Who is Roger Eno?
He began euphonium lessons at 12, and at 16 entered Colchester College to study music. On graduating, and after a period of busking in London, he returned to Colchester to run a music therapy course at a local hospital for the mentally handicapped.
His first recording experience was in 1983 with his brother Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois for the album Apollo at Lanois’ Grant Avenue Studios in Canada. His first solo album, Voices, was released in 1985.
Although mainly regarded as a pianist, Roger Eno is in fact a multi-instrumentalist and keen singer, as demonstrated on his later solo albums and collaborations. He has worked with several key artists apart from his brother including Bill Nelson, No-Man, Lol Hammond, Mads Arp, Peter Hammill, Tim Bowness, and Michael Brook, the most successful of which was probably his co-written album, The Familiar, with Kate St John.
