Rik Emmett is the multi-skilled singer and guitarist of the classic Canadian rock band Triumph. Most known for his very naturally high voice (often compared to Rush's Geddy Lee), he's maintained a powerful and fairly effortless high range throughout his entire career. Over the years his voice has deepened and matured, eventually developing a more prominent rasp. While rarely utilizing his lower range, he has shown the ability to have a warmer sound in his mid and lower ranges than one would expect from his insane high range.
