Biography

Philip Oakey (aka Phil Oakey, born 2 October 1955, in Hinckley, Leicester, England), is a singer best-known as the frontman and co-founder of the popular synthpop band, The Human League. He also collaborated with record producer Giorgio Moroder on the album Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder which included the hit single “Together in Electric Dreams”.

He was educated at King Edward VII School in Sheffield.

In the early 1980s, Oakey (along with the rest of the group) had a highly distinctive visual style. He was particularly famous for his asymmetrical haircut, long on one side and cropped short on the other. His vocal skills are known by its characteristic of nearly lacking any vibrato.
