Tricky (born Adrian Nicholas Matthews Thaws, 27 January 1968) is an English producer, vocalist, director, actor and musician. A native of Bristol, Tricky began his career as an early collaborator of Massive Attack before embarking on a solo career with his debut album, Maxinquaye, in 1995. The release won Tricky popular acclaim, including a nomination for the Mercury Prize and Album of the Year award by NME magazine, and marked the beginning of a lengthy collaborative partnership with vocalist Martina Topley-Bird. He released four more studio albums before the end of the decade, including Pre-Millennium Tension and the pseudonymous Nearly God, both in 1996. He has gone on to release six studio albums since 2000, most recently the self-titled Adrian Thaws (2014).
