3. Ryan Gosling (Dead Man’s Bones)
Dead Man’s Bones only released one album, in 2009, which was critically well received. The songs feature LA’s Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir. While working on this project with fellow musician Zach Shields, Ryan went under the pseudonym Baby Goose. Adorable.
A sampling: “Name in Stone”
6. Russell Crowe & The Ordinary Fear of God
Russell Crowe has been in a number of bands in the last few decades and this most recent musical project is definitely the softest of the bunch. Let Russell swoon you with his sweet, sweet soft rock.
A sampling: “The Weight of a Man”
7. Jason Schwartzman (Coconut Records)
After Jason Schwartzman left Phantom Planet in 2006, he started his super chill indie pop project Coconut Records. Since his last album was released in 2009, Schwartzman has shifted his focus to composing movie soundtracks under the Coconut Records name.
A sampling: “West Coast”
9. Dennis Quaid and The Sharks
Dennis Quaid and The Sharks play good ol’ Rock ‘n Roll covers, and a few originals. If you want to check ‘em out for yourself it’s easy: a simple Google search for the band leads you to a handy booking request page (if that’s your thing).
A sampling: “Great Balls of Fire”
