'The album title, Play Nicely And Share, came from something my wife Ariella says to me before I go to a recording session or go on tour but it can be applied to anything. Play nicely, in other words, do the best you can do, and share, let others benefit from what you do.' - Graham Gouldman

Graham was born on May 10th 1946 in Manchester, England. He was given his first guitar at age eleven and started forming and working with local bands at age fifteen. Inspired by The Beatles and encouraged by his parents Betty and Hymie, who often helped him with lyrics and song titles, Graham started writing songs.

He had his first hit as a songwriter in 1965 writing 'For Your Love' for the Yardbirds and also wrote their follow up hits '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 as well as hits with Herman's Hermits 'Listen People' and 'No Milk Today'.

In 1972, along with Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, he formed 10cc. He co-wrote many of their hits including 'Rubber Bullets,' 'I'm Not In Love,' 'The Things We Do For Love' and 'Dreadlock Holiday'. It's the enduring popularity of these tracks and Graham's love of playing songs in their simplest form, acoustically, that led him and fellow 10cc members Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens, into performing some of them - just with vocals and acoustic guitars - at 10cc concerts.

During the 1980s Graham formed 'Wax' with the late Andrew Gold. They enjoyed chart success in Europe with hits 'Right Between the Eyes' and 'Bridge To Your Heart'.

Graham was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of fame in 2014 and received the BMI (Broadcast Music Inc) icon award in 2015.
