Early life[edit] Trevor Charles Horn was born to John and Elizabeth Horn on 15 July 1949 in the city of Durham in the north east of England.[5][6] The second of four children, Horn has two sisters, Janet and Marjorie, and a brother, Ken Horn.[7][5] The family lived in a valley next to a dairy where John worked as an engineer during time away from playing the double bass in the Joe Clarke Big Band, and taught his son to play the instrument.[8] Horn attended Johnston Grammar School in Durham, during which he played in the local youth orchestra, but changed direction when he picked up the bass guitar and played in semi-professional rock bands inspired by his father.[6] Among the groups he joined, at 14 years of age, was The Outer Limits, named after the 1963 television series of the same name.[9] At 17, Horn wished to become a professional musician and "woke my parents up at 4am to tell them" to their initial reluctance as they wished for him to become a chartered accountant as he was good at maths, but Horn failed his exams. After getting sacked at a subsequent job, Horn became a bassist in a band and earned £24 a week for five nights' work.[5] He and his family then moved to Leicester, and Horn's growing interest in sound recording and techniques led to his assistance in the construction of a recording studio in the city while he performed in local ballrooms. Prior to the studio's completion, Horn relocated to London and took up work as a session musician, starting out producing jingles and unsuccessful records, and working with punk rock groups.[6][8] Career[edit] Bands[edit] Horn began his professional career as a session musician in the late 1970s, including playing on the television show, Come Dancing.[10] Most notably, he played for disco star Tina Charles and her producer Biddu, whose backing tracks were an influence on Horn's early work.[11] Another member of her backing band was keyboard player Geoffrey Downes. In 1978, Horn and Downes formed The Buggles, in which Horn played bass, guitar and percussion as well as providing vocals, while the female vocalist was Linda Jardim (now Linda Allan). Just before The Buggles, however, Horn signed with Sonet Records
Sonet Records
and recorded two singles under the moniker of 'The Big A'. One single, "Caribbean Air Control", was released in the United Kingdom but failed to chart. A few months later, the song was remixed into a disco track under the name of "Chromium" ("Chrome" in the US) with no vocals and a synthesised and percussion backbeat. This also failed to chart, but did well in the disco clubs, especially in the US and Canada. In 1979, an entire album was released entitled Star to Star. Around this time Horn, Downes and Bruce Woolley (Tina Charles's guitarist) co-wrote "Video Killed the Radio Star", which was released by The Buggles
The Buggles
in 1979; it reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart[12] and was the first music video to be played on MTV. The song also appeared on the group's first album, The Age of Plastic, released in 1980. Later that year, Horn and Downes were invited to join the rock group Yes. Horn became the lead vocalist, replacing Jon Anderson. He recorded one album with Yes, Drama, on which he also played bass on one track.[3] At the beginning of 1981, after only seven months, he left Yes

to concentrate on production work.

He also completed a second Buggles album, Adventures in Modern Recording, mainly alone after a disagreement with Geoff Downes. Horn did work with Yes
Yes
again, not as a band member, but (co-)producing their next two studio albums, including the 1983 "comeback" album 90125. He also went on to be a founding member of the Art of Noise. He is known for performing on albums that he produces. His latest band is Producers, in which Horn plays with various musicians/producers, namely Lol Creme, producer Steve Lipson, drummer Ash Soan

and initially singer/songwriter Chris Braide. The band performed its first gig at the Camden Barfly in November 2006. They continue to perform, now under the name the Trevor Horn

Band. Production[edit] Horn (sometimes working with Geoff Downes) was the producer of the Buggles material, and during his tenure with Yes, Horn helped produce their releases. (official production credit on Drama was given to Yes and engineer Eddy Offord). He continued working with Yes
Yes
on and off as a producer, including on the album 90125
90125
and the hit single "Owner of a Lonely Heart". Asked in a 2015 interview about what he considers his best work over the years, Horn named "Owner of a Lonely Heart" from a technical point of view.[13] Horn's first outside production success came with the pop band Dollar in 1981 and 1982. Four UK Top 20 singles, "Mirror Mirror", "Hand Held in Black and White", "Give Me Back My Heart" and "Videotheque" were all co-written and produced by Horn. He then went on to produce The Lexicon of Love (1982) by ABC,[14] which reached No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart. It was during the Lexicon sessions that Horn first assembled the production team that would characterise and define the sound of a Horn production in the 1980s: Anne Dudley
Anne Dudley
on keyboards and arrangements, Gary Langan (later Stephen Lipson) as chief engineer, J. J. Jeczalik on programming for the Fairlight CMI, backing vocalist Tessa Webb plus percussionist Luis Jardim. Originally brought in to play keyboard, Dudley was soon co-writing with the group and scoring the album's orchestrations. He achieved his greatest commercial success in 1984, firstly with the Liverpudlian band Frankie Goes to Hollywood.[15] He was approached by Bob Geldof
Bob Geldof
to produce the song "Do They Know It's Christmas?", but he was unavailable. Instead, he gave use of his studio, SARM West in London, free of charge to the project for 24 hours, which Geldof accepted, assigning Midge Ure

as the producer instead. On 25 November 1984, the song was recorded and mixed. Horn did produce the B-side featuring messages from artists who had and had not made the recording (including David Bowie, Annie Lennox
Annie Lennox
from Eurythmics, Paul McCartney, all members of Big Country
Big Country
and Holly Johnson

from Frankie Goes to Hollywood), which were also recorded over the same backing track as the A-side. Other artists he has produced include John Howard, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Cher, Grace Jones, Seal, Propaganda, Tina Turner, Lisa Stansfield, Pet Shop Boys, Simple Minds, Eros Ramazzotti, Mike Oldfield, Marc Almond, Charlotte Church, t.A.T.u., LeAnn Rimes, Genesis and Belle & Sebastian. Several musicians have described Horn's style of production as dominating. Frankie Goes to Hollywood's debut album Welcome to the Pleasuredome
Welcome to the Pleasuredome
barely featured any of the band's performances, instead featuring Horn and session musicians (lead single "Relax" cost £70,000 spent across three sessions that included scrapped versions by the band and by Ian Dury's backing band, before Horn re-recorded the song himself[16]); and the Pet Shop Boys remarked that although Horn had promised to complete their single "Left to My Own Devices" in a couple of weeks, it took several months for them to receive the final mix due to the lavish live orchestration and studio work. On 11 November 2004, a Prince's Trust
Prince's Trust
charity concert celebrating Horn's 25 years as a record producer took place at Wembley Arena. Performers at the show included The Buggles, Bruce Woolley, ABC, Art of Noise, Belle & Sebastian, Lisa Stansfield, Pet Shop Boys, Seal, Dollar, Propaganda, t.A.T.u., Yes, Grace Jones
Grace Jones
and Frankie Goes to Hollywood (with Ryan Molloy

replacing original vocalist Holly Johnson). A double album, Produced by Trevor Horn, was released in conjunction with the concert. An edited version of the concert has been broadcast on television in several countries under the title 25 Years of Pop: Produced by Trevor Horn, and a DVD release of the full concert called Slaves to the Rhythm is available. On 22 May 2006, the Pet Shop Boys
Pet Shop Boys
released their album Fundamental which was produced by Horn. The album reached No. 5 in the UK chart. In the same month, he featured in a Pet Shop Boys
Pet Shop Boys
concert specially recorded for BBC Radio 2. Following the critical success of the event Horn has produced an album version, Concrete, released on 23 October 2006. Horn also produced Captain's debut album, This is Hazelville, released late 2006. He has also worked with John Legend
John Legend
and David Jordan. For the 2008 movie Wanted (starring James McAvoy
James McAvoy
and Angelina Jolie), Horn produced Danny Elfman's vocals on the closing credits song "The Little Things".[17] In 2009, Horn produced the album Reality Killed The Video Star
Reality Killed The Video Star
for British singer Robbie Williams.[18] Aside from the album title paying homage to Horn's hit single with The Buggles
The Buggles
back in 1979, it also reflects Horn and Williams' mutual disdain for the ongoing crop of reality television and music contest programmes in the UK and elsewhere. Ironically, the album was Williams' first studio album not to reach number 1 in the UK, beaten to the top spot by the debut album by JLS, who were runners-up on television's "The X Factor" in 2008. Horn was also the executive producer of Jeff Beck's album, Emotion & Commotion, released in early 2010. He returned to work with Yes again, producing their new album from October 2010.[19] That album, 2011's Fly From Here, is a reunion of sorts for Horn's former bandmate Geoff Downes; not only is Downes a member of the band's current incarnation, but the album also takes its title from a song written by Horn and Downes and performed by Yes
Yes
during their original stint with the band in 1980. Songwriting[edit] Horn's songwriting credits date back to 1979 when he co-wrote a song for Dusty Springfield, "Baby Blue" with Bruce Woolley and Geoff Downes. All the Buggles' hits – including "Video Killed the Radio Star", "Living in the Plastic Age", "Elstree" and "I Am a Camera" – were co-written by Horn and Downes. Horn co-wrote all of the 1980 Yes
Yes
album, Drama. On his return to the band (as producer) in 1983 he contributed to their biggest hit, "Owner of a Lonely Heart" and the dance hit "Leave It"; still later, he would co-write about half of the tracks on their 2011 album Fly from Here, much of which was based on a song he had written with Downes back in the Drama era, just prior to joining the band. For Dollar's The Dollar Album
The Dollar Album
(1982), Horn wrote a love story across four songs: "Hand Held in Black and White", "Mirror Mirror", "Give Me Back My Heart" and "Videotheque". All four singles reached the UK Top 20, and two, "Mirror Mirror" and "Give Me Back My Heart", reached No. 4 in the UK chart. During 1982 and 1983, Horn worked with Malcolm McLaren
Malcolm McLaren
and Anne Dudley, writing numerous worldwide hits including "Buffalo Gals", "Double Dutch", "Duck for the Oyster" and the Duck Rock
Duck Rock
album. In 1984, he co-wrote several hits with the Art of Noise
Art of Noise
including "Close (To the Edit)", "Beat Box" and "Moments in Love". The next year he co-wrote "Slave to the Rhythm". This was originally intended as Frankie Goes to Hollywood's second single, but was instead given to Grace Jones. Horn and his studio team reworked and reinterpreted it, jazz style, into six separate songs to form the album Slave to the Rhythm. Horn also contributed to the album by approaching David Gilmour, who ultimately played guitar on it.[20] In the 1990s, Horn wrote two songs for solo female singers. "Riding into Blue (Cowboy Song)" was recorded by Inga Humpe and "Docklands" which was recorded by Betsy Cook. He also co-wrote two songs with Terry Reid
Terry Reid
for his 1991 album, The Driver and "The Shape of Things to Come" for Cher's 1995 album It's a Man's World. Horn co-wrote the theme song "Everybody Up" to the TV programme The Glam Metal Detectives, a comedy sketch show which appeared on BBC Two in 1995. This was another collaboration with Lol Creme. Horn's songwriting can be heard on numerous film soundtracks. In 1992, Horn collaborated with composer Hans Zimmer
Hans Zimmer
to produce the score for the movie Toys, which included interpretations by Tori Amos, Pat Metheny and Thomas Dolby. In the 2000s, Horn provided additional production on three international hits for t.A.T.u., "All the Things She Said", "Not Gonna Get Us", and "Clowns (Can You See Me Now)". He also co-wrote "Pass the Flame" (the official torch relay song for the 2004 Olympics in Athens) in collaboration with Lol Creme
Lol Creme
and co-wrote the title track from Lisa Stansfield's 2004 album The Moment. He co-wrote 'Sound The Bugle', performed by Bryan Adams and featured on the Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron soundtrack. In 2017, Horn wrote the music for the Stan Lee
Stan Lee
co-produced anime "The Reflection – Wave One".[21][22] Music publishing[edit] In 1982, Horn founded the musical publishing company Perfect Songs together with his wife, Jill Sinclair. This coincided with their then recent acquisition of Basing Street Studios, which also housed the fledgling publishing company. Perfect Songs
Perfect Songs
was able to harness and develop the up-and-coming young artists working in the recording studio. The first to be signed were Frankie Goes to Hollywood, followed by the Art of Noise
Art of Noise
and Propaganda. These first few signings to the company were instrumental in establishing the company ethos of "innovation and artiste development, taking risks and signing acts far into the left field".[23] Successful songwriters he has signed since include Seal, Ian Brown, Gabrielle, Chris Braide, Shane MacGowan, Marsha Ambrosius, Alistair Griffin, and Paul Simm (writer of the hit "Overload" for Sugababes).

Personal life[edit] Horn married former mathematics teacher and business partner Jill Sinclair in 1980. They have four children; two sons, Aaron and William (formerly known as Rebecca[30]), and two daughters, Gabriella and Alexandra (or "Ally"),[31] the latter of whom has worked as a trainee solicitor.[5] Aaron (known in the industry as "Aaron Audio"), like his father, is a musician and producer. He was in the band Sam and the Womp[32] and frequently DJs around London. Both Aaron and Ally Horn are co-directors of Sarm Studios. As of August 2016[update], Horn has three grandsons.[31] On 25 June 2006, while at home from Goldsmiths College, University of London, Aaron was practising with his air rifle, not realising his mother was close by. A 4.5 mm (.17 calibre) air gun pellet accidentally hit Jill in the neck, severing an artery and causing irreversible brain damage from hypoxia, leaving only her lower brain functions and no chance for recovery.[33] She was rushed to the Royal Berkshire Hospital intensive care unit where her condition was described as "critical but stable". Communication from ZTT Records confirmed on 1 September 2006 that Jill was in a natural coma and had been moved to a rehabilitation centre. In September 2009, Horn told The Times
The Times
that he preferred not to answer questions about his wife, but confirmed that she was still in a coma.[34] In June 2012, Horn told The Sunday Times
The Sunday Times
that his wife was not in a coma, but, "She cannot speak, move, or smile. The only expression she can show is of discomfort."[33] Jill Sinclair died of cancer on 22 March 2014, aged 61.[35][36] Horn is not Jewish, but has attended synagogue with his children.[37] In late 2017, Horn's home and recording studio in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles
