Thomas Edward Yorke (born 7 October 1968 in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, England) is a Grammy-winning English musician, best known as the lead singer of the band Radiohead. He has also recorded as a solo artist; he released his debut album, The Eraser, in July 2006, and has collaborated with many other artists. Yorke mainly plays electric guitar, acoustic guitar and piano, but he has also played drums and bass guitar (notably during the Kid A and Amnesiac sessions). Yorke is also an electronic musician, and The Eraser was heavily influenced by electronic music. In 2005, Yorke became a spokesman for Friends of the Earth and their campaign to reduce carbon emissions, The Big Ask.
