Cee Lo Green
About Me: 
Singer. Rapper. Producer. Songwriter. Known far and wide as one half of Grammy Award-winning superstar duo Gnarls Barkley, the endlessly inventive Cee Lo Green has spent his career pushing hip-hop and soul’s creative envelope. With his velvety vocals and trademark Southern-fried accent, the ATL-based artist – born Thomas DeCarlo Calloway – was the flamboyant standout of the Atlanta hip-hop collective, Goodie Mob. He left the group in 1999, making his solo debut with 2002’s ambitious Cee Lo Green & His Perfect Imperfections. That highly influential album was followed two years later by the more accessible – though equally adventurous – Cee Lo Green Is… The Soul Machine.

Bio: 
Singer. Rapper. Producer. Songwriter. Known far and wide as one half of Grammy Award-winning superstar duo Gnarls Barkley, the endlessly inventive Cee-Lo Green has spent his career pushing hip-hop and soul’s creative envelope. With his velvety vocals and trademark Southern-fried accent, the ATL-based artist – born Thomas DeCarlo Calloway – was the flamboyant standout of the Atlanta hip-hop collective, Goodie Mob. He left the group in 1999, making his solo debut with 2002’s ambitious Cee-Lo Green & His Perfect Imperfections. That highly influential album was followed two years later by the more accessible – though equally adventurous – Cee-Lo Green Is… The Soul Machine. In 2006, Cee-Lo teamed with multi-instrumentalist/producer Danger Mouse and as Gnarls Barkley they made history with “Crazy.” The track was the first single to reach #1 in the UK through downloads alone, while in the U.S., it scored major play at eight different radio formats, placing it on the most-ever radio airplay charts in a single week. “Crazy” went on to win a Grammy Award for “Best Urban/Alternative Performance,” while the dynamic duo’s platinum-certified full-length debut, St. Elsewhere, received the Grammy for “Best Alternative Music Album.” Gnarls Barkley returned in 2008 with The Odd Couple, which garnered international acclaim and four Grammy Award nominations. Cee-Lo has also been one of popular music’s most in-demand guest artists, lending his voice to hit tracks by the likes of TLC, OutKast, Diddy, Santana, Common, and the Pussycat Dolls, with whom he co-wrote and produced 2005’s worldwide #1 hit, “Don’t Cha (Feat. Busta Rhymes).”
Bio2: 
In 2010, Cee-Lo is rebooting his own amazing solo career with his Elektra debut, Lady Killer. Recorded with a star-studded cast of producers that includes Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse), Jack Splash (Alicia Keys, Missy Elliot, Jamie Foxx), and Fraser T. Smith (Nelly Furtado, James Morrison, Ellie Goulding), the album is psychedelic hip-hop soul the way only Green can cook it.
