“It’s that element of surprise. When you lose control, you discover new things…”
Daniel Lanois

One of the world’s most influential music makers, Canadian artist, songwriter and producer, Daniel Lanois, is the sonic shaper and spiritual inspiration of albums by the likes of U2, Neil Young, Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris and Bob Dylan. An ambient music pioneer, Lanois’ unique and innovative approach to sound is a key ingredient to the many well-loved songs he’s written over the past four decades that appear on his critically acclaimed solo albums such as Acadie, The Beauty of Wynona, Shine and Grammy nominated Belladonna. The music of Lanois, whether vocal or instrumental has always maintained a cinematic quality, which carries through to his steel guitar symphony projects Flesh And Machine and Goodbye To Language albums.
