Ferras’ first album, He has since co-written several songs for artists including Adam Lambert and The Veronicas, and is currently working on his next album which he hopes to release in 2011. His debut album, was released in 2006 and the music video for the lead single “All Over Your Face” turned out to be too controversial to be aired on Logo due to the explicit lyrics and sexual themes.
Known for his untrained and distinct baritone voice, Merritt has been dubbed “the most miserable man in rock” due to his bitter, ironic, and often humorous take on love.
Known in music circles as a “gay synth-pop” group, The Magnetic Fields consist of one gay male artist (Merritt), one lesbian (Claudia Gonson), one straight female (Susan Amway, who is no longer with the group), and two straight males (Sam Davol and John Woo).
And what does openly gay Ferras look for in a mate? Best known for his gay and bisexual-themed lyrics, as well as his sexual videos which often feature cameos by New York-based transsexual icon Amanda Lepore, Cazwell’s influences range from the Notorious B. The video for Cazwell’s comical single “I Seen Beyonce at Burger King” went viral in 2008 and in 2010 Cazwell released the video for “Ice Cream Truck”, which the called “the summer’s raunchiest music video.” Featuring a pack of half-naked chiseled go go boys, it’s no surprise the video gained over one million views in its first week.
It seems Cazwell certainly knows what gay men like.
He says he likes “a man who can be vulnerable, share his insecurities, be in the moment and be very honest and authentic. That’s a really, really hot quality.” The Texas born Brannan has been compared to Rufus Wainwright for his openness as a gay artist, and has been compared to Ani Di Franco and Joni Mitchell for his craftiness with songwriting, possessing the qualities of an “angry, sad woman.” In 2002, after just one semester of college in Ohio, Brannan set out for New York City hoping to break into the entertainment industry.
He quickly landed a role in the film and got the chance to add his own song “Soda Shop” to the movie’s Soundtrack.
