About Greg Dulli
With a distinctively dark and powerful vocal presence, Greg Dulli is best known as the singer for Cincinnati shadowy grunge rockers the Afghan Whigs. With a career spanning over 30 years, Dulli fronted the Whigs through several phases, as well as working as a producer and a solo artist, with his official studio debut, Random Desire, slated for an early 2020 release.
Greg Dulli was born in Hamilton, Ohio, in 1965. His Roman Catholic upbringing would inspire some of the later lyrical themes and imagery he repeatedly returned to in his music. As the vocalist for the Afghan Whigs, Dulli's seething baritone that sometimes broke into a breathy yowl guided albums built around songs of lust, betrayal, addiction, and revenge. The band split up first in 2001 and Dulli kept busy with the Twilight Singers, a collective he initially formed in 1997 as a side project. In addition to work with that shifting entity, Dulli appeared on tracks by Foo Fighters and Lo Fidelity Allstars, as well as working as a producer and doing occasional solo shows.
The Afghan Whigs reunited in 2011, and after recording new albums with the re-formed band, Dulli began work on his first proper solo album in 2017. He looked to self-sufficient artists like Prince and Todd Rundgren when writing the material for the album, choosing to write all the various parts himself while in the demo process. The finished product, Random Desire, was readied for a February 2020 release.
