Voice type: High tenor
Sung range: B♭2-C6

Significant high notes:

C6 ("Prayer", "I'm Not Sick")
B5 ("When You're Moving", "Cleveland, Ohio", "Paradise", "Back Seat of My Car")
A5 ("Nightmare", "Paradise", "Prayer")
G♯5 ("Back Seat of My Car", "Hollywood Star")
G5 ("Nightmare", "Paradise", "You're in America", "When You're Moving", "Prayer", "Back Seat of My Car", "Equator", "Hollywood Style")
F♯5 ("You're in America", "Hollywood Star", "Prayer")
F5 ("When You're Moving", "Paradise", "Bad Talk")
E5 ("Prayer", "You're in America", "Cleveland, Ohio", "When You're Moving", "Paradise", "I'm Not Sick", "Back Seat of My Car")
E♭5 ("When You're Moving")
D5 ("Bad Talk", "Cleveland, Ohio", "Paradise", "Space in Time", "Taste of Love")
C5 ("Hollywood Star", "You're in America", "Prayer", "Slings and Arrows")

Significant low notes:

B♭2 ("Nightmare")
D3 ("Equator", "Space in Time")
E3 ("Cleveland, Ohio", "Taste of Love", "Nightmare", "Paradise", "Hollywood Star", "Hollywood Star")

.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.


Geddy Lee meets Robert Plant; Leffel, the lead vocalist of Granicus, sounds like a high tenor most of the time, but sometimes showcases his surprisingly strong and dense mid- and low registers, once in a while sounding even like Plant himself... A wicked voice.

Granicus only have two albums so I'd definitely give them a shot. The 1973 self-titled debut is the better recording, imo.



Listen to this whole thing for some absolutely CRAZY vocals. The ending of "Prayer" seriously has the mindfuck of an ending.

Fucking mindblowing highs, he doesn't sound even remotely that high-placed in his mid range though, very weird! Prayer has D5s and F#5s too, no need for orange for the A5 IMO, the first one at least is hilariously full, the other ones are trickier but also probably full (same for the C6...).

Reminds me of a more bearable version of David Surkamp. Really enjoyed their album, btw Timi! Smile

I love Surkamp, I thought that too though Laughing Not that I can't bear David, he's just really... unique, weird, etc.

I think his C6 would now be considered black.
