Brandon Flowers is an American musician, singer, songwriter and lyricist. He is best known as the frontman of the Las Vegas-based rock band the Killers. In 2010, Flowers released a solo album, titled Flamingo. He has topped the UK Albums Chart five times, including work by the Killers and is a recipient of the Q Idol Award.
Brandon Flowers responded to an ad that Dave Keuning had placed in the Las Vegas Weekly in late 2001 whereupon they became the Killers. After several short-lived bassists and drummers, Flowers and Keuning were joined by bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci and the line-up became official in August 2002. Between 2003 and 2013 they released four consecutive chart-topping albums and sold more than 25 million albums worldwide. Flowers wrote the lyrics to the single “All These Things That I’ve Done” and its popular refrain “I Got Soul, But I’m Not A Soldier” that numbered among the “100 Greatest Songs of All Time” by The Daily Telegraph and earned one of the band’s seven Grammy nominations.
On July 4, 2010, the Killers headlined the “Salute to the Military” USO Concert at the White House. They performed ‘God Bless America’ and other favorites from their catalogue. On June 22, 2013, the Killers headlined the 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium, their biggest solo show to date.
Canadian-American singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright wrote a song about Flowers called “Tulsa” for his fifth album Release the Stars. Wainwright has stated in numerous interviews that it was inspired by their first meeting at a bar in Tulsa, Oklahoma. According to Wainwright, Flowers was “very flattered and somewhat bashful” about this tribute. Sir Elton John has listed Flowers as one of his top-five heroes while editing The Independent’s World Aids Day special edition. U2’s Bono described Flowers’ voice to The Globe and Mail saying, “We need him on the radio…His voice!” Flowers possesses a tenor vocal range when he sings. – Wikipedia
