How do I sing with a much more powerful chest voice like Mark Lanegan?
I went to see Mark Lanegan last night. He was awesome. He has such as rich, deep and powerful chest voice. I naturally have a low range and a deep voice but as I start to get up to middle C (c4) my chest voice sounds really thin.
Mark Lanegan`s, on the other hand, stays thick and rich.
Most of my favourite singers are pretty similar, (not as thick though). They don`t tend to bother with head voice, it`s all thick chest voice.
So far, I have used the weekend warrior materials and my voice is getting smoother up in the range but down in chest from C3 to E4 it is just not that thick. Pretty thin compared to Mark`s to be honest.
Here is an example of his style - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miM22yylXTY
Not for everyone I`m sure, but I love this sound and would love to add this sort of thing to my style as it really suits the music I write.
I keep pushing it harder but not sure on how to develop this thickness. Do I push the voice harder it or do I do something else?
