turned-TV staple, Live from Daryl’s House, as well as a successful venue owner with “Daryl’s House,” a restored live music space in Pawling, N.Y.
As 1/2 the duo Daryl Hall & John Oates, they reached the US Top 40 with 29 of their 33 singles charting on Billboard’s Hot 100 between 1974 and 1991. Six of these peaked at number one: “Rich Girl” (1977), “Kiss on My List” (1980), the two 1981 releases “Private Eyes”, and “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” (also a Hot Soul No. 1), “Maneater” (1982) and “Out of Touch” (1984). Their overall 16 US Top Tens also include “She’s Gone”, “Sara Smile”, “You Make My Dreams”, “Family Man”, “Say It Isn’t So”, and “Method of Modern Love”. Seven of their albums have been RIAA-certified platinum and six of them gold.
Outside of his work in Hall & Oates, he has also released five solo albums, including the 1980 progressive rock collaboration with guitarist Robert Fripp titled ‘Sacred Songs’ and the 1986 album ‘Three Hearts in the Happy Ending Machine,’ which provided his best selling single, “Dreamtime,” that peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. He has also collaborated on numerous works by other artists, such as Fripp’s 1979 release ‘Exposure,’ and Dusty Springfield’s 1995 album ‘A Very Fine Love,’ which produced a UK Top 40 hit with “Wherever Would I Be”.
Hall is set to first-ever solo retrospective as a two-disc set and across all digital platforms, on Friday, April 1. Compiled and sequenced by Hall, BeforeAfter features thirty tracks spanning all five of his solo albums, from the 1980’s Robert Fripp-produced Sacred Songs through 2011’s Laughing Down Crying, which was co-produced with longtime Hall compatriot T-Bone Wolk, who sadly passed before the album was released. Additionally, the collection features six never-released performances from the pathbreaking web and television series Live From Daryl’s House, which Hall launched in 2007 with the then-novel idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the internet.” Special guests on the Live From Daryl’s House tracks include Rundgren, Dave Stewart, and Monte Montgomery. Taken as a whole, BeforeAfter draws unexpected and satisfying connections between the esoteric and accessible sides of Daryl Hall’s creativity.
Recent Rock and Roll Hall of fame inductee dodger Todd Rundgren will also appear! Rundgren, as the title of his 1973 album implies is ‘A Wizard, A True Star.’ He is one of the most influential musicians and producers of his time.
