Russell Brand

Post  HawkSuddenStrike on Tue Apr 09, 2013 3:42 am

Current status: UNFINISHED



Russell Brand has an interesting tone that, in my opinion, slightly resembles Cedric Bixler-Zavala's. Or maybe it's just the hair... Either way, he may not have recorded a lot songs, but I think he sounds impressive. He has a few covers and an album recorded for the Take Him to the Greek soundtrack in a fictional band called Infant Sorrow.

Voice Type: Tenor (correct me if I'm wrong)
Vocal Range: A2-A#4

Significant High Notes:
A#4 ("Riding Daphne")
A4 ("Just Say Yes", "The Clap", "I Am Jesus")
Ab4 ("We've Got to Do Something", "The Clap")
G4 ("Going Up", "Bangers Beans & Mash")
F#4 ("Furry Walls")

Significant Low Notes:
C3 ("Inside of You", "Going Up")
A2 ("Going Up")

All the songs notewatched
Spoiler:

I've mostly looked out for anything below D3 or above F4
QUESTIONS :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X18KqouItM What is that at 1:00 ? B4? C5?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvzKJDtYB04 0:45 Something seems wrong about that tone at 0:45 on A2, as if it was edited


The following were carefully notewatched:
Infant Sorrow - We've Got to Do Something - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mI4XLhY10VA - 1:50 - Ab4
Infant Sorrow - Inside of You - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNCHcge3B_g - 0:10 - C3
Infant Sorrow - Just say Yes - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X18KqouItM - 2:02 good A4 ; A4 at 0:54, 1:36 and 1:40 ; B4 at 1:00 ????; G4 at 1:20
Infant Sorrow - Gang of Lust - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfIv_NCX9jg - F4 in the chorus and the end
Infant Sorrow - Furry Walls - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1X2bf76wn54 - Nice mellodic F4 at 0:07 ; G4 at 0:16 ; many F#4s during chorus ; 2:50 longer F#4s
Infant Sorrow - Bangers Beans & Mash - www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDPTbZtmv2U - C3 at 0:40 ; many G4s after 2:53
Infant Sorrow - The Clap - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uZQC092ZKc - A4 at 1:10 ; lots of Ab4s throughout the song, for example at 0:20 and 0:28
Infant Sorrow - I am Jesus - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--I2hcFfGlA - A4 at 1:29 ; Nice F#4 and G4 at 0:21 and many more ; G4 at 1:17

I'll finish the rest of the album and the covers when I get the time.

You do realize that this would basically be on the same level as interviewwatching, right?

Very Happy Right... I didn't see it that way. In fact, I remember a thread called "Non-singers". I figured throwing in a few "spoken" notes (although his stand-up highs are rather screamed) wouldn't hurt. Now that I think of it I suppose they wouldn't be very significant, but, frankly, I'm really curious if he's ever sung or spoken in the 5th octave. I wouldn't go hunting for notes all over YouTube, but if I ever come across anything, I'll test it. Smile

Speaking about 5th octave... What is that at 1:00 ? B4? C5? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X18KqouItM

I hear that as a bit of a flat A4. Definitely not a B4 or C5.

Very light singing here, kind of feminine; he's actually a decent singer..... does some weird falsetto.. thing at 3:00, like an impromptu laugh.



Maybe something lower than D3 in the verses? also could be some good 4th octave stuff from 2:53 onward.

Could you please NOT use terms like 'Light Baritone' or 'Low Tenor'? The terms technically don't exist. And besides, if you were to use those voice terms, it'd more than likely cause needless debate that would easily detract from the quality of the thread.
In future reference, if you WOULD like to use a term, go for the simple ones like Bass, Baritone or Tenor OR use a prefix associated with their voice type that is related to their music.
EDIT: Light Baritone does exist in a Classical context, so I apologise for that. But from what I've seen on the forum, Classical terms aren't really used - just the typical Bass, Baritone and Tenor voice type.
I hope this helps.
