Patrick Vaughn Stump (born April 27, 1984), known as Patrick Stump, is an American musician, record producer, actor and music critic, best known as the lead singer/guitarist/composer of Fall Out Boy, an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois. Stump embarked on a solo career as a side-project from Fall Out Boy during its hiatus. He has been credited for being a soulful vocalist suitable for R&B, as well as one of the best voices in pop punk, according to ''Billboard''. With Fall Out Boy he placed singles in the top 10 of the US ''Billboard'' Hot 100 and their 2007 album ''Infinity on High'' reached No. 1 on the ''Billboard'' 200, with two more albums peaking in the top 10. The band toured extensively since their early days and have performed over 1300 shows since their inception in 2001. He has collaborated with an extensive list of artists and has produced albums for other artists including Cobra Starship and Gym Class Heroes. After Fall Out Boy's hiatus in late 2009, Stump released his debut solo album, ''Soul Punk'', on October 18, 2011; on which he wrote all the songs, played all the instruments, as well as handling production and self-funding it. It served as an outlet for the music that he could not make with Fall Out Boy. A remix of "This City" was released as the first single to iTunes and a music video has been created, featuring Lupe Fiasco. ''Soul Punk'' garnered a generally positive critical reception, with critics praising Stump's musical direction, musicianship and creativity, but failed to gain significant commercial success. Stump also released his debut 6-song EP titled ''Truant Wave'' on 22 February 2011. His solo work is a major musical departure from the pop punk sound of Fall Out Boy. His influence by Michael Jackson and Prince among many other artists is evident through his soulful electronic sound, which he coined as "soul punk". He has toured in the US and played some dates in Europe in support of ''Soul Punk'' and ''Truant Wave'', and opened for Panic! at the Disco on their month-long US fall tour which began on October 9, 2011. On February 4, 2013, Fall Out Boy announced a surprise comeback with a new single, album (''Save Rock and Roll'') and tour.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
