He sings wrong, it's his signature, and on albums, they can give him 20 tries at it. There's no way he'll sing it consistantly on tour. He often sings things down an octave(lamo), and is off pitch. That's his style, though.

Interesting. I've never heard him sing an octave low in live shows.

Yeah, I made it up.
I was basically referring to unconciously singing "ah" instead of "aw," etc.

i see. it rhymes with the term for an interesting occurence- err... never mind

and yeah, i agree. you really have to concentrate on making your mouth make the sounds you mean it to until it becomes a habbit. Jon Foreman should work on this

Yeah, the best way to fix this is to sing in Latin or Italian, some language where you only really have 5 different vowel sounds and no dipthongs.

His technique has definately improved since the first album, but I'm not sure he ever really took voice lessons. Whoc ares, he's amazing.

I don't know the first thing about proper singing. That's why I play guitar. So I never noticed that he was singing "poorly". I did however see RelientK in concert about a year ago and Matt T sounded way off. Kinda a letdown.


Side Note: What are your thoughts on reese ropers singing?

Mmm. I was just thinking about this the last two days. I have been listening to the live final show CD.

I think he reaaaaly stretches his range sometimes. I've seen him sing phenomenally live, though. He is probably my favorite vocalist, so...

hahaha! yeah! nice but yeah he always looks like that when he's straining. can't be good for his voice and he should be using falsetto, but i've never heard him when his voice was shot so i guess whatever works for him

Actually, I like the way he strains for the high notes live...

I also think he is a great singer live.
