Bryan Ferry

A Geordie miner’s son turned art-school aesthete, Bryan Ferry’s ecstatic glam rock performances on early Roxy Music stand-outs Virginia Plain and Do The Strand mellowed through his mid-70s solo hits before his voice ripened into a liquid croon on 1982’s Avalon album.

From that point on he became the archetypal velvet-voiced, suit-wearing smoothie, as likely to wrap his warm tones around standards such as As Time Goes By as recall his youth with an album of Bob Dylan covers.
