How guys (and girls) can have both great range and great power, even up high

03-Get More Power and Range


Both guys and girls want to be able to sing more high notes with full power.  But it seems like less and less singers are able to do it like the rock stars of the 70’s like Kansas and Foreigner.

So why could they do it?  That’s what we narrow down in this episode.

 

Bob asked:

In their heyday, Lou Gramm (Foreigner) and Steve Walsh (Kansas) had similar voices.  Their voices seemed to have the same attributes: power and chestiness up top, a strong head voice/falsetto, rich tone (somewhat operatic), vowel shades of ‘ooo’ and ‘uh’ in their sound, full voice all the way up past C5 and voices that could sit up high.  What would you say accounts for their power and tone?

 

And I answered by sharing details about:

  • Falsetto: what it is…and what it’s not (plus why we may be wrong when we think we’re singing in falsetto)
  • What is responsible for the tone of a voice; singing with ‘one voice’ without sounding different on low or high notes
  • Where vocal power (on any note) comes from and some of the wrong ways we try to get at it
