Peter Gabriel is an English singer-songwriter, musician, and activist. Gabriel was as the original lead vocalist of Genesis from 1967 to 1975. During his time with the band, he helped to shape their sound and stage presence, and his theatrical performances became a hallmark of the group’s live shows. In 1975, Gabriel left Genesis to pursue a solo career, which would go on to be just as successful.

Gabriel’s solo work has included some milestones in his career, including the release of his fourth album, “Security,” in 1982. This album marked a significant departure from his earlier work, incorporating elements of world music and African rhythms into his music, as well as tackling political and social issues in his lyrics. The album’s hit single “Shock the Monkey” became a staple of Gabriel’s live shows and remains one of his most iconic songs to this day.

Throughout his career, Gabriel has collaborated with numerous other artists, including Kate Bush, Laurie Anderson, and Youssou N’Dour. He also worked with film composer Hans Zimmer on the soundtrack for the blockbuster movie “Gladiator,” which won an Academy Award for Best Original Score. Gabriel’s work has also been recognized with several awards and nominations, including multiple Grammy Awards and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis.

Some of the celebrities that Gabriel has worked with over the years include fellow musicians such as Phil Collins and Sting. He has also collaborated with film directors such as Martin Scorsese and Brian De Palma on movie soundtracks, as well as with artists from other disciplines, including visual artist Robert Rauschenberg and dancer/choreographer Bill T. Jones.
