Biographical Information about Thomas Dolby

Thomas Morgan Robertson born 14 October 1958, known by the stage name Thomas Dolby, is an English musician, singer and producer. His hit singles include “She Blinded Me with Science” from 1982 and the 1984 single “Hyperactive!”. He has also worked in production and as a session musician, as a technology entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, and as the Music Director for the TED Conference. Currently on faculty at the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University, Dolby will lead Peabody’s Music for New Media program, slated to enroll its first students in the fall semester of 2018. The Thomas Dolby stage name originated from a nickname that he picked up in the early 1970s, when he was “always messing around with keyboards and tapes”.His friends nicknamed him “Dolby”, from the name of the audio noise-reduction process of Dolby Laboratories used for audio recording and playback. Robertson chose to adopt the stage name “Thomas Dolby” to avoid confusion with British singer Tom Robinson, who was popular when Robertson began his career. Early publicity implied that “Dolby” was a middle name, and that the artist’s full name was Thomas Morgan Dolby Robertson; this is legally incorrect, but he does sometimes informally go by the initials TMDR.
