Scott Walker (born Noel Scott Engel in Hamilton, Ohio 1943) followed a rather unusual career path, from teen idol to become one of the most respected avant-garde artists in the world. Known for his characteristic baritone voice, Walker rose to fame in the mid 1960s as front man of The Walker Brothers – none of the three were members were related – enjoying major hits, particularly in the UK, such as “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine (Anymore)” and “Make it Easy on Yourself.” In 1967 Scott moved on with a solo career, leading him into a more baroque musical style, and gradually over to complex music from the 1990s and onwards. Later albums like ‘Tilt’ (1995) and ‘The Drift’ (2006) are considered as modern masterpieces. He collaborated with artists like Pulp, Sunn O))) and Bat for Lashes, and he’s widely considered a hugely influential musical figure. Scott Walker passed away on March 25, 2019. He was 76 years old.
