David Sylvian

David Sylvian biography, focusing on his solo years, available now | Music  News | Tiny Mix TapesDavid Sylvian (born David Alan Batt, 23 February 1958) is an English singer-songwriter and musician who came to prominence in the late 1970s as frontman of the band Japan. The band’s androgynous look and increasingly electronic sound made them an important influence on the UK’s early-1980s New Romantic scene. Following their breakup, Sylvian embarked on a solo career with his debut album Brilliant Trees (1984). His solo work has been described by AllMusic as “far-ranging and esoteric,” and has included collaborations with artists such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Robert Fripp, Holger Czukay, and Fennesz.
