Traction wrote:This is my first entry and my first time note watching so some of this info may be incorrect but its most likely in the ball park. Huey strains almost all his highs and he also seems to sing all his significant high notes constantly and maybe multiple times in the same song. He strains his A4s yet he sings them all the time. I couldn't really find any significant low notes of his he seems to stay in the upper 3rd and 4th octave but he can most definitely go lower. I'm open to criticism I just really wanted a thread to be made of him. It most likely needs work.

This is my old thread. Shitty caption though. It is true though that he strains a lot of his highs and frequently sings out of his comfort zone... which may explain his withered voice in recent years.

Found some cool highs. They are scattered throughout the track starting at 1:30 Most of which are probably non-modal.
1:42 - F6
2:52 - C6?
2:57 - C6 again?

Not trying to start a debate, but are you guys sure he's a baritone? I mean he can sound a bit breathy at times and personally I always called him a baritenor of some sort, I've never really heard him particularly low so I just assumed he was more comfortable in the tenor tessitura, is he really a standard baritone?

A blatant baritone, without a shadow of a doubt.

By the way, the high notes from "Hip to Be Square" should be listed here.

Good song from Disney's "Oliver and company". Not many significant highs and lows here, the range is B2-F♯4 (if you want you can add the B2), anyway I think that it shows well Huey's "comfort zone" and his rich baritone.




A4: 0:13
F♯5 in the verse's harmony (I'm not sure that these are sung by Huey himself): 0:32
Multiple G4s in the chorus: 0:41
