When a music star is named by Time magazine amongst the world’s most influential, has five Grammies to his name and is second only to Elvis Presley in the speed of having six number ones in the top 100 best selling records, there can be no doubt that you are dealing with a truly major talent. This then is the world of Bruno Mars, a man who was the product of a musical family from Honolulu and has delighted in making music in the majority of his life since being born as Peter Gene Hernandez in 1985.
Coming from a fascinating mix of musical and cultural traditions Bruno had many influences in his early life as a musician. Bruno was the son of a father who combined Puerto Rican and Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry and a mother from the Philippines with a mixture of Filipino and Spanish ancestry his mother sang and danced, his father played Little Richard type music and what’s more his uncle did impressions of Elvis, encouraging his nephew to sing on stage at the age of three. It is hardly surprising that on graduating from high school he headed for Los Angeles and a career in music.
It was a career that was to blossom in a number of ways. It has been said of many great people in different spheres of life that they stand on the shoulders of giants and there were many giant influences in Bruno’s road to immense success. The first, deriving a great deal from his uncle, was the great Elvis Presley Bruno really admired the effect that Presley had on audiences. Other major influences included Michael Jackson, Jerry Lee Lewis and Frankie Lymon.
(Incidentally many people are curious to know how the name Bruno Mars came about. He has stated in interviews that the name Bruno derived from a rather chubby wrestler who, according to his father, he resembled as a baby and, rather cheekily, that Mars was because a lot of girls thought him out of this world!”)
Bruno is a truly remarkable and highly talented young man who has so many strengths in what he is able to do and the kind of music that he is able to perform. He is both a singer and a songwriter and plays a wide variety of musical instruments including guitar, piano, keyboards drums, percussion and harmonica. He is a successful record producer and a choreographer.
Moreover his music crosses over a wide number of musical genres including R&B, funk, pop and soul. All this has amounted to Bruno selling well over 100 million albums and singles throughout the world. Currently embarking on a world tour, there is no doubt that any ticket for one of his shows will soon become a very hot ticket indeed.
