Spanning a career of five decades, Harry Vanda and George Young re-wrote Australian music history, writing and producing some of this countries biggest hits. From their work in The Easybeats and their iconic Aussie hit, ‘Friday On My Mind’ to their work with Stevie Wright and his hits with ‘Evie’ and ‘Guitar band’. They worked with John Young (adding a ‘Paul’) to his name and gave us ‘Yesterday’s Hero’, ‘I Hate The Music’ and his biggest hit, ‘Love Is In The Air’.
Vanda and Young songs have been recorded by international artists like Rod Stewart, Suzi Quatro, Bay City Rollers, Grace Jones, Tina Charles, Al Wilson and Ricky Martin. Australian legends who have also recorded Vanda & Young songs include Johnny O’Keefe, John Farnham, The Seekers, Little River Band, The Saints, Rose Tattoo, Rick Springfield and The Living End.
