Guy Pearce (Yes That Guy Pearce!) Sings!?!

Australian actor Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, Memento, Hateship Loveship) has recorded his debut album, Broken Bones, and the music is actually good! Far too often even actors with good voices are ruined by bland or cheesy arrangements, but thankfully Guy Pearce is one of the exceptions. I especially like his new song “Taste,” which pairs his smokey voice with a dark pop arrangement.


Macy Gray: New Song “Hands”

Classic Macy sound, fun, funky pop music, raspy soul vocals. From her new album, The Way.
