About Adam:
Adam Chance was the bass for the acapella group Street Corner Symphony. He has an awesome, bassy baritone voice going into the first octave in chest voice.
SCS doesn't have many songs yet, so there won't be a big list of notes for the moment. Go to their website to listen to (some of) their (studio) songs.

As of May 2016, Adam has replaced Chris Rupp as the baritone in country acapella group Home Free - we can look forward to many awesome notes from him there!

High Notes:
C5: "Can't Stop This Feeling"
B♭4: "Can't Stop This Feeling"
G4: "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" live (semitone higher), "When the Ink Dries", "My Church" (live), "Can't Stop This Feeling"
F♯4: "Beatles Medley", "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" live

G♯1: "Hey, Soul Sister", "Southern Autumn Nostalgia"
G1: "Picturing You", "Myriad of Stars", "O Holy Night"
F♯1: "Hard to Handle"

.......................................................
Underlined indicates notes in background harmonies
Italics indicate non-sung notes
Blue indicate clear falsetto notes


Madness, originaly by Muse.


An awesome version (with awesome B1!) of Hard to Handle.


And a rediculously awesome metal song (yes, entirely vocals! Just "some" effects).


The website of the acapella band he sings bass in:
http://www.streetcornersymphony.com/press-kit

Any help is greatly appreciated!
I'm also unsure about some notes, especially "Hey, Soul Sister" / "Myriad of Stars" so checking notes would be great Smile

Hey, is this thread still alive?
If so, Adam has some pretty strong A1's throughout their latest cover of "Stay With Me".
Also, wouldn't his harmonized notes still count as sung?

Still alive, absolutely.
Sadly, there aren't a lot of SCS songs yet, which is why the list doesn't contain too much.

Thanks for the A1, I heard and it's beautiful. Pretty strong? Very strong! Yeah!
And yes, my bad Facepalm

Adam has some amazing low notes in "What Child Is This." I can't really tell for sure because they're kind of overshadowed by the other harmonies, but I'm pretty sure that there are a few rumbly F#1s, D1s, and C#1s in there. At about 1:44 onward there's a string of them.

Don't understand why I haven't added notes from that song..
Anyway, there are no first octave notes there. Just F#2s, D2s and C#2s if you ask me.
I don't know what effect they've added to the notes, but they do sound very heavy. Still, no 1st octave.

Listening to "Myriad of Stars", I don't believe that the A1s and G1s are actually coming from Adam, but they're rather coming from an octave-lowered bass boost (like what Peter Hollens often does). Same thing for the F#1s from "Loves a Loser" (although there are some Bb3s in the same section, just a sidenote).

Also, I can't help but notice that the picture that you're using right now has a watermark in the bottom left corner. Naughty

The A1's sound legit, like the A1s in "Stay With Me". I actually aren't able to find the G1s anymore, could you give a timestamp?
The F#1 sounds awfully high for a 1st octave note, you're right, though the very soft bass makes me believe it's just a very weakish note.
I'll remove it, to be sure.

I could edit the picture to remove it if you want, but it's pretty unobtrusive anyway. It appears the photographer's intent it is not to prevent anyone from appropriating the image but simply to claim credit for it when they do, so if we remove the credit from the photo itself I'd like to add it in small print underneath if that's OK. I think in general, asking for unwatermarked pictures is mostly just to avoid this sort of shit https://ianmilleruk.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/battle-leeds-watermarked.jpg?w=1272

At the end of "Everybody Wants To Rule The World," Adam sings a G4 on "eve-RY-body." Assuming he isn't just lip syncing to the other guys, that is.

Also, the first and third syllables of that word are C4s. Aaaand he hits some nice Eb2s at the beginning of the song.

In the video on YouTube, he sings D2's and a B3 and F#4. Is that song on Spotify too, a semitone higher?
Ahh, some live versions are a semitone higher. Added.

Also, Celice, that would be very kind of you Smile

EDIT
Alright, who changed the OP?
Little while ago, somebody changed Tim Foust's vocal type to "(dark) Tenor", and somebody (Celice?) changed Adam's picture with the credits below it.
Who does, or who do this?

They're at the end of the slides at 1:35 and 2:10, but I might have pitched them wrong (I had trouble pitching them).
Could be they aren't F#1s, but rather G#1s or A1s?

EDIT
Nah, after listening to it multiple times having pitches around 31 Hz and 62 Hz enhanced, and everything above it weakened, it still sounds like the lowest point he reaches is F#1/G1.

According to Street Corner Symphony, they have a track for "O Holy Night" uploaded to the Band of Merrymakers channel (made with David Ryan Harris and Alex & Sierra).

Quite a few B♭1s and a G1 in the background of the first section of the song.

AcBass, why would you classify him as a bari? Genuinely curious; not trying to sway your thought process or start an argument.

I would say, just compare him to the deep voices like Avi Kaplan, he comes nowhere near that. Tim Foust is lower than Adam too.
When you hear him talk, you can also hear that he is just a heavier-than-average voice with a great lower register.

Just a few video's and comparisons.

Listen to the lightness in his higher register, are those C4s, D4s, E4s, and G4s?


Listen to this live version of "Hard to Handle", he just really sounds like he's trying to be bass while he isn't, he misses the B1 and hits C2/C#2.


Here, his speaking voice (at 0:16). I know speaking voice says little, but it's way to high for a bass.


Now a (in my opinion) real bass, Avi (1:00).

Ah, makes sense! This was pretty informative! Because of this post I have found out I'm actually a baritone and not, in fact, a bass.

Idk how basses manage to project notes C#2 and below. I listen to live performances and they're always so loud... meanwhile, I hum C2 "dms" and "dooms" and it's barely audible. Sad

Please do take into consideration that the bass is much enhanced and increased in volume during live performance.
I personally think you can only judge whether one is bass or baritone if you hear them in real life.

Even the really deep voices don't have a lot of volume behind their lowest few notes Wink

(B1 without amplification at 5:44)


Anyway, enough of this - this thread is for Adam Razz

Well, this is interesting...apparently he has left Street Corner Symphony and will be replacing Chris Rupp as Home Free's baritone starting in June.
