Lately I've been obsessing with not-so-well known singers...such as Russell Watson and Peter Cincotti. Is anyone familiar with these guys, or have any others that I might enjoy? I'm trying to get away from my secular music roots, I hear enough of that crap at work. Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.

Thanks,

Other legit voices:

Andrea Bocelli
Franco Corelli
Josh Groban
Anthony Warlow

Pop voices:

Jason Mraz
Rachelle Farrell (sp?)


I don't know if that's the sort of thing you're looking for or not, but that may help.

thanks for those tmitm, I actually own EVERY Andrea Bocelli cd in print, and both of Josh Groban's and Jason Mraz's as well. (yeah, I'm a CD freak...2400 and counting)

OK...then try these on for size:

Michael Buble and Jane Monheit (my favorite new jazz voices)

also, for sort of a more legit sound, try Mario Frangoulis and Joshua Payne.

I do also own Michael Buble's album as well...but I love it too. Have you ever heard of Matt Dusk? He's pretty swell for a jazz musician. Or Brian Culbertson if you like jazz with very limited vocals.

Yes, he is a looker.

His sound is very Sinatra (like most of these young ones). But, his sound is a little more lyrical. I dig.

I'm pretty sure she's well known in the opera world, but if you like legit voices, have you listened to Natalie Dessay?

I've actually heard great things about Darren's solo stuff. I met him after a SG show a few years back...he's a hell of a nice guy.

i have spin his first solo cd, and he just released a new one, but not in the US, so i'm trying to decide if i really want to get it (which i do, but i'm in college and it's like $20 on amazon... and i just ordered adam's new cd, so ya know...) but you should totally check out spin. it's definitely worth it.

Natalie Dessay is great. I got to see her do La Sonnambula a couple weeks ago, and was thoroughly impressed. Her first big aria ends with like a high E, and she did it whiole twirling around in circles with her arms out. Kind of awesome, really. And showy...the way I like my opera singers. =)

I love Joss Stone, Rath. I have yet to purchase her album, but I will be soon. There's actually a couple "pop-jazz" artists I'm digging right now too...Jamie Cullum and Toby Lightman. Both very good and put a different spin on the usual jazz/pop sound.

Cool. I haven't seen it. But she did sing "Over The Rainbow" when I saw her last year.

I would suggest Ashley Gearing. She is country but uhh, good singer.
