Biography

Graham Coxon, best known for his time in Blur (which he left in 2002 and re-united with in 2009), is a singer-guitarist whose sound is based in and

His first solo album,’The Sky Is Too High’, was released in 1998 and has a very muted, uncommercial sound. ‘TSITH’ was followed by ‘The Golden D’ which features two covers of the band Mission of Burma and is considerably worse than the last. The next album to come was ‘Crow Sit on Blood Tree’, which has some of his most tracks to date on, and is very lo-fi. Fourth album ‘The Kiss of Morning’ shows Graham developing as an artist in his own right and the songs take on a more fleshed out and accomplished form. However, it was not until the release of ‘Freakin’ Out’ in 2004 that Coxon had a solo mainstream hit. ‘Happiness In Magazines’, Graham’s fifth album, is largely considered to be his most accessible and complete work, featuring frantic, slick guitar-pop of the highest order.

In 2006 Graham Coxon released his sixth solo album, ‘Love Travels At Illegal Speeds’, preceeded by the UK Top 20 single ‘Standing On My Own Again’. ‘Love Travels at Illegal Speeds’ shows Coxon branching out to try his hand at some new sounds as well as tightening the formula that is his hallmark. The album was released in two formats, with a DVD containing interviews and live tracks as an optional extra.

It marks Coxon’s first album away from his now-defunct indie label ‘Transcopic’. Coxon also played guitar on Peter Doherty’s 2009 solo album Grace / Wastelands.
