Peter Brian Gabriel born 13 February is an English singer, songwriter, musician, record producer and activist. He rose to fame as the original lead singer of the progressive rock band Genesis. His album, So , is his best-selling release and is certified triple platinum in the UK and five times platinum in the U. Gabriel has been a champion of world music for much of his career.

He has also pioneered digital distribution methods for music, co-founding OD2 , one of the first online music download services. In , he released the anti- apartheid single " Biko ". At age 10, he purchased a floor tom-tom. Gabriel remarked of his early influences, " Hymns played quite a large part. They were the closest I came to soul music before I discovered soul music.

There are certain hymns that you can scream your lungs out on, and I used to love that. It was great when you used to get the old shivers down the back. Around this time, an aunt gave him money for professional singing lessons, but he used it to buy the Beatles ' first album Please Please Me.

This was followed by a holiday band called the Spoken Word. Banks had started at Charterhouse at the same time as Gabriel; the two were uninterested in school activities but bonded over music and started to write songs.

At a final concert before they split, Gabriel, dressed in a kaftan and beads, showered the audience with petals he had picked from neighbouring gardens.

In , after Garden Wall had disbanded, Gabriel, Banks, and Stewart were invited by fellow pupils Anthony Phillips and Mike Rutherford to work on a demo tape of songs. Gabriel and Banks contributed "She is Beautiful", the first song they wrote together. The tape was sent to former Charterhouse pupil turned musician Jonathan King , who was immediately enthusiastic largely due to Gabriel's vocals.

He signed the group and suggested a band name of Gabriel's Angels, but it was unpopular with the other members. They settled on King's other suggestion, Genesis. After King suggested they stick towards more straightforward pop, Gabriel and Banks wrote " The Silent Sun " as a pastiche of the Bee Gees , one of King's favourite bands.

It became Genesis's first single, released in After the commercial failure of From Genesis to Revelation , the band went their separate ways and Gabriel continued his studies at Charterhouse. The second Genesis album, Trespass , marked Gabriel expanding his musical output with the accordion, tambourine, and bass drum, and incorporate his soul music influences. He wrote the lyrics to " The Knife " as a parody of a protest song.

The album sold little and at one point, Gabriel secured a place at London School of Film Technique because Genesis "seemed to be dying. Its opener, " The Musical Box ", was their first song in which Gabriel incorporated a story and characters into the lyrics. The shows supporting Foxtrot marked a key development in Gabriel's stage performance. He had started to recite stories to introduce numbers as a way to cover the silence between songs, while the band tuned their instruments, or while technical faults were being fixed.

He kept the idea to himself as he felt the band would have voted against it. Despite some initial doubts from his bandmates, the incident received front-page coverage in Melody Maker , giving them national exposure which allowed the group to double their performance fee.

One of Gabriel's stories was printed on the liner notes of their live album, Genesis Live By late , following the success of Selling England by the Pound , which centred around English themes and literary references, a typical Genesis show had Gabriel wear fluorescent make-up, a cape, and bat wings for " Watcher of the Skies ", a helmet, chest plate, and a shield for " Dancing With the Moonlit Knight ", various costumes for " Supper's Ready ", and an old man mask for "The Musical Box".

He devised its story of the spiritual journey of Rael, a Puerto Rican youth living in New York City, and the bizarre incidents and characters he meets on the way. Tensions increased during this period as Gabriel wanted to write all of the lyrics himself, and split with the band after director William Friedkin had invited him to work on a screenplay. The project dissolved, and Gabriel returned to work with Genesis.

Matters were complicated further with the difficult birth of Gabriel's first daughter, resulting in periods of time away from the band. In the end, Gabriel was late to deliver the lyrics and relied on contributions from Banks and Rutherford. In the liner notes, Gabriel is credited with "experiments with foreign sounds". He had Brian Eno provide additional electronic effects. During a stop in Cleveland, Ohio, early into the album's tour, Gabriel informed the band of his intention to leave at its conclusion.

Gabriel described his break from music as his "learning period", during which he took piano and music lessons. He had recorded demos by the end of ; the fruits of a period of writing around 20 songs with his friend Martin Hall. Gabriel did not title his first four albums. All were labelled Peter Gabriel , using the same typeface, with designs by Hipgnosis.

For many years, Gabriel was managed by Gail Colson. Peter Gabriel a. Peter Gabriel 1: Car was released in February and reached No. Its lead single, " Solsbury Hill ", is an autobiographical song about a spiritual experience on top of Solsbury Hill in Somerset. In late , Gabriel started recording the second Peter Gabriel album a. Peter Gabriel 2: Scratch in the Netherlands, with Fripp as producer.

Its "Mother of Violence" was written by Gabriel and his first wife Jill. Released in June , the album went to No. Gabriel's tour for the album lasted from August to December On this tour, Gabriel and his band shaved their heads. Gabriel recorded the third Peter Gabriel album a. Peter Gabriel 3: Melt in England in He had developed an interest in African music and drum machines and later hailed the record as his breakthrough. The album has been credited as the first to use gated reverb on the drums, creating a distinct sound.

Collins used the gated effect on his debut solo single " In the Air Tonight " which became a signature sound in the s and beyond. Atlantic Records — Gabriel's US distributor, which had released his first two albums — refused to put it out.

And, sure enough, when it was sent over there, it was given the big elbow. Gabriel signed with Mercury Records. In the US, it peaked at No. The singles " Games Without Frontiers " went to No. After a handful of shows in , Gabriel toured the album from February to October The tour marked Gabriel's first instance of crowd surfing when he fell back into the audience in a crucifix position. The stunt became a staple of his live shows.

On Peter Gabriel four a. Peter Gabriel 4: Security , Gabriel took on greater responsibility over the production than before. He recorded it in and , solely on digital tape, with a mobile studio parked at his home, Ashcombe House , in Somerset.

Gabriel performs a Fairlight CMI computer and incorporated electronic instrumentation with sampling world beat percussion. And the writing — particularly with the invention of these drum machines — is fantastic. You can store in their memories rhythms that interest you and excite you. And then the groove will carry on without you, and the groove will be exactly what you want it to be, rather than what a drummer thinks is appropriate for what you're doing.

The fourth Peter Gabriel , released in September , hit No. To handle American distribution, Gabriel signed with Geffen Records , which — initially unbeknown to Gabriel — titled the album Security to differentiate it from the first three. Gabriel's tour lasted for one year and became his first to make a profit. Gabriel produced versions of the third and fourth Peter Gabriel albums with German lyrics.

The third consisted of the studio recordings, overdubbed with new vocals. The fourth was remixed, with several tracks extended or altered. In , Gabriel developed the soundtrack for Alan Parker 's film Birdy This consisted of new material as well as remixed instrumentals from his previous studio album.

After finishing the soundtrack to Birdy , Gabriel shifted his musical focus from rhythm and texture, as heard on Peter Gabriel four and Birdy , towards more straightforward songs. It remains Gabriel's best selling album with over 5 million copies sold in the US alone. In the UK, the single went to No. Its famed music video was a collaboration between director Stephen R.

Scorsese had contacted Gabriel about the project since and wished, according to Gabriel, to present "the struggle between the humanity and divinity of Christ in a powerful and original way". It soundtrack was released as Passion in June From to , Gabriel recorded his follow-up to So , entitled Us.

The album saw Gabriel address personal themes, including his failed first marriage, psychotherapy, and the growing distance between him and his eldest daughter at the time. Gabriel's introspection within the context of the album Us can be seen in the first single release " Digging in the Dirt " directed by John Downer. Accompanied by a disturbing video featuring Gabriel covered in snails and various foliage, this song made reference to the psychotherapy which had taken up much of Gabriel's time since the previous album.

O'Connor also lent vocals to "Blood of Eden", directed by Nichola Bruce and Michael Coulson, the third single to be released from the album, and once again dealing with relationship struggles, this time going right back to Adam 's rib for inspiration.

The result was one of Gabriel's most personal albums. It met with less success than So , reaching No. Gabriel employed an innovative approach in the marketing of the Us album. Not wishing to feature only images of himself, he asked artist filmmakers Nichola Bruce and Michael Coulson to co-ordinate a marketing campaign using contemporary artists.

Coulson and Bruce documented the process on Hi-8 video.
