  Singer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music a singer or vocalist is a type of musician who uses his or her voice as an instrument to make music.
A lead singer (in barbershop music simply called a lead) is one who sings the primary vocals of a song, as opposed to a backup singer who sings backup vocal(s) to a song or harmonies to the lead singer.
Singers may also be classified according to the style of music they sing, such as soul singers or carnatic vocalists.

 Former Byron Lee and the Dragonaires lead singer, Vic Taylor, dies at 56 - JAMAICAOBSERVER.COM
NEW YORK (AP) -- Vic Taylor, a singer who performed with the Jamaican bands Tommy McCook and the Skatalites and Byron Lee and the Dragonaires, died Monday at age 56, his daughter Vanessa Taylor said.
A Kingstonian by birth, Taylor was a lead singer with Byron Lee and the Dragonaires in the 1970s and '80s, performing songs like My Way and You'll Never Walk Alone, said Errol Gayle, a guitarist with the band.
Long-time Dragonaires bass player, Courtney Robb, remembered Taylor, who had a superb baritone, as the consummate balladeer of the three lead singers the band had at the time, the other two being Keith Lyn and Barry Biggs.

Throughout a decade he's become synonymous with those gravelly vocals and carefully contained rage who has consigned himself to the ongoing fight against racism and suppression whilst flickering between confrontational guises such as The Beatnigs, Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy and his latter incarnate the honeyed soul of Spearhead.
Although the symphonic Spearhead strains may lead fans to believe that Franti has mellowed, nothing could be further from the truth.
The message in the music is as fundamental and imperative today as it was the day he first strutted onto a wooden stage: "To me the message is the whole thing," he declares.

You grow up thinking "noise" is the sound of rage and destruction, of dishes smashing against the wall or screaming voices or cars hitting telephone poles.
Occasional clusters of CD skips appear to remind us that there is computer software in the room, but Lead Singer sounds strangely analog and most certainly live, with a strong dose of room ambience and a recording with such heavy bleeding it may as well be mono.
Most importantly Lead Singer sounds bashed out for the sheer pleasure of it, and the thrill is contagious.

"This whole process, the TV show, was all about finding a new singer so we can do what we do best," guitarist/saxophonist Kirk Pengilly said after the Tuesday morning taping of the show's finale at Los Angeles' CBS Studios.
The show's winner -- and, by definition, INXS' new lead singer -- is Canadian J.D. Fortune, who out-dueled Chicagoan Marty Casey with renditions of the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and INXS' own "What You Need," backed by his bandmates-to-be.
INXS, who formed in 1977 and scored hits in the Eighties and Nineties with singles like "What You Need," "Need You Tonight" and "Suicide Blonde," have been without a permanent singer since charismatic frontman Michael Hutchence was found dead in a Sydney hotel room in 1997.
