Biography

Eurythmics is a British musical duo composed of singer Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. The duo started their highly successful pair up in 1980. They previously worked together as members of the band The Tourists. But personal and management wrangling within the band made the duo split up and start off what has become Eurythmics.

The duo’s first commercial breakthrough came with their Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) which made the band a huge commercial success in both sides of the Atlantic, fueled by the immense success of the single of the same name with its highly catchy yet dark and powerfully sequenced synth bass line. This success led to further album and single releases that went on to sell over 75 million records worldwide, successful world tours, and garnering numerous awards for the talented duo.
