The English singer and lyricist, Steven Patrick Morrissey is famously known as “Morrissey”. Born in 1959, Morrissey gained popularity in the 80s as a member of a band, The Smiths, where he played the vocals and wrote lyrics. The band became fairly popular in the United Kingdom but disbanded in 1987. The break-up of the band marked the beginning of this determined artist’s solo career, which started with a bang. He made it to the UK Singles Chart on ten occasions, ranking amongst top ten. His debut album titled Viva Hate was released in 1988 and entered the UK albums chart at number one position. The album not only gained popularity in the United Kingdom only but the United States as well. It became a certified gold record by the ‘Recording Industry Association of America’. His second album titled Kill Uncle enjoyed great success as well. On its release, the album ranked at number eight on the ‘UK charts’. The songs "Our Frank" and "Sing Your Life" made it to the singles charts and ranked at number twenty-six and thirty-three respectively.
Morrissey is known for his unique baritone vocal style. His lyrics are defined as somewhat dramatic. His compositions reflect his feelings about his doomed relationships, loneliness and his past. This celebrity is widely known as an innovator in indie music. As per the music magazine NME, Morrissey is regarded as “one of the most influential artists ever".
