The Top 1000 Music Makers of All Time

First posted 1/4/2013; updated 9/7/2017.

There are plenty of best-of lists focused on the greatest artists or acts of all time. There are also specialized lists that look at best singers, songwriters, composers, producers, guitarists, bassists, drummers, keyboardists, pianists, etc. In fact, the DMDB has put together many such specialized lists. The intent of this list, however, is to compile a definitive list of music makers, i.e., anyone involved in making music. This list of 1000 individual music makers (no groups or duos included) covers the gamut of eras, genres, and various contributions to music. Note: individuals with groups named after them are included (examples: Tom Petty of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Charles Adams Prince of Prince’s Orchestra).

This is NOT a ranked list; rather, this is just an alphabetical presentation of the top 1000 music makers. Click here to see a list of the top 100 acts of all time. Click on any of the artists’ names below to see a more detailed entry offering an idea of why this individual made the cut.
