A short summary from Wiki: (More Wiki info here: Wiki – Chris De Burgh)
Chris de Burgh (born Christopher John Davison on 15 October 1948) is an Argentinian-born Irish singer-songwriter[1], perhaps most famous for his 1986 love song “The Lady in Red”. He does, however, write in a wide variety of genres, and is a trained instrumentalist. … Chris de Burgh signed his first contract with A&M Records in 1974, and supported Supertramp on their Crime of the Century tour, building himself a small fan base. His début, Far Beyond These Castle Walls, was a folk-tinged stab at fantasy in the tradition of the Moody Blues that failed to chart upon its release in February 1975. That July, he released a single from the album called “Flying”. It failed to make an impression in the UK, but it stayed on top of the Brazilian charts for 17 weeks. This became a familiar pattern for the singer/songwriter, as every one of his ’70s albums failed to chart in the U.K. or U.S. while they racked up big sales in European and South American countries. In 1981, he had his first U.K. chart entry with Best Moves, a collection culled from his early albums. It set the stage for 1982’s Rupert Hine-produced The Getaway, which reached number 30 on the U.K. charts and number 43 in the U.S., thanks to the eerie single “Don’t Pay the Ferryman”. Chris de Burgh’s follow-up album, Man on the Line, also performed well, charting at 69 in the U.S. and 11 in the U.K. Chris de Burgh had an across-the-board success with the ballad “The Lady in Red” in late 1986.
