The Art Of Music Legend Bernie Taupin

Who has not in some way been touched by the musical poetry of Bernie Taupin.
Through countless chart toppers, his lyrics have spoken directly to the hearts and
inspired the spirits of millions around the world (Tiny Dancer, Candle in the Wind
and Bennie And The Jets to name just a few). But his profound artistic expression
does not end where his words leave off. For years Bernie Taupin has extended his
art beyond his lyrics and found it's way onto the canvas. Through painting Bernie
has expanded his artistic horizons into frontiers where words have given way to
his broad palette of color, where timing and cadence once served, now texture
and the gesture of his brush bring his vision into a new dimension.
Limelight Agency is very excited and honored to be the first to present the art of
Bernie Taupin to the gallery world, and it's a privilege we do not take take lightly.
Over the years we have been given the opportunity to work with nearly every
celebrity who has picked up a brush, but star appeal alone has never been our
standard, we are artist agents and as such our primary consideration must be
that the art stands on it's own. In the case of Bernie we saw an artist who has
brought to painting the same distinct intuition for what lives at the core of
everyone's emotional being, and he has been able to convey it as a painter
as masterfully as he's done through song for decades.
With great pride and privilege we present the art of Bernie Taupin

'The Union' is the highly anticipated collaboration between two musical legends -- Sir Elton John and Leon Russell. This album marks the first time these iconic artists have worked together since 1970.

Produced by Oscar and Grammy winning producer T Bone Burnett, who won the 2010 Grammy for producing 'Raising Sand' with Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, 'The Union' features songs written by John and his lifelong lyricist Bernie Taupin, as well as in combination with the extraordinary talents of Russell and Burnett.

Recorded live in the studio with John and Russell on dueling pianos, the album features a variety of musical genres from R&B, soul, gospel, country, pop and rock. Icons Neil Young and Brian Wilson provide guest vocals on the 16-track record along with legendary R&B organist Booker T. Jones, steel guitarist Robert Randolph and a 10-piece gospel choir.

Russell first met John in 1970 when he attended John's first ever U.S. show at the famous Troubadour in Los Angeles. The meeting heralded the beginning of a long friendship and a mutual appreciation between the two artists. "In the late '60s and early '70s, the one piano player and vocalist who influenced me more than anybody else was Leon Russell," John said. "He was my idol." The pair went on to tour together shortly thereafter at New York's Fillmore East and to this day have held such high admiration for each other's work.

After years of being out of touch, John listened to Russell's music while on safari in Africa last summer and was inspired to reconnect with his idol. "Elton called to ask if I would do a duet album with him," Russell said. "I'm very happy that he chose me to do this."

The monumental career of international singer/songwriter and performer Sir Elton John has spanned more than three decades. He is the one of the top-selling solo artists of all time with 35 gold and 25 platinum albums and more than 250 million records sold worldwide. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has awarded John multiple Grammys, including the Grammy Legend Award.

Russell has performed his gospel-infused southern boogie piano rock, blues and country music for over 50 years. This legendary and Grammy award winning musician and songwriter has topped music charts, led the famous Joe Cocker's 'Mad Dogs & Englishmen' tour, performed with George Harrison and Friends at the 'Concert for Bangladesh' and in 2006 was awarded a lifetime achievement award by the Bare Bones International Film Festival.

'The Union' is a unique collaboration of two of the most talented artists in the music business. Combining forces and fusing diverse talents, John and Russell along with Burnett have produced an extraordinary masterpiece.
