Chicane is often seen as one of, if not the seminal Trance originator. With the track "Offshore," he refined cool in the dance genre that the name Chicane became synonymous with. "Saltwater" followed on and became a UK top-five hit. Worldwide success was sealed with a collaboration between Chicane and Bryan Adams, Don’t Give Up from the hit album "Behind the Sun." The track has reached the number-one spot on the UK Singles Chart. Now recognized as a dancefloor classic, it was one of the first dance collaboration tracks to reach such heights.
In addition to his work as Chicane, the artist, he has worked with and produced music with Cher, Sir Tom Jones, William Orbit, and Natasha Beddingfield. He's also composed for TV and film.
