I like to sing. I used to sing in the church choir, I’m almost always singing in the car if I have to go somewhere alone. My wife, however, laughs at me if I sing a lot of rock-and-roll songs - just the wrong voice for the music.
Sort of like the “Black people without soul” sketch, it’s just wrong voice, wrong music. I was singing to Marc Broussard on the way into work - very nice “blues” voice, a bit of gravel, a lot of color. Over it is my sweet, slightly reedy tenor.
Am I doomed to always singing James Taylor & John Denver tunes? Is there excercises to add a bit of depth & color to my voice?
Does the music determine the singer or can the singer choose his music?
