Who fits your range the closest?

I've been practicing a lot and my voice has massively improved (it's at least tripled in range)! So I've been practicing to a lot of band's songs and I"ve found that I have a little better range than "Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)" but I still need to practice a little to hit a few notes from "House of Heroes (Tim Skipper, Colin Rigsby, AJ Babock, Jared Rigsby)". Tim Skipper has an absolutely INSANE range... but I've almost got to where I can hit most of their songs (Except I'm working on that highest not from "Serial Sleepers")

So who, fits your range the best?

my range is very close to Lynda Randall - alto but I am a terrible soloist.

I've been told my voice is similar to Twila Paris.

My range seems to be nearly identical to that of Jason Wade of Lifehouse... Close to Jon Foreman of Switchfoot. I used to have a higher top end, when I was singing more. I used to be able to get up there in Reese Roper of FIF's high range. I can not quite get there on his higher songs right now.

I'd say my range is very similar to David Crowder. I used to be able to sing a lot higher, but then I learned how to sing and realized I only THOUGHT I could hit those notes

I can hit Reese Roper stuff!!! You just really have to be warmed up and relaxed...

It just bugs me that I'm having trouble with this note...

This at 1:55... I can hit all of their stuff except that ONE NOTE!!!

How were you singing it? In a properly placed belt... or something else?

Honestly, if you learn the right technique you can expand your range DRASTICALLY! I remember before I learned how to do it properly (which came about from a lot of praying) I had trouble hit most notes... but now since I've learned the proper way to do it... I can hit anything I want to... except that one note in that HOH song...

No band can live up to my tone.

In all honesty, I'm horrible at singing, though I'm not too bad at singing with Sanctus Real and Lifehouse.

You tell me. That's a rough recording I made (after a hard days work with hard hat head to prove it) of a new song I'm writing. I've been compared to a lot of singers but I think I'm a bit weak over all.

On a good day I can keep up with Rob Rock's "spirit in the sky" until that last line in the song that goes into outer space lol.

YouTube - Rob Rock: Spirit In The Sky

I can keep up with "some" stryper material as well but im most comfortable down in Christian Liljegren range when he sings for Divinefire

Actually pretty good. Some notes in the beginning were a little pitchy because I think you were a little to far down in your range and not moving enough air for those lower notes. The rest was fairly solid. The timbre of your voice is very nice as well, I hear a little bit of the guy from Jars of Clay, I also hear a little bit of something that reminds me of Michael Sweets latest solo albums. I think if you moved the song up just one half step at least it would sound better overall but that just my opinion.

Whoa! I've never gotten a comparison to Sweet. That's FUNNY! My pastor is the biggest Stryper fan in the world and I'm always joking him for it. He'll get a kick out of hearing that.

Well I was thinking of his later stuff that doesnt really sound like stryper, like the truth album. You should check it out, not stryperish at all and very good vocals.
