Gwen Stefani – No Doubt
For those that only know Gwen Stefani’s more recent work, you might think of her as something of a mainstream pop singer. But back in the ’90s she was best known as the dynamic frontwoman of No Doubt.
With their roots in ska and punk, No Doubt had smash hits with “Just a Girl” and Don’t Speak”. Much of their success was undoubtably due to Stefani’s on-stage presence and her unique vocal style, which can transition between light and poppy to a more powerful and edgy.
