Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An Oscar- and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, Stephen Bishop enjoyed success on the pop charts in the mid-1970s and 1980s with such wistful romantic ballads as "On and On," "Save it for a Rainy Day" and "It Might Be You," while also contributing numerous songs to feature films like "The China Syndrome" (1979), "Tootsie" (1982) and "White Nights" (1985). His career began as a songwriter, penning material for Barbra Streisand and Art Garfunkel, which led to a recording contract and the Grammy-nominated Careless (1976), which yielded two Top 10 hits, including "On and On." Bishop's clever, heartfelt lyrics also caught the attention of Hollywood filmmakers, who tapped him to write songs for numerous features. Two of his songs - "It Might Be You" and "Separate Lives" - were nominated for Best Song Academy Awards, which prompted Bishop to shift his focus from his solo albums to soundtracks. In the 1990s, Bishop returned to pop with several independent record releases while still reaping significant rewards from the inclusion of his early hits in films and on television. Though stardom largely eluded Bishop over the course of his four-decade career, his talent as a tunesmith produced some of the most...
