"Brian Eno" is self proclaimed as a ‘non-musician’, but has probably had more influence on and made more contributions to the music community than almost anyone in the history of ever.

"Brian Eno" is as an "instrumentalist", a "composer", a "record producer", a "music theorist" and "vocalist", one of his greatest credits is as "the Father of Ambient music", although he has worked in many other genres and fields of music throughout his musical career.

"Brian Eno" has probably had a hand in changing the entire map of the musical world and has had some kind of influence on everything from Dub Step, to Techno, to Rock to Dub.


"Brian Eno", full name;- Brian Peter George Eno, born 15th May 1948 in Woodbridge, Suffolk England, at a later time he added "St John le Baptiste de la Salle to his name".

Eno first came to public attention as the keyboardist for the Glam Rock and art rock outfit Roxy Music, a band that is under-appreciated by modern standards, and should be seen as a classic influence on all sorts of music.

Check out this clip below, but listen closely, there's more going on if you scratch the surface of the track, if you listen carefully you'll be able to hear elements of what went of to form Industrial, Gothic and even Trance, amongst others;-

In his days after Roxy Music, "Eno"" recorded four highly original Rock albums, after which he turned to more abstract sound-scapes, such as the 1975 album "Discreet Music" and the 1978 album "Ambient 1: Music for Airports". Since those days, he has released countless albums, many as collaboration pieces of work with like-minded musicians, for example, Harold Budd and Robert Fripp, these albums demonstrate his unique approach to music, he's even collaborated with former member of The Velvet Underground "John Cale".

His production credits include some of the most huge, well known and respected artists, such as Devo, Talking Heads, U2, "Laurie Anderson", Paul Simon and even "Coldplay".
