From his early days playing keyboards in Paris' Metro underground to his presence now at the helm of Beatnik, Thomas Dolby Robertson has always worked to merge creativity and technology into a cohesive musical expression.
As a London teenager, Thomas Robertson was fascinated with the convergence of music and technology. His experiments with an assortment of keyboards, synthesizers and cassette players led his friends to dub him "Dolby". That same fascination later drove him to become an electronic musician and multimedia artist whose groundbreaking work fused music with computer technology and video.
Thomas began his performing career beneath the streets of Paris, playing his synthesizer-based songs in the Metro subway. The advent of MTV brought him increased exposure: His well-produced and intelligent videos stood out from the pack, and his songs "She Blinded Me With Science" and "Hyperactive" became huge hits. Numerous awards and five Grammy nominations later, Thomas had achieved worldwide recognition as an artist. His two decades of innovations in the area of computer music and software have greatly impacted the sound of today's popular music.
