* The first Music/FooFighters album was performed entirely (guitar, drums, bass, and vocals) by Dave Grohl, with the exception of one guitar part played by Greg Dulli on the song "X-Static". He only assembled a band after the fact.

* Music/ToddRundgren is another example of the "solo artist who plays all instruments on an album" variant. The first three sides of ''Music/SomethingAnything''? Everything you hear is him. He also did this on ''Faithful'' and some of his other albums. He also has an example with his band Utopia, which became more of a collaborative project as it went further on, but was still undeniably Rundgren's project. (The band's first album was entitled ''Todd Rundgren's Utopia'', which is a pretty big indicator right there). His earlier bands Runt and Nazz were also examples; indeed, the former's two albums are frequently categorised as Rundgren solo albums.

** Other examples include Music/{{Bathory}} (on several albums including much of the best-known "Viking metal" output), Music/{{Panopticon}}, Gnaw Their Tongues, Hellveto, Nae'blis, early Windir, [=ColdWorld=], Petrychor, Botanist, The Ruins of Beverast, Mirrorthone, Graveland, Ildjarn, Paysage d'Hiver, Music/{{Leviathan}}[=/=]Lurker of Chalice, Xasthur, and so on. (Note that some of these bands, like Botanist and the Ruins of Beverast, have extra members for live appearances, but all the instruments and vocals on studio albums are performed by one person). One-man bands may be particularly common in BlackMetal due to the often misanthropic and solitary nature of the genre. The list could go even further if you included all the examples of bands where the main creative force works with a bunch of studio musicians (Anti, Vintersorg, Music/{{Ihsahn}}, and Abbath are four examples that are dead giveaways, since the band name and the pseudonym of the main member are identical).

* Music/PorcupineTree started out as Music/StevenWilson's solo project, with him singing, writing the songs, and playing nearly every instrument, but he eventually hired other musicians to play bass, drums and keyboards (he sings and plays guitar now), and the other guys have been contributing to the songwriting recently.

* Music/PrefabSprout has only one ''de facto'' member by now: Singer and songwriter Paddy [=McAloon=]. The only reason why he didn't put the Sprout name on his solo album ''I Trawl The Megahertz'' was that it was too experimental.

* Music/{{Prince}} was famous as a solo artist, but on his first four albums he played all or almost all of the instruments, and continued doing so for many songs on later albums, so he still qualifies for this trope.

* [[Music/DevinTownsend Strapping Young Lad]] started out as effectively Devin Townsend and some other guys. Some of them are famous in their own right (Gene Hoglan), but nearly all the songwriting was Townsend's. The other members started to offer more input on later albums. Ocean Machine's sole album plays this even more straight; it is now frequently labelled a Townsend solo album. So does Punky Brüster's album, although that was a FakeBand to begin with. Later bands of Townsend's would usually also play this trope 100% straight, including EgocentricTeamNaming (Devin Townsend Band, Devin Townsend Project, etc.). An exception can be found with Casualties of Cool, which is a 50/50 collaboration between Townsend and Ché Aimee Dorval.
