Graham Leslie Coxon (born 12 March 1969) is an English musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and painter who came to prominence as a founding member of the rock band Blur. As the group’s lead guitarist and secondary vocalist, Coxon was featured on seven of Blur’s studio albums, from 1991’s Leisure to 2015’s The Magic Whip, despite being absent from the group from 2002 to 2008 owing to a dispute with the other members during the recording of 2003’s Think Tank. He has also led a solo career since 1998. As well as being a musician, Coxon was a visual artist: he designed the cover art for all his solo albums as well as Blur’s 13 (1999).

Coxon studied Fine Arts at Goldsmiths College, London, for two years, where early on he met bassist Alex James. In his time there he mixed with upcoming talents such as Damien Hirst, Michael Landy, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Abigail Lane, some of the future leading lights of the Britart movement. He quit college due to the increasing success of his band at the time, Seymour, which later changed its name to Blur because the recording company, Food Records, thought Seymour was too ‘student-ish’. They presented a list to the band of preferred names which included “The Shining Path” and “Blur”. As well as providing all guitars, backing vocals, and occasional drums, Coxon’s lo-fi and alternative musical style and tastes influenced the band’s less commercial music in the late 1990s. He sang lead vocals on songs including “Red Necks”, “You’re So Great” from the album Blur, and “Coffee & TV”, as well as a section of the chorus of “Tender”, the bridge of “Lonesome Street” and a section of “Thought I Was a Spaceman” on The Magic Whip.

During the 1995 period of the media-dubbed ‘Battle of Britpop’, Coxon became increasingly weary and suspicious of the music industry. His behaviour was occasionally awkward, such as refusing to appear in the video for Blur song “Country House” unless he could dress as a milkman and take no part in any action with which he felt uncomfortable.

In November 2001 Coxon was admitted to the Priory Hospital for 28 days to be treated for alcoholism. During this time, Blur began the recording sessions that would produce the material for their next album, Think Tank. In February 2002, Coxon rejoined the band in the studio for the rest of the recording of Think Tank but after five days was asked by then manager Chris Morrison not to go back into the studio as the other members of the band had reported that the session was not going too well with him present. Coxon took this as a sign and left the band. As he stated in an interview in 2006, “I had a breakthrough, I think my life just became calmer, I gave up drinking. My priorities changed as I had a young daughter. The group didn’t want me to record for the Think Tank album, so I took it as a sign to leave”. His last contribution to Blur was a song called “Battery in Your Leg”, the closing song on Blur’s 2003 album Think Tank, before leaving the line-up. Damon Albarn later revealed that the song “Sweet Song” was written after he had been looking at a photograph of Coxon.

Coxon had already released three solo albums while a member of Blur before his 2002 departure. His first, released on his own Transcopic label was The Sky Is Too High in 1998, a ramshackle mixture of English folk music and 1960s-style garage rock, influenced by Billy Childish. This was followed by the more extreme The Golden D in 2000 and the thoughtful Dylan-Drakesque Crow Sit on Blood Tree (2001). After going solo full-time, he released The Kiss of Morning in 2002. The album proved to be his most accessible to date and was promoted with the single “Escape Song” which proved to be an interesting hybrid of Syd Barrett’s “Octopus” and progressive rock trail-blazers The Nice. In 2004, Coxon released his fifth solo album Happiness in Magazines, produced by ex-Blur and The Smiths producer Stephen Street. This proved to be his most successful album to date, and he received the NME Award for Best Solo Artist in 2005.
