Under-appreciated (Part 2)

Moving over one spot, I mention some under-appreciated baritone singers:

Doug Anderson. The baritone for EH&SS is one of the finest young singers (or singers of any age for that matter) on the road today. Doug has the potential to go down as one of the all-time greats.

Glen Allred. The long-time baritone from The Florida Boys is much-loved and respected, but still probably doesn't get the credit he deserves. He's been with TFB for over 50 years (with just a short stint as a cabinet maker) and just gets better with age!

Daniel Riley. Although a relative newcomer to the baritone position, Daniel is without a doubt one of the great singers of our time. He can deliver a song with a lot of feeling and yet blow the doors off, too.

Mark Lanier. Probably best known for his time with Perfect Heart, Mark is now singing baritone for Poet Voices. Mark is a great blending baritone as well as a terrific soloist. It's very good to have him back singing with a group!

Tony Peace. I know, he's leaving PSQ... However, I'm hoping he will "pop up" somewhere new before too long. Tony is very under-appreciated and it is hard to understand why! He is a terrific singer and has a great stage presence. He will be missed with PSQ, but he would make any group he joined instantly better.

That's it for baritones. Again not my list of the best (necessarily), but those that I see as under-appreciated.

I would add Jim Brady from the Booth Brothers to your list as well. Jim has a truely beautiful voice and he has an excellent gift of songwriting as well!
