Francis Dunnery is the lead singer and guitarist for Progressive rock/pop band It Bites. Dunnery tends to make his voice lighter, like many of his contemporaries like Fish and Peter Nicholls, in an attempt to sound similar to Genesis-era Peter Gabriel. His higher parts don't seem too strained, however he sounds more comfortable in the lower areas of his range, which is actually pretty strong, not to mention he is gifted with a lovely falsetto which he uses rather tastefully. His pronunciation with some words can sound a bit strange, as if he's intentionally hamming up his accent when he sings (My brother makes fun of him for how he says "days gone by" in the song "Screaming on the Beaches."), but his voice is still pretty col regardless. In his younger days, he could go from soft falsetto parts to harsh, shouty parts, whereas now he sings mostly in his comfortable mid-range. Check out his work on Steve Hackett's Genesis Revisited II and his numerous Peter Gabriel and Genesis covers on YouTube.

Here at 2:23, Dunnery dips down in his talk-singing bit, but I can't really pitch it too well. It sounds around the upper 2nd octave, but the growly sound and the guitar keeps throwing me off.

I reckon it bottoms around a B2.
