Patrick Walker possesses a somewhat untrained sounding lighter baritone voice. As the guitarist and singer for the wonderfully depressing doom metal bands Warning and 40 Watt Sun he's made his mark as a remarkable composer for the genre especially shown in his melodies. He has quite good diction and tone (occasionally a bit nasal and strained though), but prefers to stay within the natural confines of his range making for some quite expressive and emotional singing.

He also has a passion for acting and has done dramatic narration for the bands Orne and Reverend Bizarre where he demonstrated some of his richest lower register work.

I have the "The Inside Room" album, and while Walker's vocals might not be a stand-out feature as other vocalists from the genre like Lowe, Marcollin or Längquist, his "normal, ordinary, plain" voice highlights the sheer honesty and sincerity of his lyrics in a way that no other singer could do. He isn't trying to be a over the top "large ham" with crazy belting or dramatic low singing, he is just baring his soul and demonstrating his feelings to everyone see.

Also, I'm pretty interested in hearing his narraction work (and his sung E2 too). Any Links?
