A rock ’n’ roll legend, Burton Cummings’musical legacy has been solidified by his remarkable list of achievements. A multiple Juno Award winner for his music written with rock band The Guess Who as well as a solo artist, Cummings is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame.

With The Guess Who, Cummings scored an unprecedented string of international hit singles, including These Eyes, Laughing, No Time, American Woman, Share The Land, and Hang On To Your Life, to name only a few. The Guess Who was the first Canadian group to reach #1 on the Billboard music charts, and the first to earn a platinum album for sales of over 1 million copies in the US.

In 1976 he went solo and continued his winning streak with a gold record for his debut solo single Stand Tall, and followed that with more than a dozen hit singles and albums including I'm Scared, My Own Way To Rock, I Will Play a Rhapsody, and Timeless Love. His 1978 album Dream of a Child became the first quadruple platinum-selling album by a Canadian artist. Cummings is a recipient of the Order of Canada, the Order of Manitoba, the Governor-General's Performance Arts Award, and several Broadcast Music Industry awards for over 1 million airplays of his songs.
