Daniel Lanois developed an early interest in music due to the influence of his violinist father and singer mother. During the 1970s, he earned a solid reputation as a recording engineer. In the early 1980s, he met Brian Eno, who would become his mentor and with whom he would produce some of the most outstanding albums put out by the band U2. During that period he also collaborated with Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan and Robbie Robertson. In 1989, he released his first solo album, Acadie, revealing his talents as a guitarist and singer. Since then, he has divided his time between his personal projects and his work as a producer.
