The Singing Actor

Can actors sing? That's probably the question raised most after the famous 'chicken or egg first?' doubt. He may not be able to hit those high notes, but Ryan Gosling definitely has a couple tricks up his sleeves. You may recognise him from 'The Notebook', 'Half Nelson', 'Lars and the Real Girl' or as early back as 'Breaker High', being an actor with credibility now he adds the band Dead Man's Bones to that long impressive list. With old friend Zach Shields, the band creates an original sound with a hint of Arcade Fire's grand emotional punch plus a deep dark baritone vocal similar to that of The National, and the use of The Silverlake Conservatory of Music children's choir, the combination is an instant winning formula to keep those indie kids intrigued. The band has just released a dark folk doo-wop number “My Body’s A Zombie For You” and their self-titled debut will be released on October 6th via Anti Records.
