.38 Special

Genre:Classic RockDemo:35-50,50 +

.38 Special

Initially, .38 Special was one of many Southern rock bands in the vein of the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd; in fact, .38 Special was led by Donnie Van Zant, the brother of Skynyrd's leader, Ronnie Van Zant. .38 Special revamped its sound to fall halfway between country-fried blues-rock and driving, arena-ready hard rock, after releasing a couple of alb...

Al Pacino

Genre:CelebritiesDemo:25-35,35-50,50 +

Al Pacino

Arguably the most exciting actor of his generation, Al Pacino dropped out of The School of Performing Arts at the age of 17 to pursue a career on the boards in earnest, trading the South Bronx of his childhood for the bohemian life of Greenwich Village in the late 1950s and 60s. Having entertained family and friends from an early age with such on-target mimicry as Ray Milland looking for the hidden bottle in "The Lost Weekend", he studied at HB Studio and apprenticed at such avan...

Alabama

Alexander O'Neal

Genre:Hip-Hop & R&BDemo:35-50

Alexander O'Neal

This Minneapolis soul man cut his teeth in the Time but was bounced (for looking "too black") before they signed with Warner Brothers. His tough, ballsy voice has the same grain and range as Otis Redding's. Like that master, Alexander O'Neal is comfortable with pumping dancefloor burners and slinky couch-cuddlers. He's certainly the best singer Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have ever produced, and the strength of his material and his robust ...

Alice Cooper

Genre:Classic RockDemo:25-35,35-50,50 +

Alice Cooper

  Originally, there was a band called Alice Cooper led by a singer named Vincent Damon Furnier. Under his direction, Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical and violent brand of heavy metal that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, heavy metal, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood, and huge boa constrictors, all coordinated by the heavily ma...

Andrae Crouch

Genre:GospelDemo:35-50,50 +

Andrae Crouch

One of the most renowned and widely respected pioneers of contemporary gospel music remains Andrae Crouch. By combining such classic gospel music elements as call-and-response and choir, along with pop songwriting techniques and production, Crouch's style has influenced countless other artists. Born July 1, 1942, in Pacoima, CA, Crouch got his musical start at his father's church, singing, playing piano, and before ten years of age, writing his own so...

Angela Bofill

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:50 +

Angela Bofill

This Bronx native sang with Ricardo Morrero & the Group and the Dance Theater of Harlem chorus before her 1978 debut. With her strong, distinctive alto, she has carved a niche as an outstanding interpreter of soul ballads. Between 1978 and 1984, Bofill had consistent success on the R&B charts, with six albums making the Top 40 (five of which made the Top 100 on the pop charts as well), including two, Angel of the Night (1979) and Too Tough (1983), tha...

Anita Baker

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:35-50,50 +

At the age of sixteen, she was singing with local bands, and in 1975, Anita Baker auditioned for one of Detroit's most popular acts, Chapter 8.

With the help of super-producers Jam & Lewis, the R&B-oriented LP scored a hit with "I'm Here for You."

Annie Lennox

Genre:Adult ContemporaryDemo:25-35,35-50

Annie Lennox

After the Eurythmics dissolved in 1991, Annie Lennox proved herself to be a true survivor, establishing a solo career that was even more successful than the Eurythmics. Born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland, while still a teenager Annie Lennox earned a scholarship to the famed Royal Academy of Music in London. She chose to leave school before completing, and by the late 1970’s, Annie Lennox had encountered Dave Stewart, a guitarist, t...
