Biography

Woodbridge, Suffolk (1948 – present)

Brian Eno (born Brian Peter George Eno 15th May 1948 in Woodbridge, Suffolk - later adding St John le Baptiste de la Salle to his name) is a British self proclaimed ‘non-musician’, who has made contributions to the music community as an instrumentalist, composer, record producer, music theorist and singer. He’s commonly regarded as the father of music, although he has worked in many genres and fields of music throughout his career.

Eno first came to prominence as the keyboard and synthesizer player and general sonic wizard in the and band Roxy Music. After leaving Roxy Music, Eno recorded four highly idiosyncratic and original albums, later turning to more abstract sound-scapes on subsequent albums such as 1975’s Discreet Music and 1978’s Ambient 1: Music for Airports. Since then, he has released dozens of albums (many in collaboration with like-minded musicians, such as Harold Budd and Robert Fripp) which demonstrate his unique approach to music. He has, however, occasionally returned to the idioms which were more prominent in his earliest work, including a collaboration with former Velvet Underground member John Cale.

His production credits include some of the most respected albums by Devo, Talking Heads, U2, Laurie Anderson, Paul Simon and Coldplay.
