Bio

Cee Lo Green is an American singer-songwriter, rapper, record producer and actor who came to prominence as a member of the southern hip hop group Goodie Mob, later launching a critically acclaimed solo career and forming Gnarls Barkley with DJ/producer Danger Mouse.

Best known for his hits Crazy and Forget You, the endlessly inventive Green has spent his career pushing hip-hop and soul's creative envelope.

With his velvety vocals and trademark Southern-fried accent, the Atlanta based artist - born Thomas DeCarlo Calloway - was the standout member of the Atlanta hip-hop collective Goodie Mob.

He left the group in 1999, making his solo debut with 2002's ambitious Cee Lo Green & His Perfect Imperfections. That highly influential album was followed two years later by Cee Lo Green Is... The Soul Machine.

In 2006, Cee Lo teamed with Danger Mouse to create the duo Gnarls Barkley, and made history with their hit single Crazy. The track was the first single to reach #1 in the U.K. through downloads alone, while in the U.S., it scored major play at eight different radio formats, placing it on the most-ever radio airplay charts in a single week.

Crazy went on to win a Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance, while the dynamic duo's platinum-certified full-length debut, St. Elsewhere, received the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album.

Gnarls Barkley returned in 2008 with The Odd Couple, which garnered international acclaim and four Grammy Award nominations.

Cee Lo has also been one of popular music's most in-demand guest artists, lending his voice to hit tracks by the likes of TLC, OutKast, Diddy, Santana, Common, and the Pussycat Dolls - with whom he co-wrote and produced 2005's worldwide #1 hit, Don't Cha (feat. Busta Rhymes).

In 2010, Cee Lo rebooted his solo career with his latest album, Lady Killer. His single Forget You was an instant hit, registering over two million plays in less than a week on YouTube.

In 2010, Cee Lo received five Grammy nominations for Forget You, and won for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.

In 2011 he joined the reality singing competition The Voice as one of the four judges/coaches.
