Who Is Brendon Urie?
Brendon Boyd Urie, born on April 12, 1987, is an American singer, songwriter, and musician.
He is most recognised for his work as Panic! at Disco’s former leader and lead vocalist, where he was the only band member for the whole of the group’s 19-year existence.
Urie’s career in music began when his bandmates decided to make him the lead singer after first considering him for the role of guitarist. Millions of copies of his songs have been sold, and they have charted well on the Billboard charts.
When Urie was two years old, his family relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada from St. George, Utah, where he was born. He comes from a family of five and is the youngest. His mother is of Polynesian descent.
Urie was brought up in an LDS (Latter-Day Saints) family, but he decided to renounce his religion at the age of 17 since he didn’t agree with its philosophies.
He was a student at Palo Verde High School in Las Vegas, where he took guitar lessons and ran across future Panic! bassist Brent Wilson.
Urie was called by Wilson to audition for his band as a substitute guitarist, but once the band heard him sing during a rehearsal, they decided to make him the main vocalist. In 2004, he formally became a member of Panic! at the Disco.
Panic! at the Disco put out seven studio albums under Urie’s direction, including “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out” (2005), which saw major success because of the smash song “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.”
Urie increased his lyrical responsibilities on the band’s second album, “Pretty. Odd.” (2008), and his song “New Perspective” was included on the soundtrack for the movie “Jennifer’s Body.”
The group’s biggest sales week and first number-one album were both achieved with their fifth studio album, “Death of a Bachelor” (2016).
In addition to his work with Panic! at the Disco, Urie has taken part in a number of other musical endeavours.
He contributed his vocals to The Cab’s “One of THOSE Nights” and has frequently collaborated with Fall Out Boy, lending his voice to their tracks “What a Catch, Donnie” and “20 Dollar Nose Bleed.” In addition to pursuing solo projects, Urie has worked with musicians including Dillon Francis and Lil Dicky.
Urie has appeared in music videos for Fall Out Boy and Gym Class Heroes in addition to his singing career. He also played the title character of Charlie Price in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Kinky Boots” in 2017.
Urie and Sarah Orzechowski began dating in 2009 and got married in 2013. He has been outspoken about his sexual orientation, calling himself pansexual and affirming his love for all people.
In addition to speaking up about his own difficulties with ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), Urie has been a supporter of mental health awareness.
Urie started Twitch in 2015 and has since broadcasted a variety of stuff for his followers. He stated in January 2023 that Panic! at the Disco would be ending in order for him to devote more time to his family and that he and his wife were expecting their first child.
