Biography

There are various artists named Fabian:

1) Fabiano Anthony Forte (born February 6, 1943, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania),is an American teen idol of the late 1950s and early 1960s. He rose to national prominence after performing several times on American Bandstand. In total, he charted 11 hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100.
abian was discovered in 1957 by Bob Marcucci and Peter DeAngelis, owners of Chancellor Records. At the time, record producers were looking to the South Philadelphia neighborhoods in search of teenage talents with good looks, and Frankie Avalon, also of South Philly, suggested Fabian as a possibility.

With songwriters Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, Fabian released a series of hit singles for Chancellor Records including “I’m a Man”, “Hound Dog Man”, a #9 hit in the U.S., “Turn Me Loose” (U.S. #9), and his biggest hit, “Tiger”, which reached number 3 in the U.S. charts. Other singles that charted included “String Along”, “About This Thing Called Love” and “This Friendly World”, which reached #12 on the U.S. charts.
His career in music basically ended after he bought out of his contract with Marcucci after signing a seven-year contract with 20th Century Fox. During the payola scandal of the 1960s, Fabian testified before Congress that his recordings had been doctored electonically to significantly improve his voice.

2) Fabian Ordorica of Los Angeles. Churning out heavy apocalyptic electro powerhouses and pop gems alike, Fabian is a multi-talented musician and producer. His songs are heavy, dark, and taking dance music in an entirely new direction. His live show is entirely original productions strung together in a non-stop, melt your face revolution.
