Brendon Boyd Urie (born on 12 April, 1987, Las Vegas, Nevada) is an American musician and the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and pianist of Panic! at the Disco. He also plays drums, bass guitar, accordion, organ and cello.

Career

His musical career began when he met Brent Wilson during guitar classes which they shared. Consequently, Wilson asked Urie to try out as lead guitarist for Panic! at the Disco, as they were looking for a replacement at the time. Originally, Urie was not the band's lead singer; the position had belonged to Ryan Ross. However, when the band heard him sing backup during a rehearsal when Ross was unable to sing due to a cold, they were impressed with his vocal abilities and unanimously decided to make him the singer. [1]

Since then, Panic! at the Disco have released two studio albums with Urie as lead vocalist. A Fever You Can't Sweat Out was released in 2005 and their sophomore record, Pretty. Odd. in 2008.

Other projects

Since joining Panic! At the Disco, Brendon Urie has been involved in songs and music videos by many of his friends and labelmates, as well as other projects. Urie provided guest vocals alongside Patrick Stump on The Cab's song "One Of THOSE Nights" from their debut album, Whisper War. [2] Urie also appeared on Razia's Shadow, a musical created by the band Forgive Durden, with whom Panic! At The Disco has toured and become close friends with. [3] Past touring keyboardist Eric Ronick also got Urie involved with the song "Plans and Reveries" from his band, Black Gold.

Urie has also been involved with several songs by labelmates, friends, and mentors Fall Out Boy. He sang alongside other labelmates on "What A Catch, Donnie" and provided vocals for "20 Dollar Nose Bleed" off of Fall Out Boy's most recent album, "Folie à Deux". [4]Urie is also said to have sang back vocals on the track "7 Minutes In Heaven" off of Fall Out Boy's "From Under The Cork Tree".[5]

In 2008, Brendon Urie became involved with a song for the Coca-Cola Company, called "Open Happiness". Urie sings the chorus of the song, which is also features labelmate Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, labelmate Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, Cee-Lo Green and Janelle Monae. The song was written and produced by Butch Walker, co-written by Cee-Lo Green and remixed by Polow Da Don. Urie was also featured as a geeky news reporter in the music video for the song, which was released on July 16th, 2009.[6]

Urie appeared in the music videos "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More Touch Me", "What A Catch, Donnie" and "Headfirst Slide into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet" by Fall Out Boy. Urie appears in the Gym Class Heroes video for the song "Clothes off" alongside fellow bandmate Spencer Smith and former Panic! at the Disco band members Ryan Ross and Jon Walker. The members are seen dancing in animal costumes, and Urie is a dog. Urie also appears in "One of THOSE nights" by The Cab, which also features Ryan Ross, Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump and Spencer Smith.

Brendon recently co-wrote a song with Rivers Cuomo of the band Weezer. Rivers has said that “If Panic! wants it, they have first dibs, but if not, it could work for Weezer. Recently, Urie filmed a spoof of the movie "American Psycho" with Spencer Smith (Also of Panic! At The Disco), Butch Walker and others. Urie has talked about "American Psycho" once before in an interview.
