*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.


Possessing a husky, bluesy timbre and a powerful higher range, Christian fronted the obscure hard rock group House of Lords during his prime. Though getting rather screamy and thin around his top range, Christian is able to sing high melodies very well like a true tenor, with agility and power - a classic example of a 'baritenor'. Along with the strong high range, he possesses a rather warm lower range.

Must give Whitesnake a run for their money with how many times "Love" appears on those song titles.

Hey. I was working on a vocal range video for James Christian. Sadly he isn't a fan of "big" high singing. His good high notes are between C5-D5, and even then a rarity. From E5 he is very screamy or very thin, and I prefer to upload videos for singers with more consistent high range. However, if anyone would like to take over, here is a file containing the high and low notes I selected. As a point of interest, the album Sahara contained many E5s, but of poor quality.

I'll probably give it a shot.

How much of his discography have you listened to? Is there anything left?

I listened to it all. If you hear notes above E5 on the later House of Lords material do not be fooled, those are Robin Beck (James' wife. Great voice!). There were some low backing vocals on the Jasper Wrath material but every member of the band were credited for vocals, not James I think.
