Known For Vocals:
As an actor, comedian, voice-over artist, presenter and singer. Rob Brydon continues to perpetuate the stereotype that all Welsh people have an inherent flair for singing. Singing with guests on his own shows, on musical segments of radio programs, such as "I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue" as well as charity and variety performances, Rob Brydon has shown great control over his voice with deft use of vibrato and dynamics to a professional-sounding standard. A lyric baritone, he has quite strong and heavy-sounding lows, as well as a very impressive chest belting technique similar to that of Elvis Presley or a young Tom Jones (both of whom Brydon lists amongst his favourite artists and the latter of which is a fellow Welshman, with whom Rob Brydon has performed), reaching A4s really quite effortlessly.

Not including the literal range showoff from the trip with Steve Coogan? Definite baritone anyway.

Haven't notewatched that clip yet, although the premise sounds promising. Certainly his vocal colour and weight is very baritone. But his consistency with live A4s, in pure chest with tons of vibrato and everything really clouds things. That said, Elvis and Tom Jones (in his youth anyway), both of whom Brydon lists as among his favourite artists, had a similar approach to chest belts around A4 and were both lyric baritones. But what does Baritenor even mean any more?

Baritenor is just what people here call singers who can go both high and low tbh.

"Easy E2s AND A4s? Must be a baritenor"

But yeah that clip has sadly been removed from youtube. But the movie has a cover of The Winner Takes It All with some good highs, then a contest to see who can go the lowest or something. I think I remember a B1, but it was probably Steve.

I remember notewatching that clip once, if I remember rightly Brydon had B1 - G#4 and Coogan Bb1 - Bb4.
