What's my GENRE/STYLE?

Am I more of a pop rock, pop, RnB, rock or an alternative singer?

I'm a high baritone according to Bob.
"High notes" aren't the main issue, it's just my passagio that sometime strains & limits my comfort

Here are some of my singing videos

    You're right down the middle with an rnb-pop sound. You can do either or a combination. You're favoring your head voice over an extended chest voice, but it sounds fine and appropriate for what it appears to be the style you like. You're on a good track.

    I appreciate the feedback. I'm thankful Bob!

    Is what I'm singing from 00:58-01:15 "high larynx" and not safe long term?

    The high larynx tends to be kind of tense and your throat will feel "jammed up high". You can run out of room in your throat. It can make you tend to "force" higher notes, once your larynx is up to the limit. That's where it can be a problem. Using a high larynx just to get a froggy sound for special effect is OK. You just don't want to do it all the time or get into that "jammed" feeling. You do sound a little tense in that section, but as far as the voice and the notes go, it's not a problem. You just don't want to be dealing with tension in the throat if it's optional.

    I see & thanks for the advice.

    How do you go about mixing the sound up there? Altho I find it a bit hard

    And where can I learn more about larynx/pharynx positions? I feel that KTVA course has limited info on that
