Sting is a composer, singer, author, actor and activist who has won universal acclaim in all of these roles yet he continues to defy easy labeling.

Born in Newcastle, England, Sting moved to London in 1977 and formed the rock band, The Police, with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band released five albums, earned six Grammy awards, and in 2003 was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Since 1985, Sting has released 12 solo albums. His latest, "Symphonicities," is the companion CD to his celebrated Symphonicity world tour, featuring Sting performing his greatest hits re-imagined for symphonic arrangement with a symphony orchestra and band. As one of the world's most distinctive and highly respected performers, he has sold nearly 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist and has earned an additional 10 Grammy awards, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and three Oscar nominations.

Also an accomplished author, Sting published a memoir entitled "Broken Music" in 2003, which spent 13 weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list. He most recently released "Lyrics," a comprehensive collection of lyrics and personal commentary, also featuring photographs from throughout his career.
