Didier Lockwood (born 11 February 1956 in Calais) is a French jazz violinist. He played in the progressive rock/jazz fusion band Magma in the 1970s and is known for his use of electric amplification and experimentation on different sounds on the electric violin.[1][2][3]

In 1979, he released his first album as a leader, New World,[4] and has recorded more than 20 albums of his own since then.[5]

In 1994, Lockwood moved to New York City for 2 years. During that time he recorded 2 albums "New York Rendez Vous" and "Storyboard" [6]

Lockwood's influences include fusion violinist Jean-Luc Ponty. He took up the electric violin after hearing Ponty play on the album King Kong: Jean-Luc Ponty Plays the Music of Frank Zappa.[1] Another important influence was fellow Frenchman Stéphane Grappelli. In 2000, Lockwood recorded a tribute album to Grappelli.[7]
