(But not before talking to us)


In the liner notes to Daniel Lanois’ 2003 album Shine, the musician and producer writes: “What a privilege to be able to make music. And what an honor to have it received and appreciated.”

“Appreciated” may be something of an understatement, given Lanois’ legendary reputation in the music industry and the ample praise heaped upon him by his peers — most recently with the announcement of his induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame on March 22, 2012.

Lanois has made an indelible mark on the industry by producing career-defining albums for Peter Gabriel (So, Us), Emmylou Harris (Wrecking Ball), Willie Nelson (Teatro), Robbie Robertson (self-titled) and his frequent collaborator, Brian Eno. Together with Eno, Lanois produced groundbreaking records with U2, including The Joshua Tree, The Unforgettable Fire, and Achtung Baby.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “the most important record producer to emerge in the ’80s,” Lanois would go on to produce what many have called Bob Dylan’s “comeback” album, 1989′s Oh Mercy, then later 1997′s Time Out of Mind, which would go on to win three Grammy awards including Album of the Year.

Lanois’ atmospheric signature sound can also be heard on albums by The Neville Brothers (Yellow Moon), Neil Young (Le Noise), and seminal U2 projects like How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb and All That You Can’t Leave Behind (he also co-wrote the music on U2′s latest, No Line on the Horizon).

His forays on the big screen include soundtracks to Sling Blade, the theme to David Lynch’s Dune, along with a film chronicling the recording of his own album, Here Is What Is. As a solo artist, Lanois’ personal catalogue includes numerous albums, from his acclaimed 1989 debut Acadie to the self-titled 2010 release from his latest project Black Dub.

Lanois sat down with Rock Cellar Magazine to chat about his four-decade career in music and his upcoming induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame.
