Born in Manchester, England, Graham Gouldman began to play the guitar when he was 11 years old, and by the age of 15 he was forming and working with local bands. Inspired by The Beatles and encouraged by his parents, his dad Hymie often helped him with lyrics, he started writing songs. In 1964, he met Harvey Lisberg who became his manager. Harvey also managed Herman's Hermits for whom Graham would later write "Listen People" and "No Milk Today." Gouldman had his first hit as a songwriter in 1965, writing "For Your Love" for The Yardbirds, for whom he also wrote "Heart Full of Soul" and "Evil Hearted You." In the same year, The Hollies recorded his song "Look Through Any Window," followed by "Bus Stop" in 1966. In 1972, along with Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, he formed the band 10cc. He co-wrote many of their hits including "Rubber Bullets," "I'm Not In Love" and "The Things We Do For Love." During the 1980's, Gouldman formed the band Wax with the late Andrew Gold. They enjoyed chart success in Europe with the hits "Right Between The Eyes" and "Bridge To Your Heart." Gouldman has also written songs for Cher, Jeff Beck and Wayne Fontana. In 2012, he released his third solo album, Love and Work. Gouldman still tours with his version of 10cc and continues to write.
