1970 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: Rock

Born in 1970 in California into a family of artists, Beck’s career took off with the release of Mellow Gold in 1994, propelling him to the forefront of the alternative scene and establishing him as the standard-bearer for a generation. The brilliance continued with the multiplatinum Odelay, produced with the Dust Brothers, the first of a dizzyingly creative series of albums including Mutations in 1998, Midnite Vultures in 1999, the darker, melancholy Sea Change in 2002, the powerful Guero in 2005, the surprising The Information in 2006 and Modern Guilt, produced by Danger Mouse, in 2008. In 2009, he added another feather to his cap, producing Charlotte Gainsbourg’s album IRM. In 2014, he released his 12th album, Morning Phase, which led him here for his Festival debut.
