Damon Albarn

Bio

Damon Albarn (born 23 March 1968) is an English musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer from Whitechapel, London, England. He is best known as the lead singer of the band Blur. He, along with Tank Girl creator Jamie Hewlett, formed the virtual band Gorillaz, as part of which he is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. One of his projects is the supergroup The Good, The Bad & The Queen, where he plays the keyboard and sings. Other members of the band are Paul Simonon (bass, The Clash), Simon Tong (guitar, The Verve) and Tony Allen (drums, percussion). Their album (released in early 2007) is produced by DJ Danger Mouse (producer of Gorillaz album "Demon Days", member of Gnarls Barkley). The Marvelous Dream Songfacts says that another of his projects is Dr Dee, an opera created by Albarn with theatre director Rufus Norris. The work is based on the life of Dr. John Dee (1527-1608), an Elizabethan courtier who was also a mathematician, alchemist, astrologer, spiritualist, philosopher and spy. The opera’s debut performance was at the Palace Theatre, Manchester in July 2011, as part of the 2011 Manchester International Festival. The soundtrack was released on May 8, 2012 by Virgin.

Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots

Damon Albarn was the last person planning a Damon Albarn solo album. And yet, after wildly successful runs with Blur, Gorillaz and a host of other one-off projects that included a monkey opera, here he is with Everyday Robots, his first ever solo album. Overseen by producer and XL label boss Richard Russell, Everyday is an admittedly personal effort by the 46-year-old. Confronting a variety of mind-consuming ideals, from revisiting his childhood to maintaining a long-term relationship to observing the numbing effect modern technology has on us, Albarn is the most...Read More
