About David Sylvian

Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist David Sylvian's career began with U.K. art-rockers Japan, who grew from an abrasive glam-punk outfit to a highly sophisticated group of forward-looking pop experimentalists. Following the band's breakup, Sylvian embarked on a career of solo work and collaborations with 1970s legends such as King Crimson's Robert Fripp and Can's Holger Czukay, with a broad sonic palette encompassing the influences of jazz, ambient music, folk, raga, and R&B.
