Quote of the Day
Bobby had faith in my ability as a singer.
I had no choice but to work hard. I was a straight-A student, went to college, and I loved business. I never thought I was going to be a singer myself.
My mom was a dancer, my dad's a singer and I've always had that kind of music in my life.
I don't know if people feel this way, but I think by nature that when you start off as a young pop singer, they assume that you're a bit pampered, prissy, and precious, or that you live in a bubble and not in the real world. For me that's not the case.
In the life of a singer, it's not all triumphs and happy memories; there are days you have to go out there when it's the last thing you feel like doing.
I never thought of myself as a really particularly great singer.
I'm the lead singer of the Beach Boys and an ambassador of this amazing music that touched a generation.
These songs are old friends I have entertained myself with when I'm washing the dishes, driving to the store and walking down the aisles. The ones that you sing when you're driving in the car and as a singer you always go back to them.
When I did it, I was a starving musician in London in a basement flat, but a simple tune with the right singer or the right situation can become very well liked and accepted. I'm only too pleased to say it happened with that one.
The Pleasure Seekers eventually turned into Cradle, when we started writing our own material. My younger sister Nancy was brought in as singer and I kind of stepped aside as main lead singer and concentrated on my instrument.
Whenever I fill out the job description I put 'songwriter,' never 'singer' or 'artist.' Singers come and go.
After this many years of being a lead singer in a touring rock band, I've had my fair share of fun. But those days are long behind me.
A lot of people don't know that I'm a singer - that's my thing, really.
In the future, I see me as being my own artist and definitely not a ballad singer!
When I started really singing I was 17, 18 years old. I used to go around trying to be a singer in the Bronx. My knees would shake but I learned by doing.
I just don't want to be known as the actress who can sing. I want to be known as the singer who can act, too. It's great cross-promotion.
I'm not a singer, and I'm not a brilliant dancer.
I've been getting into Nick Drake lately, the folk singer. Sad, gorgeous stuff.
The word 'no' is a very good word in a singer's repertoire.
Kiri Te Kanawa
I never had the influence of any other singer in my music, so I sounded like myself all the time.

I don't believe that recordings should sound radically better than the artist, I think that's dishonest. For example, I'm not a great singer but if I spent enough time tweaking my vocals, I could sound like one. But I don't, what you hear is pretty much what I sing.
I'm not a good enough singer to pull off the effect.
Everybody would grab a guitar and listen to somebody else and call themselves a folk singer. When they didn't know no more songs, they'd run out of them.
When I go on the road now, which is less than before, but still more than I'd like to, I think of myself primarily as a singer. Not a songwriter, not a celebrity, just a man who likes to sing.

My singing wasn't horrible, but my dancing really made it look silly. It's not like I'm a horrible singer that can't sing. But I don't have the consistency or the presentation skills that a good performer has.
I am not the worst singer.
When we did a lot of that Motown stuff there were four of us on the front line. When we started the evening we'd start from one end of the band and just go along. The lead singer would change all the time. That's the first time that I actually managed to put it into a record.
I'm not really a country singer, although I did make a couple albums and love its simple, straight-from-the-heart approach, but I have always sung a lot of jazz, show tunes, pop tunes, gospel and blues.
It took me a long time to find my voice as a singer, and I'm happy that I did.
