Famous People You Never Knew Were Musicians

Posted by Darrell's Music Hall on November 14, 2018

Everybody has gone to a music class throughout their time in school. For some, those music classes were nothing more than a break from geography and math. For others, those music classes sparked a passion that would follow them throughout their lives. Music acts as an escape from the real world. From guitar to singing to piano in NH, these became ways to express yourself for so many people. These celebrities may be known more for their acting, but they’re also musicians on the side.

Bruce Willis

For years Bruce Willis has been a staple of Hollywood. Whether it was his TV role in Moonlight, his action roles in Die Hard and Pulp Fiction, or his personal life, everybody knows Bruce Willis. Some people don’t know of his pop-blues album, The Return of Bruno. He’s followed it with two more.

Emmy Rossum

Before becoming the household name she is today thanks to her role as Fiona Gallagher on Shameless, Emmy was hitting high-notes alongside Gerard Butler in The Phantom of the Opera. After she proved her voice, she came out with two pop albums: Inside Out in 2007 and Sentimental Journey in 2013.

Maya Rudolph

Keanu Reeves

He’s been in The Matrix, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and the John Wick film series. Keanu Reeves is one of the most nuanced actors in Hollywood and makes a great internet meme thanks to his facial expressions. He’s also played the bass guitar in Dogstar from the years 1991 to 2002.

Kevin Bacon

Kevin Bacon heated up the big screen in the 70’s and 80’s with his performances in Friday the 13th and Footloose.
