Default 99 Most Underrated Voices in Music

Here is a list of people that I think are sometimes overlooked when it comes to their vocals, in no set order.



#99 - Jarvis C0cker


Pulp's front man and Michael Jackson's rear man. This man can show off his voice both in the studio and live on stage. Whether it is his high squeaks, his 'oooOOOoooOOOh's or his low, creepy whisper, Jarvis' fantastic vocals add a whole new dynamic to his great writing.

Sadly overlooked in his heyday, when most of the attention was focused on Blur, Oasis and the like, he showed that he didn't need to be cool, he could just open his mouth and let his gift do the rest. Pulp are usually remembered for great hits and looking like geeks, but seldom revered for having the best voice in 'Britpop'.

Check out Pulp live at Glastonbury, 1995.

I like his 'tone' and his brilliantly observant lyrics. Vocally he is not the best but JC is as talented and acerbic as Morrissey fo sho.

Not alot of people are as good as Moz, but he has a great voice for pop.

Check out Lisa Gerrard. Was the vocalist for the sublime Dead Can Dance and has also had an extensive solo career. Some may know her as the voice for the Gladiator soundtrack but that would be doing her an extreme disservice to base her career on that work alone. Her most recent album is as a vocalist for Klaus Schulze of Krautrock fame on his last release. Badly underrated and even under appreciated. I caught Lisa live about 18 months ago and was left spellbound by her vocal delivery and depth. I have memories of reading that she had a 5 octave range.

I could fall in love with her voice.

Although I love Perry's work moreso, Gerrard's voice on Seraphim is spellbounding...

Perry has a very underrated voice. His singing on Severance for example is wonderful.
