Thomas Dolby. Dolby has had a long illustrious career as a muscian. In 1985, he appeared at the Grammy Awards along with Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, and Howard Jones. All four musicians were successful keyboard and synthesizer experts in the mid-1980s music scene. That same year, Dolby performed at the Live Aid concert in London as part of David Bowie's band. Dolby is best known for his groundbreaking techno hit, “She Blinded Me With Science," but that is far from the biggest hit of his lifetime. Most notably, since 2001, Thomas Dolby has acted as Musical Director of The TED Conference, an annual event in Long Beach, California that attracts some of the world's foremost thinkers, inventors, and speakers. In this capacity Dolby provides live musical introductions to sessions, sometimes with an eclectic TED House Band, as well as helping secure guest musicians and entertainers for the event.
