John Foxx, whose real name is Dennis Leigh, is an English musician who gained fame as the lead singer of the British new wave band Ultravox in the 1970s and went on to a solo career known for electronic synthesiser music. Born in Lancashire, he went to art school and formed a band named Tiger Lily, which eventually became Ultravox. He left the band and released his debut solo album 'Metamatic' which reached number 18 on the UK Official Albums Chart.

'The Golden Section' reached number 27 on the Albums Chart in 1983 and 'In Mysterious Ways' stalled at number 85 in 1985. He set up a studio in 1982 where acts such as Depeche Mode, Brian Eno, The Cure, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Tina Turner recorded. He left the music business to be a graphic artist in the mid-1980s and returned in the mid-1990s, releasing 'Cathedral Oceans' in 2003. He collaborated with many artists including Louie Gordon, with whom he made several albums. He made a solo instrumental album, 'Tiny Colour Movies' in 2006 and 'Interplay' with Benge (Ben Edwards) as John Foxx and the Maths. A three-CD deluxe edition of 'Metamatic' came out in May 2018.
