Seal had Lupus when he was young, which left him with scars evident on his face.
Before his musical career, Seal graduated from college with an architectural degree and took up different jobs around the London area, which included working at McDonald's, designing leather clothing and electrical engineering. Then, after a while, he began singing
in local bars and clubs and joined Push, an English funk band, in the mid-'80s and toured with the band in Japan.
While he was in Asia he joined a blues band from Thailand for a while. After some time with that band, he traveled
throughout India on his own. In 1990, Seal contributed lyrics and vocals to Adamski's "Killer" which was a big dance hit in 1990 in the UK. This really spun the wheels in motion for his musical career and from there he started working on his debut album which would be self-titled "Seal." He released the album in 1991 with former musician, Trevor Horn, as his producer.
Seal released five singles from the debut album. They include "Crazy," one of his most popular songs from that album, "Future Love Paradise," "The Beginning," "Killer" and "Violet." His first album sold 1 million copies in the United Kingdom and 3.5 million worldwide.
Seal also produced a compilation video for his debut album which was released in 1992 and included the music videos that were made for his singles as well as some acoustic, studio performances of some songs from his debut album. Seal also went on a European tour to promote his album.
In 1993, Seal teamed up with guitar legend, Jeff Beck, to perform a cover version of Jimi Hendrix's "Manic
Depression" on the "Stone Free: A Tribute To Jimi Hendrix" album. Seal and
Jeff Beck also released the song as a single.
After his success with the first album, Seal began work on his second album which would also be self-titled "Seal." He released the album in 1994 with a new look. He decided to get rid of his dreadlocks and sported a new, bald-headed look. He also came back with a new outlook on life and increased spirituality after his experiences over the previous three years. The album is his most successful album to date selling 700,000 copies in the UK and more than 5 million worldwide.
Seal wrote "Kiss From A Rose" in 1988 in London. He bathed in the success of his second album and went on tour with Soul/R&B artist, Des'ree as the opening act. In 1996, Seal performed "Fly Like An Eagle," originally performed by
Steve Miller, on the "Space Jam" Soundtrack. Seal has also performed on other compilations and in 1994 performed on Joni Mitchell's album, "Turbulent Indigo." She also performed on his 1994 album on the song "If I
