Adrian Utley is best known for being guitarist in the band Portishead, who gained critical acclaim in the 1990s for their albums ‘Dummy’ (which won the 1995 Mercury Music Prize) and the self-titled ‘Portishead’. Dummy has been widely regarded as a milestone of the trip-hop genre, and the band are considered to be responsible for helping to shape the “Bristol Sound” of the 1990s along with the likes of Massive Attack and Tricky. Although Portishead has been dormant for some time the band are still working together, but in the meantime Utley has been exploring other avenues. As a self-confessed minimalist, he has recorded Terry Riley’s seminal work ‘In C’ with his guitar orchestra, and his jazz roots come into their own when he performs with avant-garde outfit Get The Blessing.
