Biography

Despite growing up in the considerable shadow of a Beatle, Sean Lennon managed to overcome tragedy and forge an identity as a successful and respected singer-musician in his own right. The son of beloved music icon John Lennon and avant-garde pioneer Yoko Ono, Lennon lived life under a microscope roughly from birth, culminating with an even more intense magnification in the wake of his father's assassination by a crazed fan in December 1980. Gifted with his parents' creative genius, Lennon launched his career by appearing on his mother's avant-garde musical albums throughout the 1980s and making his feature film debut in "Moonwalker" (1988), starring close friend Michael Jackson. As he grew into a serious-minded young man who, like half-brother Julian Lennon, eerily began resembling his slain father, Lennon collaborated with a diverse roster of artists, from Cibo Matto to Lenny Kravitz before releasing his critically acclaimed solo debut Into the Sun (1998), followed by his sophomore effort Friendly Fire (2006). Though his solo work established Lennon as a viable performer, it was his work behind-the-scenes, whether as songwriter, session musician or producer that punctuated his career as a versatile entertainer and a rightful heir to his father's musical legacy.
