Muted attention-grabbing. Interview with Jose Gonzalez

A velvet voice, complemented by a filigree guitar playing, sounding on several albums. Swedish singer Jose González seems to be an artist who cares little about the attention of the general public.

But there are guys among them who have proved that they are capable of musical exploits and beyond collective creativity. BritishWave.ru selected 10 frontmen who also showed great performance in solo roles.

It is not surprising that it was the magnificent frontman of the reunited Blur, Damon Albarn, who opened our selection. We know Damon also from third-party projects like Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad and Continue reading
