As the lead singer of the idiosyncratic alternative rock band Radiohead, Thom Yorke has been a pioneer of the rock and roll genre since the '90s. When he isn't recording or performing with Radiohead, Yorke has a thriving solo career that he uses to blend together rock and electronic music. He is also the lead singer of the band Atoms for Peace, which consists of legendary bass guitarist Flea, drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Mauro Refosco. In 2019, Thom Yorke was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the rest of the members of Radiohead.
Boys from Abingdon
While attending the boys' public school Abingdon in the '80s, Thom Yorke formed his first band, On a Friday, with fellow students Philip Selway, Ed O'Brien and Colin and Jonny Greenwood, all of whom are still members of the band. After signing with Parlophone records, the band changed its name to Radiohead in 1991. Two years later Radiohead released its debut studio album, Pablo Honey, which peaked at only No. 22 but sold 1.5 million copies in the United States due to its long tail. Radiohead experienced consistent, sustained commercial and critical success throughout the '90s and 2000s. Following the band's temporary hiatus in 2004, Thom Yorke embarked on a promising solo career. He released his first solo album, The Eraser, on July 10th, 2006, and it peaked at No. 2 in the US and No. 3 in the UK. Yorke then briefly put aside his solo career to focus on his work with Radiohead and Atoms for Peace. However, he later returned to his solo career with the release of Tomorrow's Modern Boxes in 2014 and Anima in 2019. Thom Yorke has received 21 nominations from the Grammy Awards both as a member of Radiohead and as a solo performer. During his Radiohead career, he won a Grammy three times, including the 1997 Best Alternative Music Performance for OK Computer, the 2000 Best Alternative Music Album for Kid A and the 2008 Best Alternative Music Album for In Rainbows. Thom Yorke also records music for films such as The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Suspiria.
