Could I train my voice to sound like this?
Hi there everyone, first post here! So this is how I currently sound https://www.speakpipe.com/voice-recorder/msg/0fv5asj235pf9v9x would it be possible for me to eventually have a voice similar to this? https://vocaroo.com/i/s0GWt6EIXjiJ Thanks.
My short opinion: no you can´t change your voice to sound like XXXXX
but what I find much more important: you can train your voice to be versatile. You can train your voice to sing higher and lower than you currently are and you can train your voice to sound awesome. The vocal tract, the vocal folds, the nasal cavitys in your head are different than anybody else. Everyones voice is different and that is good.
Can Frank Sinatra sing like Chris Cornell? No... does it mean he is a bad singer? absolutely not!

For me it is very important to find YOUR voice. Don´t try to be someone else. It is not wrong to have some influences from famous singers. When you listen a lot to some certain style and you learn the right techniques, you will sound a little bit like your influence because you will tend to sing in a similar style. But it still will have a big load of your "fingerprint" in the sound.
if you check out the videos of Ken's students covering songs, I guess this is a good indicator on how close you could get.(give or take). if they would spend more time they could probably come even closer but they get pretty close as it stands. i assume you get Ken's newsletter if not here is the recent cover:
She can't obviously be Stevie Nicks but she can copy her style. so I guess you could try too with your favorite singers!
Maximus3000, thanks for the advice. You're right. The reason I asked this question was just to get an idea of the possibilities with my voice and how it could potentially sound like with proper training.
It's quite likely that, after considerable training, you will be able to sing songs you never thought you would be capable of. And you can learn a lot about making your voice sound more pleasing, both to yourself and to others.
