Brian Eno, will be releasing a brand-new album on the the Sheffield-founded, London-based label Warp Records.
[audio:Brian Eno – 03 – Long Way Down.mp3]Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno (born 15 May 1948), commonly known as Brian Eno is an English musician, composer, record producer, music theorist, singer and visual artist, best known as one of the principal innovators of ambient music.
Brian Eno’s professional music career began in London, as a member (1971–1973) of the glam/art rock band Roxy Music, initially not appearing on stage with them at live shows, but operating the mixing desk, processing the band’s sound with a VCS3 synthesizer and tape recorders, and singing backing vocals.
He then progressed to appearing on stage as a performing member of the group, usually flamboyantly costumed. He quit the band on completing the promotion tour for the band’s second album, For Your Pleasure because of disagreements with lead singer Bryan Ferry and boredom with the rock star life.
