Career

Radiohead

Greenwood had recently started university when Radiohead predecessor On A Friday signed a recording contract with EMI in 1991. He soon left school. While Greenwood is the only member of Radiohead to have been classically trained on any instrument (he took viola lessons as a child), he is also the only band member without an advanced degree. The EMI Group (LSE: EMI) is a British music company comprising of the major record company EMI Music which operates several labels, based in Brook Green in London, England, and EMI Music Publishing, based on Charing Cross Road, London. ...


Greenwood's influence on Radiohead's recording and writing can be heard in many songs, as he usually takes the traditional lead-guitarist role. For a while, Greenwood wore an arm brace due to a repetitive strain injury attributed to his "aggressive" way of playing the instrument. He often still wears the brace. He says, "It's like taping up your fingers before a boxing match."[1] A repetitive strain injury (RSI), also called repetitive stress injury or cumulative trauma, is any of a loose group of conditions from overuse of the computer, guitar, knife or similar motion or tool. ...


Greenwood is often credited as the second major influence on songwriting in Radiohead, along with Thom Yorke. He wrote the music for the closing tracks of OK Computer, and Hail to the Thief, the slow, jazzy rock song "The Tourist" and "A Wolf at the Door", respectively. According to Yorke the track "Just" from The Bends was "a competition by me and Jonny to get as many chords as possible into a song." An example of Greenwood's versatility is his use of the Ondes Martenot, which is featured on songs such as "The National Anthem" and "How to Disappear Completely" from the album Kid A. The song "Where I End and You Begin" from Hail to the Thief was dedicated to the memory of Jeanne Loriod, a pioneer of the Ondes.

Jonny Greenwood was hired by the BBC as its composer in residence in May 2004, a job which gave him the opportunity to compose several pieces for classical orchestra, piano and/or Ondes Martenot: Smear, Piano for Children and Popcorn Superhet Receiver. Smear premiered in 2004, and on 23 April 2005 Greenwood premiered his new work commissioned by BBC Radio 3, with music performed live by the BBC Concert Orchestra in London[2].

Radiohead are currently working on another album and recently performed many new songs during a summer 2006 tour. However, no release date has been set. According to interviews with Thom, the tour was Jonny's idea, as he feels the pressure of a firm deadline helps creativity.


Greenwood won the Radio 3 Listeners' Award at the 2006 BBC British Composer Awards [4] for his piece, "Popcorn Superhet Receiver". The piece was inspired by radio static and the extended, dissonant chords of Polish composer Penderecki's "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima", it can be streamed from a link on this page [5] Upon winning the award Greenwood received £10,000 from the PRS Foundation towards a commission for a new orchestral work.

Musical tastes

Greenwood is greatly influenced by jazz; his favorites include Lee Morgan and Miles Davis. He is a major fan of the Mo'Wax label (onetime home of Blackalicious, DJ Krush, DJ Shadow and Dr. Octagon). Along with other Radiohead band members he loves Krautrock band Can and Polish composer Penderecki. Although Greenwood says he dislikes later Pink Floyd, one of his favourite albums is Meddle (1971).[1] Greenwood's all time favourite piece of music is Messiaen's Turangalila Symphony, a gigantic piece for orchestra and Ondes Martenot, which he discovered as a teenager.[10]According to one of his entries on Radiohead's blog Dead Air Space, Greenwood has recently become a dub reggae aficionado, listening as of late 2005 to little else. He confessed in the same blog entry that he had never heard The Stooges' Fun House, although he was aware of its legendary reputation.

Personal life

Greenwood is married to Sharona Greenwood and has a son named Tamir who was born in 2002 and to whom Hail to the Thief was dedicated. He also has a daughter named Omri, born in 2005. Hail to the Thief, or The Gloaming as it is subtitled, is the sixth studio album by English rock band Radiohead, released on June 9, 2003 in the United Kingdom and June 10 in the United States and Canada. ... 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


As well as his iconic arm brace, Greenwood has a hairstyle that sets him apart from other band members. His hair is black, straight, and worn long, cut at an angle and often overhanging his face. In live concerts he is also recognized for a frequently worn T-shirt with a pictogram of a person and sound waves emanating from their head - perhaps a "radio head."


However, while Greenwood is sometimes seen as the most flamboyant and stylish member of the band, he also professes shyness. He is apparently somewhat uncomfortable with the sound of his voice, and did fewer interviews than other band members until recently. A longstanding joke among fans calls for Greenwood to sing, something he claims he will never do. However, he was spotted singing backup during several performances in the 2006 tour, including the songs "Black Star" and "The Bends", sharing a microphone with bandmate and guitarist Ed O'Brien. Greenwood is completely colorblind.[2] Edward Ed John OBrien (born April 15, 1968, in Oxford, England) is a member of Radiohead. ... Color blindness in humans is the inability to perceive differences between some or all colors that other people can distinguish. ...

Jonny Greenwood Biography - AOL Music (747 words)
Along with Thom Yorke's inimitable vocals, Jonny Greenwood's wide array of unconventional sonic textures helped to define Radiohead's distinctive sound and push the boundaries of their music into unusual and decidedly non-rock directions.
Jonny Greenwood, who was a couple of years younger than the other four, repeatedly asked to play with the group; he was finally invited to play harmonica with On a Friday at a 1987 gig at the Jericho Tavern in Oxford.
After The Bends, Greenwood began to show signs that he was growing uninspired with using the guitar as his primary means of expression.
