The Voices

So I was listening to my music library tonight and I went on a streak I thought was pretty damn cool. That little run got me to thinking, “Who is it I really like listening to?” Not the band, not the music, but the voices, who is it that has something that makes you sit back, or stand up, and listen. The song and the music may not have even been that good, but that voice grabs at you. With a little help, thanks Devlin, here is “The List“. In no particular order, these are in my library somewhere.  Agree? Disagree? Have some additions?
