Barry Manilow (born Barry Alan Pincus; Brooklyn, New York; June 17, 1943) is a singer-songwriter, arranger, musician, and producer with a career that has spanned over 50 years. He is best known for a long string of hit recordings such as “Mandy”, “Can’t Smile Without You”, and “Copacabana (At the Copa)”. He has recorded and released 47 Top 40 singles, including 12 that hit number one and 27 of which appeared within the top ten, and has released many multi-platinum albums.

“I’m a New York City boy; born and raised,” he explained. “So when it came time to create a new album, I thought, ‘How about celebrating New York?’ How about saying thanks to the city for giving me my ambition, my sense of humor and my decency?”

Verve Label Group says This Is My Town sets up the album’s musical journey through New York’s five boroughs. So, think of it as running the New York Marathon without having to destroy your shins or hit the wall at Mile 18.
