Biography

David Robert Jones, better known by his stage name David Bowie, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, arranger, actor, painter, and art collector.

David Bowie has been a major figure in the world of popular music for over four decades, and is renowned as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. David Bowie is also known for his distinctive voice as well as the intellectual depth and eclecticism of his work. Aside from his musical abilities, he is recognised for his androgynous beauty, which was an iconic element to his image, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s.

David Bowie first caught the eye and ear of the public in July 1969 when his song « Space Oddity » reached the top five of the UK Singles Chart. After a three-year period of experimentation he re-emerged in 1972 during the glam rock era with the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust, spearheaded by the hit single « Starman » and the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The relatively short-lived Ziggy persona proved merely one facet of a career marked by continual reinvention, musical innovation and striking visual presentation.

At that time, he also worked as a collaborator and producer with Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, for « China Girl » (1977) for instance.

In 1975, David Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single « Fame » and the hit album Young Americans, which the singer characterised as « plastic soul ». The sound constituted a radical shift in style that initially alienated many of his UK devotees. He then confounded the expectations of both his record label and his American audiences by recording the minimalist album Low (1977)—the first of three collaborations with Brian Eno over the next two years. Low, « Heroes », and Lodger, the so-called « Berlin Trilogy » albums, all reached the UK top five and received lasting critical praise.

After uneven commercial success in the late 1970s, David Bowie had UK number ones with the 1980 single « Ashes to Ashes », its parent album Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps), and « Under Pressure », a 1981 collaboration with Queen.

David Bowie then reached a new commercial peak in 1983 with Let’s Dance, which yielded several hit singles. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Bowie continued to experiment with musical styles, including blue-eyed soul, industrial, adult contemporary, and jungle. He has not toured since the 2003–04 Reality Tour and has not performed live since 2006. Bowie’s latest studio album The Next Day was released in March 2013.

In 2015, the touring exhibition « David Bowie Is » gives access to the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie. « David Bowie Is » features more than 300 objects that include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and Bowie’s own instruments.

Throughout his career, David Bowie has sold an estimated 140 million albums.
