Desperately seeking... MALE Vocalists


22 juin 2011, 23h57m

I'm feeling rather distraught that I apparently listen almost exclusively to music with female vocalists (as my "tag cloud" has made impossible to ignore any further!). The truth is I happen to be especially fond of a nice, intriguing voice, and I have found more of the types of voices and of music that suits my taste amongst the female gender.

Here's a short list of male vocalists that I really enjoy, so if you think you know something I might enjoy based on this selection, please do recommend it!


Fink - this could very well be my absolute favorite male vocalist.

Glen Hansard, either with The Frames or with The Swell Season

José González, alone or with Zero 7

Habib Koité

Lokua Kanza, including his work with Gerald Toto/Lokua Kanza/Richard Bona

City and Colour

Jack White, while less my style in terms of music, his voice makes it a winner for me either in The White Stripes or The Raconteurs

Sean Hayes

... I might add more when I think of more.

    Thanks for the suggestions folks! - I'm having trouble getting into the music of Bon Iver, but recently picked up the latest album to give it another try. I think it may need several listens. - I am listening to Josh Garrels' latest offering since it was available free from his site... promising though I was thrown off by this artist being labeled "Christian"... - I was unfamiliar with Thomas Mapfumo and Mansour Seck. So far, I've not managed to find any more than 30 second samples for Thomas Mapfumo that don't give me much of a taste. As for Mansour Seck, his voice didn't do it for me, too nasal. - Finally, tried a few tracks from Declan De Barra and I think I like! Will see about buying an album when I figure out which one to start with. Thanks again!
