Biography

Tim Burgess was born in Salford on 30 May 1967 and grew up in Moulton, near Northwich, Cheshire. Rising to fame as the floppy-haired frontman of dancey Britpop mavericks the Charlatans, he scored two defining hits with the band – 1990's "The Only One I Know" and 1997's "One to Another" – as well as a classic '90s album in Tellin' Stories and many more LPs. After spending the decade honing his vocal chops with the acid house-influenced group, he dropped his debut solo album I Believe in 2003, but waited another nine years before dropping the follow-up. Oh No I Love You was released in 2012 on his own label O Genesis and featured collaborations with Factory Floor, R. Stevie Moore, and My Morning Jacket, among others. A team-up with Asia Argento, "Hours / Ours," arrived in 2014, also released on O Genesis, while his next full-length Same Language, Different Worlds was forged through various Trans-Atlantic collaborations, with famed New York composer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Gordon taking on the role of album producer. Ernie Brooks, who played with the late Arthur Russell on the first Modern Lovers album, trombone legend Peter Zummo, conga player Mustafa Ahmed and Nik Void from Factory Floor, were also enlisted as collaborators. Tim Burgess issued his fourth solo album, As I Was Now, in 2018 and went to number 31 on the UK albums chart with his fifth full-length I Love the New Sky. He returned in 2022 with a genre-twisting sixth LP, Typical Music, which was made with Coil and Spiritualized’s Thighpaulsandra, aka Timothy Lewis, and ex-Grumbling Fur musician Daniel O’Sullivan.
