Biography

Jim Brickman (born November 20, 1961) is an American composer and pianist. Brickman is known for his compositions, which are classified as new age music.

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Brickman enrolled in the Cleveland Institute of Music taking courses in composition and performance, while taking business classes at Case Western Reserve University. His music career started when he was nineteen, when Jim Henson hired him to write tunes for Sesame Street. He was also hired to write commercial jingles while in college.

Brickman writes a wide variety of music. Besides his piano compositions and love songs, he has also created arrangements of other songs. Several of his albums feature arrangements of children’s music; he has produced two Christmas-themed albums The Gift (1997) and Peace (2003); and his 2005 album Grace concentrates on arrangements of well-known Christian music.

Jim Brickman has also starred in the now-on-DVD PBS specials “My Romance: An Evening with Jim Brickman”, “Love Songs & Lullabies” and “The Disney Songbook.” In 2006, he sponsored his first Jim Brickman Valentine’s Day Cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines which has become an annual event.
