30 years I have been singing my own songs. Always striving for that wow factor. But whether it's a slow song or hard rock, my energy and passion is there and my wife say I do better with slow songs But it's not the wow factor with flexable vocal accents. Please help!

I remember an old video from the KTVA channel where Ken states that he believes "soul" is something that's earned. In other words, that character you personally bring to songs is something that comes with expanding your tool box of techniques, dedication and consistency.
I think also working on stage persona helps as well. I think wow factor maybe comes from one's ability to tell a story through their voice and emotion, so maybe taking a song and asking yourself what is being said and then try to "get into that mindset" of what is being said.
I hope that makes sense. Although, posting a video of you singing may also be helpful!
It won't give you that wow factor straight away, but you will have many things to try and incorporate into your singing, until you find a mixture that feels right to you, and it will become your style.
Easier said than done, but use your past experiences to connect with the lyrics and use those emotions to bare your soul.
Here we have a few songs. Most songs with only a male vocal is me. White House Blues is one of them.
