Bryan Ferry, CBE has been described as ‘elegant and seductive’. He also established a distinctive image and sartorial style; according to The Independent, in common with his contemporary the late David Bowie, he influenced a generation with both music and appearance.

As well as being a prolific songwriter himself, Ferry has also gained attention for his many cover versions of other artists’ songs and for his re-working of standards, especially from the Great American Songbook, in albums such as ‘These Foolish Things’ (1973), ‘Another time, Another Place (1974) and ‘As Time Goes By’ (1999).
