Chris Pratt

Post  Starman on Mon Jan 05, 2015 7:16 am



Vocal Range: E2-D5

Significant High Notes:

D5 (''Since You've Been Gone'' (live on Late Night 2015))
C5 (''Stinky Feet Patrol'')
B4 (''Since You've Been Gone'' (live on Late Night 2015))
B♭4 (''Jerry Dinner'')
A4 (''5000 Candles In the Wind'' (live at The Unity Concert 2014), ''Stinky Feet Patrol'', ''Sudden Death Song'')
G♯4 (''My Own Worst Enemy'', ''Ooh Child'' (2014 Interview))
G4 (''Anne's Song'', ''Catch Your Dream'', ''Get On the Good Foot'' (2014 Interview), ''Paloma Cucurrucucu Paloma'', ''Since You've Been Gone'' (live on Late Night 2015))
F♯4 (''A Damn Good Year'' (live on SNL 2014), ''Don't Play With Matches'', ''Uptown Funk'' (live on Late Night))

Significant Low Notes:

D3 (''Catch You Dream'', ''Pick Your Nose'', ''The Pit'', ''Polar Bears Are dying'', ''We Didn't Start The Fire'')
C♯3 (''Take Me Out To the Ball Game'' (live at Shea Stadium 2014))
C3 (''November'', ''Pee The Bed'', ''Sudden Death Song'')
B2 (''The Pit'')
A2 (''5000 Candles In The Wind'', ''I've Got You Under My Skin'')
F♯2 (Song in ''Galentine's Day'' Episode)
E2 (''A Damn Good Year'' (live on SNL 2014))

I dunno, I just felt like making this OP. He's actually got a great voice, employs an Eddie vedder like deepness to his style, but is actually quite possesses a clear and bright tenor voice.

I think that's the Rock Band scene where he sings "My Own Worst Enemy"

Hey starman, not sure if you noticed, but the description still mentions the "complete octave gap in his SHN."

Can't really hear Pratt being anything but a baritone. He pretty much always shifts into a light falsetto for anything over G4, and his voice in the 4th octave is really belty. Plus, he often sounds really comfortable down around G2. That, with his heavy timbre, makes it hard for me to think he's a tenor of any sort.

Are we seriously still basing voice type on range and singing ability as indicative factors of voice type? For that matter, why do we still give a shit?

As do many tenors, it's arbitrary to point this out, what's your point?

He's clearly darkening his timbre on purpose in most examples.

Doesn't change the fact that he's a baritone. His tessitura, range as well as most of the singing moments (not to mention his speaking) are all that of a baritone to my ears. He sings lightly on the video you showcased, but it's not particularly tenor-like, just crooned, airy falsetto on the higher notes. Baritones can exaggerate their low larynx singing as well.

It's almost at as if dividing something so unique and versatile as voices into two-three categories doesn't work perfectly.

Pointing out the pointlessness of a debate that has been had and proven to not lead anywhere time and time again, the most insulting thing.

Sorry to have upset you!

His voice color, range, timbre, all suggest he is a baritone. You are merely claiming he is somehow faking all of these variables, and that underneath it all he is a tenor. We could easily say any singer was doing this: I can do a great impression of a tenor, bass, baritone, even a soprano. But Pratt's singing voice always falls into the sound of a baritone to my ear. Even in the clip you posted in response, that's very much a light baritone sound up higher. Actually, a tenor wouldn't usually have such a "sweet" sound up there, but more a silvery, masculine sound. Unless there is a reason for classifying him as a tenor beyond the idea that somehow he is 'faking' his baritone sound throughout, I don't really think that there is a reason to call him a tenor when all of these other factors point to baritone.

Again, I apologize--I wasn't trying to upset anyone, and I appreciate the work done by the OP in cataloging all the notes!
