Since 1973, Bryan Ferry's career as a solo recording artist has run in parallel to his work with Roxy Music. His first solo album, 'These Foolish Things' (released that same year) would introduce what Ferry has described as his 'ready-mades' - cover versions of recordings by artists whom he admires, which he then interprets in his own style. Like all great singers, Ferry turns the cover version into a form of self-portraiture.

Ferry's fourteenth solo album, 'Avonmore' was hailed by fans and critics alike as a modern classic in the tradition of 'Another Time Another Place' and 'Boys and Girls'. Quintessential Ferry, the musical mood of 'Avonmore' was racing, edgy, brooding, cinematic. The album's mix of emotional urgency and darkling intensity was brilliantly sustained, in both original compositions such as 'Soldier of Fortune' (co-written with Johnny Marr), 'Lost' and 'Loop de Li' as well as bravura interpretations of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send in the Clowns' and 'Johnny and Mary' by Robert Palmer. Thrillingly modern, utterly assured, 'Avonmore' demonstrated all of the qualities that have made Bryan Ferry's writing, arranging and vocal genius so iconic – tirelessly innovative, uniquely enthralling.
