Justin Timberlake's Head, Chest and Mix Voice
Don't know if I will get ridiculed for this or not, but happen to be a big fan of Justin Timberlake's voice and style/groove of music.
Ran across this version of his song, "Drink You Away" and it DESTROYS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zsgokf3srU4
Even if you aren't a JT fan - what a great performance and song between he and Chris Stapleton. Killer.
My questions regarding his singing style and particularly some parts of this video:
1. To me his is a classic, Sam Cooke-ish "R & B" voice; a silky-smooth head voice that isn't an airy falsetto, but it doesn't have a lot of weight or power behind it. It's just crystal-clear and clean. Is that an accurate description of his voice.
2. What roughly is his range? (I am not up to speed on what A4, etc; I can only relate it to is it a high C for me (tenor), or when hitting the D, E above C in Level 2 workout or hitting around G/G# in the female soprano range in the Level 3 Mastery Workout
3. In beginning around :20, he sounds like he is in chest; around 1:00 on the chorus, "I can't drink you away..." chest or mix?
4. 2:13 - that sounds like pure head
5. 2:32 - head/falsetto mix or pure head?
6. 3:10 that vocal run down - pure head?
7. 3:54 - sounds like his first mix of head and chest with some grit?
Ken says I have a "middle America" voice that can do ballads and then go dirty for bluesy stuff; been told I sound Sam Cooke-ish/have a more R & B voice. Want to develop the ability like Allen Stone to be nimble with the head and chest voice/mix it/slide in and out at will like Timberlake seems to do this in the above video.
