  • The lead vocalist in popular music is typically the member of a group or band whose voice is the most prominent melody in a performance where multiple voices may be heard. The lead singer sets their voice against the accompaniment parts of the ensemble as the dominant sound. In vocal group performances, notably in soul and gospel music, and early rock and roll, the lead singer takes the main vocal melody, with a chorus or harmony vocals provided by other band members as backing vocalists. Lead vocalists typically incorporate some movement or gestures into their performance, and some may participate in dance routines during the show, particularly in pop music. Some lead vocalists also play an instrument during the show, either in an accompaniment role (such as strumming a guitar part), or playing a lead instrument/instrumental solo role when they are not singing (as in the case of lead singer-guitar virtuoso Jimi Hendrix). The lead singer also typically guides the vocal ensemble and band with visual cues to indicate changes of tempo or dynamics, stops or pauses, and the starts of new sections (unless there is also a conductor onstage, as with a big band or unless an instrumentalist bandleader is providing this role). The lead vocalist also typically speaks to the audience between songs, to give information about the songs (such as who wrote them or why it was chosen), introduce the band members, and develop a rapport with the audience. The lead vocalist may also play a leadership role in rehearsals, unless there is a bandleader who takes on this role. If the lead singer is a singer-songwriter, she or he may write some or all of the lyrics or create entire songs (including chords and melodies). Examples of a lead vocalist in rock music are Freddie Mercury from Queen and Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones. Similarly in soul music, Smokey Robinson was the lead singer of The Miracles. There may be two or more lead vocalists in a band who rotate singing lead between songs or within songs, such as with The Beatles or Fleetwood Mac, or two or more vocalists may share lead vocals on the same lines, as was often the case with ABBA.

  • 리드 보컬리스트(Lead vocalist)는 노래의 메인 보컬을 담당하는 음악 그룹의 보컬리스트를 가리킨다. 보통 하나 이상의 악기를 연주할 수 있거나, 보통은 그룹의 리더로서, 종종 대중과 인터뷰 전에 대변인 역할을 맡는다. 그래서 때로 리드보컬을 리더라고 부른다. 원래는 밴드의 메인 보컬을 뜻하던 말이었으나, 대한민국에서는 아이돌 그룹의 경우 노래의 전반부와 코러스와 리드를 맡는 보컬을 리드 보컬이라고 부르고 노래의 하이라이트나 고음, 후렴을 담당하는 보컬을 메인 보컬이라 하여 구분하는 경향이 있다. (ko)
  • De leadzanger(es), frontman of frontvrouw is een zanger of zangeres in een muzikale groep (zoals een koor of rockband), die de leidende (eerste) stem (de melodie) van het stuk zingt. Deze melodie heet derhalve ook wel de lead. De leadzanger wordt ook als de solist aangeduid. Naast de leadzanger heeft een groep vaak achtergrondzangers die de leadzanger begeleiden terwijl hij of zij zingt, in tegenstelling tot een voorzanger die in de vorm van vraag-en-antwoord (als antifoon) met het koor zingt. In een rock-, pop- of jazzband speelt de leadzanger soms ook een instrument, meestal gitaar. De zanglijn van de leadzanger wordt met een Engelse term lead of lead vocals genoemd. (nl)
