About Tim Burgess

As the lead singer of the Charlatans, Tim Burgess helped create a bridge between the baggy sound of Madchester and the bright retro vibes of Brit-pop. The Charlatans were one of a handful of bands to debut at the dawn of the 1990s and not only remained at the top of the U.K. charts throughout the decade, but sustained a career that lasted even longer. Burgess occasionally stepped away from the group during their intermittent hiatuses but it was in the 2010s when he developed a persona distinct from the group by releasing a series of increasingly adventurous solo albums. Rooted in pop and encompassing experimental psychedelia, chill-out electronica, and other forms of cheerfully arty eclecticism, Burgess made anything but Typical Music, in the words of a knowing title he gave his 2022 album.
