The threads subject is self explanatory "Who is your favorite singer and or musician?''.

Am I to assume this differs from the band/genre thread in that it is about solo musicians or singers?

Correct

In that case, I'd say William Orbit's a musician near the top of my list. I don't have a single favourite.

All of you have good taste in music. I have no favorite singer or musician so I will pick one at random.

Would Koji Kondo count? I mean, he's technically a composer... but still. He's the genius behind the 'Legend of Zelda' soundtracks. This song always brings a tear to my eye. :')

My favorite singer would be Amy Lee from Evanescence. No exceptions or second thoughts, she is my favorite. She has such a powerful and beautiful voice.

And for those of you that have seen ergo proxy, she looks like Re-l Mayer.

@haril I love that game, such a beautiful song :'(

I'm gonna say...
Freddie Mercury.

Or Elvis.

Can't go wrong with either.

@ harilikespizza: Of course it counts. And nice taste in music.

@ Kokiri: What a shocking resemblance that is. The dogs name is Mr.Tadakichi and he is a character from a really funny anime called Azumanga Daioh.

@ AsherTheWilliams: I like Elvis to, but I do not listen to him often. You can show us some music of theirs if you would like to.

I did not know that you liked to listen reggae music lloydSSJ4. I like the fact that reggae music is slow and easy to listen to. However I myself do not listen to it often because I dislike the vocals of many reggae singers.
lloydSSJ4, here is a reggae dubstep remix by NUMA CREW that I like.

I have no favorite singer. But I will show you one of the best. Akino Arai is a Japanese singer, song-writer, and lyricist. You may have heard of her because she is best known for her works in anime such as Outlaw Star, Noir, Macross Plus, and many others. Below is one of her pieces of work.

Soundtrack: Noir Original Soundtrack 1
Song title: Kirei na Kanjou
Vocals, lyrics, and composition: Akino Arai

I just enjoy listening to this song.

Soundtrack: Noir Original Soundtrack 1
Song Title: Canta per me
Composer: Yuki Kajiura

lol, AsherTheWilliams. I want to hear the songs that you are interested in. I want to hear the songs that everyone is interested in. We as sentient beings are curious creatures.

That song (Surrender) by Elvis Presley was a nice song that I enjoyed listening to. The beginning of that song is similar to the beginning of the theme song for James Bond.

Claudio Sanchez from Coheed and Cambria is definitely one of my favorites as well as Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio. But with true down to earth voices, the winners in my book are Sam Cooke, Bob Marley, and Freddie Mercury.

Josh Groban :)

I just love his voice, especially those high parts of the songs:)
And he's a really nice guy, with great sense of humour. I've seen one his concert live and it was amazing to hear him this way.

The other song I love is Voce existe mim:

Without question, Whitney Houston. I've been a fan of hers from the beginning and I truly think she has the best voice ever as far as female singers go. To me, she was able to take from the ones that came before her like Lena Horne, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, and Aretha Franklin, combine them all and with her unique voice really change how music was going for female singers in the 1980s.

She brought back singing for women and ended up birthing a generation of singers after her. Unfortunately, most of them haven't studied music and singing in the same manner that she did, so their work doesn't reach the same level or anywhere near it, but they try.

Oh, I forgot about Evanescence - I love this music.

But tell me one thing. What do you like with Lady Gaga? What makes people to like her so much?

Lady Gaga is actually talented. I've seen her without the garb and just on a piano and a microphone. She can carry a tune, but she is an amazing pianist. However, I won't pay much attention or even attempt to take her seriously until she decides to take her music the same way.

When she writes a real album worth listening to and stops hiding behind the costumes, I'll be the first to give it a listen.

You see. DOn't you think it's actually unfair (I don the same) that we judge by the way she looks like not by what she does? And they say what you look like doesn't matter, mwahaha.
I try no to believe (or even read) what they write about celebrities. But still it has influence on my choices - music ones and film ones too.

It's fine to judge someone whom you have evidence to support as to how he or she acts. It's unfair to judge someone whom you don't know and don't have any information to support his or her behavior.

I am RTSender, and I am intolerant of prejudice.

I'm going to jump on a massive bandwagon here and say Hozier. I love the lyrics of all the songs on his latest album, and I listen to it straight through all the time. It's clear that he puts his heart and soul into everything he writes, and he has an incredible talent for just expressing what it's like to be human. That, combined with his resonant, soulful, and unique voice, makes him my favorite right now.

I imagine my favorite musician to have either a mullet, long beard or hairy chest adorning a thick, gold chain. It seems like we're going back in time, perhaps to the 70's and 80's when most male musicians sported the above. But since we don't live during that time period, let's take a look at what today's indie music scene can present us. If I'd have to choose one singer/musician who can sing well and hold style cues from that time period, it would be none other than the French artist - Sebastien Tellier.

You don't have to know who he is, chances are you've heard his music in airports, airplanes, motorcar and fragrance commercials. A combination of electropop with a dash of indie-folksy weirdness thrown in for good measure.

This is a really hard one. I listen to all genres of music (except screamo) type music where I can't even understand the lyrics. My favorite song as well as artist change on a daily basis. having said that, my favorite at the moment would have to be Nickleback. This was a band I pretty much grew up with and seeing their newer songs just made me realize why I loved them in the first place!

My favorite musician would be Marty Friedman. Forerly from Megadeth and Cacophony and then started his own thing. Amazing composer and guitarist.

I do listen to a lot of Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, Paul Gilbert and John Petrucci. I really can't pick my favorite from these four since I love them all the same way. I like how they play their pieces and how really different they all are from each other. When I play games, I listen a lot of Paul Gilbert, most of the time it's Scarified or Technical Difficulties played on a loop. I love listening to Hendrix when I wake up and Clapton and Petrucci when I'm about to sleep.

Uh, I hate sticking to one favorite, so here's a shortlist.

Michael Jackson, Suzanne Vega, The Beatles, Evanescence, and Florence and the Machine.
