Peter Gabriel

Peter Gabriel is an internationally famous musician and Third World activist, and was the original lead singer ofGenesis. He is not only known for his Eastern and African-influenced music, but also for several ground-breaking musicvideos (most notably 'Sledgehammer', his highest-charting release on both sides of the Atlantic).

Peter Gabriel is an internationally famous musician and Third World activist, and was the original lead singer ofGenesis. He is not only known for his Eastern and African-influenced music, but also for several ground-breaking musicvideos (most notably 'Sledgehammer', his highest-charting release on both sides of the Atlantic). After leaving Genesis, Gabriel began to experiment with various elements of world music as the underpinning for his dense,poetic lyrics. Although he released a series of successful song-oriented albums, Peter Gabriel 1, 2, 3, and 4 (akaCar, Scratch, Melt, and Security), he didn’t really hit a commercial high until 1986 with his now seminalalbum So and its slightly less successful counterpart Us. The last studio album from Gabriel with original materialwas 2002’s Up. In February 2010 he released Scratch My Back, an album consisting of cover songs. He has also composed and recorded soundtracks for films as diverse as Birdy (which contained re-purposed snippets ofhis studio albums to date), Passion: The Last Temptation of Christ, and Rabbit Proof Fence. He also sang the RandyNewman composed title song to Babe: Pig in the City called 'That’ll Do'. He recently contributed to the Wall-Esoundtrack, singing the end title song 'Down to Earth', and composing two other tracks. « hide
