Summary of his range, though missing some notes.




In my opinion, his best studio performance!




The E♭1, he wasn't all to serious with it, but he did hit it.

Yeah, what specifically are you looking for? There are multiple notes, but I'm not sure which to pitch. I hear a B4 over a G♯4 as the highest ("you and me, OHH").

Sorry haha. I hear multiple belted high notes, but it's hard to distinguish Peter Holllens and Austin Brown when they belt so high.
I think I hear a B4 and Eb5 or so, but you say G#4 and B4?

Can someone help me with the beautiful harmonies at 3:17?
I hear two B4's (Rob, long-bearded guy, and Chris, with the hat) and a G#5 somewhere, maybe from Austin?

Cool, so he fulfills your definition of 'full voice'. That doesn't help anyone else on the forum. You might want to change that.

Spoken C6?

Pretty sure these are just shitty yelps and the B♭5s are actually A5s. Also in what performance does he sing the B♭2?

I think that he hits a few A2's in this video, starting at the 1:23 mark. They're not very clear, considering that he doesn't have a microphone, but they're still there.

Thank you Toasted, very much appreciated!
I do hear the A2s, they're just very quiet. You can hear his pronunciation at 1:40.

And Karl, they aren't "shitty yelps", they are "yelps".
I count the Bb5 and C6 as spoken, because they aren't quite sung either.

I think you're being painfully skeptical.

The run in their official live video of SOML in their channel trails down to a soft and slightly flat B2, in this performance the run trails down to a weak and airy Bb2.

At 3:10

In Home Free's "Butt Medley", there are a few seemingly melodic F♯5's starting at 1:49, and there is also a melodic A5 from him at 2:24.

Nice find. I hear both F♯5s and G5s, added the latter ones.
Also added the A5, thanks!

Chest D5 at around 4:01 of their performance of "I'm Alright" on the Sing Off.


Also, Austin wails out a seemingly chest G5 (it's not a blue note, that's for sure) in this particular performance of "Honey I'm Good". It's around 3:49 in this video:


Multiple F♯5's in "The Butts Remix" as well.

Added the D5. The G5 seems like a slide from B4 to Eb5 and then a jump to F#5 to me.
It's not quite just chest or falsetto, I think it's rather in mix voice, and fantastic mix voice!
As for the F#5's, already had them, but thanks Smile

Are you sure that you've added the D5 yet? I'm not seeing it on the list. I'm not seeing the F#5's from "The Butt Remix" either.

And I still hear that last slide as being from a C5 to an E5, then jumping up to a G5. I even compared it to a keyboard, and it sounds a lot closer to a G5, albeit slightly flat.

Whoops, it's indeed C5 to E5, though I'm pretty sure it's an F#5. Maybe just slightly sharp, but I'd really say F#5 (slow it down and it's clearer).
By the way, I also pitch notes through a keyboard app, so the notes from the app must be correct Smile

Well, my bad. I really hate pitching those types of notes that are slightly flat/slightly sharp (making them notes that are between two different semitones) because they're always the ones that throw me off when pitching them.
