Brad Roberts is perhaps best known (as Sandblasted has put it) as Mr. Low Larynx himself! Being the singer for Canadian folk rock band Crash Test Dummies for roughly 25 years he has developed one of the most well known low ranges in popular music.

Still much note watching to be done.

F4s in the chorus of 'Afternoons and Coffee Spoons'. First one is at 1:41.

Their recording of 'The First Noel' has strong F2s.

A bunch of F#4s starting at 1:30 in a throaty but clean voice. Some rough singing that sounds a bit like Eddie Vedder. And a run down to an okay D2.

I happen to know this man's live album by heart. It's funny, but he's drunk off his ass and off pitch a lot.


Short falsetto E5 at the end of this one.



Falsetto D5 (3:35) and a Full voiced G4 (3:41) in this one.

There's some ridiculous lows on that album, too, such as a passage where he sings along with some runs on his baritone guitar down to B1.

I can't find a lot of videos of him ... are those notes down to G1 all in chest voice?

Could be considered mixed fry, but they're strongly produced pitches either way.

LOOOL

Otherwise, yeah I agree that his yarling and the "low-larynx tone" can get pretty weird-sounding at times, but his lows are really good, he sounds demonic on that "Jingle Bells" performance.
