I d love to listen to Polish singers whose styles are similar to :

Bob Dylan,Leonard Cohen, in English
Jacques Brel Georges Brassens,Barbara in French
Vladimir Vissotsky, Boulat Okoudjava in Russian

You know what i mean, classical or folk singers whose songs have nice lyrics, poetic Polish words, Polish singers who are viewed as singing poets.

Old or recent does not matter.

Thank you for your recommendations

I also recommend a famous blues band Dżem.

Kazik Staszewski performing songs of his father Stanisław. Also many songs by Kult (whose vocalist is Kazik) resembles the Russian style of singing, however it's rather a rock music.

Maybe it would be easier to name some of them:

Komu bije dzwon
Królowa życia
Knajpa morderców
Polska
Baranek

Yes, Kazik Staszewski and his father have brilliant lyrics. Budka Suflera and Dżem also, although they are probably not what Lwowska wants.
More soft and poetic - Martyna Jakubowicz:

I think you could also take a look at Republika/Grzegorz Ciechowski, various projects of Tymon Tymański, possibly Myslovitz, maybe Tilt/Tomasz Lipiński...

This is more a style that I like when not headbanging..I like bluesy romantic music sung in smooth heldentenor ranges

OK.

The first singer who appeared on Polish TV before the war was Mieczysław Fogg. He continued singing after the war too and did it for a few decades with unwavering popularity.

An amazing person coz he took part in Polish wars of the time as a soldier or artist.

Here performing the famous song Silence (the one with trumpet motif, you know):

And now his most famous song: Autumn Roses. You can guess it is a bit sad and nostalgic...... :):)

PS. The joke from 20th century was that Polish archeologists dug out a mummy in Egypt which woke up and asked: Does Fogg still sing??? hahahaha



Autumn roses, sad tea roses.
Autumn roses are like your beloved lips.
The purple trees are the last to give us shelter
. And hearts beat like a bell, in one tone.

Autumn roses whisper quietly about separation.
Autumn roses tell us about goodbye.
And in a cloud of leaves we walk through the wilderness of the park.
Autumn roses are already withering.

It was May so recently, we were so happy,
smiling and tender, who will revive these days again?
Give me a cool hand, look me in the eye and tell me
Do you love me, I know, it's an illusion and a dream
