Lead singer for the band 'Keane', probably best known for songs like ''Everybody's Changing'' and ''Somewhere Only We Know'' (famously covered by Lily Allen). He possesses a great tenor voice, reminiscent of Matt Bellamy, but also channels some Elton John and definitely Freddie Mercury here and there. A very easy higher range.
For example here:
He nails this performance! Just effortless A4s and B♭4s throughout. Freddie would've been proud.

could you write a description of him/his career? i know that he has his own band and whatnot, but from the thread he looks like a cover artist.

He has a great A5 in his studio cover of Under Pressure, though as far as I'm aware he's never nailed it live (I've only heard him attempt the A5 live twice: one attempt was flat and the other barely audible). IIRC Freddie himself usually avoided it live too - it's a bitch to sing.

Are there any better pictures of him that could be featured? He doesn't look too flattering on the current one, actually not like himself at all. Whistle

I'd say so. I mean, ultimately it's your call, considering you two have contributed so much for Tom's thread, but at least he looks like himself on this one! Wink

Inb4 Greg comes along to correct Brian and Tom and tell us exactly how many times Queen did play it live  Smile 
It is indeed a great performance. Here's another interesting one - though nothing noteworthy pitchwise, it displays his voice in its purest form because this is as unplugged as it gets: an unamplified solo performance of Again and Again (venue is Union Chapel, capacity a cosy 800).

Hadn't Muse already released 3 albums when Keane released their first?

whoops!!! All I meant to say was that their vocal styles are at times very similar.

Yeah, if you still want to. As you can probably see I added some stuff from the Perfect Symmetry album, as well as a few notes from an old version of the thread from TRP1 which Timi had archived. It didn't have much from Under The Iron Sea though, so there's plenty still to fill in if you'd like to.

Ya, i'll get right on it. I must say, the OP is really coming together. I see you've researched some live cover tracks too like ''Don't look back in anger''. Awesome!  Thumb up

This is INCREDIBLE. He doesn't just nail all the lines, he also sounds a lot like Freddie on a lot of it! Wicked.
