Lead singer of British pop band The Hoosiers. Were mostly famous for about 3 songs and they were successful for about 6 months and than the novelty ended. Still, this guy was both an amazing vocalist and a great guitar player who wrote some catchy tunes. Really light voice.

I've been waiting for a thread on him for about 2 years now, thanks for doing it. I just note-watched the second album. Sorry if I've done it wrong, never really done it before. Also I can't really differentiate between sharps and flats, so I've just done #. Hope that's okay! Smile

It was wrote neater, but the page reloaded and I lost all of it, and I'm too lazy to do it again. HV= (not sure if it's falsetto or head but probably falsetto, it's blue anyway). Also his A#4/B4 area was kinda tricky to differentiate sometimes, but put A#4 as that's where his chest normally extends to best.

1.     "Choices"  G♯4 CV. C5, C5♯5/D5 HV.
2. "Bumpy Ride" D3, A♯4, C5. CV. C5 HV.
3. "Who Said Anything (About Falling in Love)?" C♯3, D3, E3, B4 CV. D5 HV.  
4. "Unlikely Hero" A♯4/B4 CV. F♯5/G5 HV.  
5. "Lovers in My Head" A♯4 CV. C5/C♯5 HV.  
6. "Live by the Ocean"  F3, B4 CV. D♯5/E5 HV.
7. "Devil's in the Detail" G3 to G4. Mostly in a head tone.  
8. "Glorious" C♯3, A♯4, B4. C♯5 (heady mix) CV. B4, C♯5, D♯5, E5. HV
9. "Made To Measure" B4, C5 CV. C♯5, D5 HV.
10. "Giddy Up" A♯4, B4 (nice use of chest) CV. B4 HV.
11. "Sarajevo" B4, C♯5 CV. B4, C♯5, D♯5 HV.
12. "Little Brutes" Maybe C3 & B2s in the background but can't really tell with his voice, it's annoyingly light) D3, A4 CV. B4 HV.  
13. "Say Hello Wave Goodbye" Maybe C3, D♯3 with overlaid A♯2 (maybe?). A♯4 CV. A♯4, D5/D♯5 HV.  
14. "Sister Sister" B4 CV. D♯5, E♯5, F♯5 HV.  
15. "Used to Be Love" G♯4, A4/A♯4 CV. B4, E5 HV.
16. "Squeeze" A4 CV. D5, F5, G5. HV Some 'squeezed' G5's at the end also, bluey/red?

Sorry for going overboard. Hope it helps! Very Happy
