All I can come up with are Lisa Gerrard and Elizabeth Fraser. Can (the band)?

(Jody Foster did an incredible job with idioglossia in "Nell", She should have won the Oscar.)

Have you ever tried? It seems like it would be liberating.

When I sing in English, I think, it counts as personal language...

Early Sunnyday Real Estate was kinda like that, but there was actual English in the singer's own phonetic weirdness. The second album was rushed to completion because the band broke up, and it was eventually admitted, many years later, that a lot of the words on that album were actually nonsense because lyrics hadn't been written and they were out of time. Made for some wild interpretation over the years.

Nosfell in his first album (I have not listen to his more recent works, thus I don't know about those)
Here is a live:

Great singer, great arrangements, nice cello and guitar playing, like it.

It is supposed to be a weird personnaly personnalized mix of frenglich and others.

And edit: seing "Deep Purple"s post about Magma, there is this band: Koenji Hyakkei, inspired by Magma, and singing in its own "Zeul". Here is this live video:

Best drummer evaaa (Tatsuya Yoshida)

Have a good day!

Peter Gabriel used to record his demos in 'Gabrielese' before he had written proper lyrics.

Sometimes he kept the gibberish, like here. Probably wouldn't have been as emotive with real words:

I wrote a program to generate random lyrics in my own randomly generated language. I only recorded one song using that technique though... I sounded like a complete idiot! :oops: :lol:
