Heath King was an obscure singer and producer from Australia, who died 4 years to the day on which this thread is posted. Because of the fact he's so obscure, few of his songs are available online, but you can listen to those that are by following these links:

http://www.myspace.com/heathkingmusic
http://www.myspace.com/flowsite/music/songs

Stylistically, his approach varied. In his solo material it was quite soulful and reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, but in his material with Flow it varied between that soulful style and a more crazy one a la Mike Patton. Heavy use of vibrato is almost always present in his singing, and can be heard on most his songs. Heath used falsetto in a large portion of his discography, but was also able to go high with grit and power, as shown at the end of "Say My Name"(solo), "Click Over"(Flow) and others. King also was able to darken his highs, which can be heard in the song "Desert"(Solo). He also displayed the ability to throat sing and hit impressive modal lows, with the song "Gung Ho"(Flow) being the best example of both.

(He's singing in all of this video)


R.I.P.
