Retro rocker Lenny Kravitz first emerged at the tail-end of the 1980's, releasing his critically acclaimed debut album Let Love Rule in 1989. Characterized by its funk-rock, flower-power vibe, the album reached the number 61 spot on the Billboard 200 and featured Kravitz on every aspect of the album, from lead and backing vocals, to playing every instrument on recording. This recording style would become his trademark as his sound evolved over time. Known for his retro style, Kravitz often incorporates elements of rock, blues, soul, reggae, funk, jazz, R&B, psychedelic, folk, and pop, creating a sound and energy that is uniquely his own. He has released a total of 11 studio albums to date, winning several prestigious awards for his contributions to music including the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performances four years in a row (1999-2002), breaking the record for most wins in that category. In addition to his prolific career in the music industry, Kravitz has also broken into the acting world, appearing in a handful of box-office hits including The Hunger Games and Zoolander.
