Since we have a best female vocal music thread, I think it would be good to have one for males just for those clueless people like me


A few years ago I was an opera fan, lately I am into pop and I realize that singers like Andrea Bocelli who doesn't have a large voice for opera can be great pop singers due to the wide range of voice. (i.e. not many male pop singers can hit a high C, or as effortless as Bocelli does)

So list your favorite male vocal musics, and maybe include some used for measurement standards (if any)?

I would vote for Josh Grogan if you want to hear a good male vocalist.

I third James Taylor. He can sing and play, what more could you want?

James Dewar, best known for his work with Robin Trower. You know, Bridge of Sighs, Day of the Eagle, Lady Love, Little Bit of Sympathy...

Check my link in the Music/Videos For Sale Forum for some great Dewar info.

Glad to see there are other fans of Leonard Cohen's work all over the world.
