Daniel Lanois is a gifted musician, renowned producer, and ambient pioneer. From electro dynamics to soul singing, his new entourage continues to troubadour its way to the stage with harmony singing that has a special capacity to raise the spirit. 
 
Brian Eno recruited him to help with his Ambient series of albums, which lead Lanois to working on some of the biggest selling records of the time, by megastars as big as U2 and Peter Gabriel. Working with Bob Dylan in 1987, Lanois brought out a Roland TR-808 drum machine to use as a compositional tool – kickstarting the groove of the Oh Mercy album and helping make it one of the most dramatic creative reinventions in Dylan's career. A few years later, he and Eno helped bring the electronic music culture that they themselves had helped to inspire into U2's Achtung Baby.
