An extremely soulful singer who is able to alternate between sweet and powerful raspy singing. His ability to sing in the 5th octave with chest voice is amazing. He has been often compared to singers such as Robert Plant and Jim Morrison, but still his sound is unique.

I'm not familiar with this singer, but seeing the small amount of notes so far (I know you just put it up), you may want to extend his highs downward.

Yep I just put it here like an hour ago, he is a relatively popular new singer(let's say like a cult artist) he has an strong fan base but is not that popular), and since I did not find any thread about him I decided to make one, and just added the notes I remembered that stood out, but I plan to extend it down to A4 since he mostly sings in chest middle 4th octave.

One of my favorite active singers. The thing about him rarely using head voice is true of his role in Rival Sons. His roots are more of a bluesy singer/songwriter where he takes his foot off the gas somewhat:





The "Wild Horses" cover has lots of head voice and belted B4s (or Bb4s - can't remember) in the second half of the song.

This time I would say he got off pitch several times in that Wild Horses performance Cringe He usually sings very emotional on his live performances but never gets off pitch. I do hear several B4s so I will add it. Also I was having trouble pitching some of his notes in Soul.

At 1:46 he goes low, I think it is Bb2. At 2:02 a nice sustained Bb4, 2:50 another Bb4. At 3:00 a D3.
There are several really high but brief notes. Which sometimes he hits them live to.
At 4:05 is the first, but that one is not that good. At 5:22 this one is better, sounds like a Bb5 to me. At 5:25 another one.
The reason why I mention them is because they sound intentional and he replicates them live(sometimes).


In The Face of Light there several really good C#5 and one D5, also there is an extremely low note(for him)
At 1:30 my guess is an F#2, 2:48 another low maybe a bit lower than the other one, an F2 but is not as powerful as the F#2.
At 3:08 is where the highs start there are several C#5s so will just say at which time each: 3:25, 3:43 3:58(even touching D5, I believe), 4:08 a (C#5 with a brief D5)


I think that this both songs are among his best performances(studio)

I found this and it has several notes but the one that instersts me the most is the one at the end it sounds like a C2 Shocked Although is not powerful it is sustained.

It is stamped it, at 4:48 but now hearing it again I have no idea how I heard it that low I see now that it is a G2, perhaps since it is a bit dark that is why I heard it lower

Unfortunately you can't; you have to copy and paste them.

Fantastic C♯5 sliding into something higher at 3:09.

A G2 at 0:52?

I'm sure there's a lot more notes in this one, but don't have the time.

A fantastic C5 at 0:29 followed by screamed note at 0:35 (F5?)

Check to this performance, it has SOOO many notes. I'll leave it to farrex to pitch em.

Another great performance with some falsetto for a change! Example being 0:50

Just noticed a quick slide into something quite high at 5:15.

The note at 0:35 is a bit tricky, but I think it is an F5/F#5 but I'll leave it at F5. Twice hits a D5 which is just like the album version, not the same one since he alters the order of which ones he sings higher. And I think there was an Eb5 at 2:08. I believe the album version has an F#5 in the end but I have not added it, yet.

The D5 from Open My Eyes matches the studio version. and I do not hear that G2, it sounds more like 3rd octave with a extremely brief lower note.

The D5 from Where I've been, nice one.

Wow, this took me completely by surprise, since this song is mostly instrumental, but in the end there is an extremely powerful C#5 and in the backing vocals there is a 6th octave note, my guess is it is an A6 and then slides down to F#6, and it sounds clean I think there is no overtone. I will wait for someone to confirm this before adding it to the OP.

Weird note. It definitely sounds 6th octave, but I don't know if it reaches as high as A6.

Any chance of pitching the note at 13:06? Sounds like it gets to at least G#5

The highest note I hear is G5 but then he goes briefly to what I think it is an A5. However if no one else can confirm it I will count it as a G#5, which he already has one G#5 in a live version of that song. Nice find, I think it is his cleanest note above F5, sadly it is rather brief. By the way, the F#5 he sustains at the end of the solo is just awesome, sadly he hits higher in the studio so I do not know If I should add it since it is one of the best high notes I have ever heard from him.

This cover of Humble Pie is both awesome and full of ridiculously high notes. First are the typical Chesty low 5th octave notes from Jay.
At 1:35 this one took me off guard, is it a C#6 Shocked ?
At 3:31 there is a brief one.
At 4:30 a brief but powerful 6th octave note at the end.
5:07 sounds like another C#6 but briefer.

Also this whole performance is crazy but there is this high note.

And here I think he goes as low as a C2, definitely the lowest note he has ever sung.

I believe in this awesome performance, Jay hits three times a G#6. But in this timestamp is the best example. It sounds pretty solid for a 6th octave note. I hear it a bit higher but a freind told me it is a G#6.

EDIT: I'm shit at pitching notes, it's just an awful D5! Smile

By the Way does this count as spoken? He goes really low before and after speaking. Do you think this should be added?
