What's the difference between an alto singer and every other alto related voice range like contralto and deep alto etc..

Great question!

An Alto singer has a special voice,with a little rough,reaching notes lower than a Mezzo or a Soprano.

But not every Alto is the same!

A Deep Alto,reaches real low notes and have an androgynous timbre like Tony Braxton or Cher.

A Lyric Alto sometimes is confused with Mezzo-Soprano because reach higher notes but keep that characteristics of Alto.

Bruno Mars vocal range


Name:Bruno Mars
Country:Hawaii
Vocal type:High Tenor
Range:2,5 octaves(E3-C6)
Some people call Bruno Mars a CounterTenor but the best label for him would be High/Fach Tenor.
He has a young fresh and light voice,reach real high notes as chest and head voice,and speed is his best quality

Unfortunatelly the screen above is the only tech video I found,but for full song screen I choose “Treasure” because you can clearly listen his high head voice notes!

Enjoy,share and follow =D

Ronnie James Dio vocal range


Name:Ronnie James Dio
Country:United States
Vocal type:Low Tenor
Range:4 octaves(F1-)C#2-G5(-A6)
Unfortunatelly we just have 1 tech video about Ronnie James Dio,but it´s enough to appreciate his amazing powerfull Low Tenor voice,thick and high as the same,check this out!

He was really clever when he grew old and didn´t reach that highs so easily,so he started to record and make live presentations singing 1 octave under he used to and using more chest voice,and became more Dramatic this way.
For full song screen I choose “Last in line” because “Holy Diver” is TOO obvious!Anyway,both classics and perfect songs :)

Chris Cornell(Soundgarden,ex-Audioslave)vocal range


Name:Chris Cornell
Country:United States
Vocal type:Baritone
Range:3,5 octaves(F1-)B1-G5(-E6)

This is the most tech video about Chris´s voice and it´s perfect!
He has an strong Baritone voice,too heavy for a Tenor but high enough to reach an A5 or C6 on head voice(not falsetto),all of this full of extreme rage.

This video is a vocal test in Australia in 2012,Cornell is just singing random tunes but showing his potencial.Nice to watch as curiosity.

For full song screen I choose “Outshined” of Soundgarden(early 90´s) because this song is amazing,a classic of Metal or Grunge Rock.

tAtU duet vocal range


Name:tAtu (Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova)
Country:Russia
Vocal Type:Lena(Light Lyric Soprano)
Yulia(Coloratura Mezzo_soprano)
Range:Both in studio(C#3-G#5)
Lena almost 3 octaves(C#3-D5-G#5)
Yulia 2 octaves (F3-G5)

Everyone reminds tAtU but never expected a tech post about their voices!I got crazy when I found it,thanks Alex Max =D

This video is perfect because shows all vocal development of both singers,since 1999,when they were just teenagers on “All the things she said” to best of(2011)
Lena Katina is considered a Light Lyric Soprano because she has a versatile voice,dominating chest and head voice and also knows to sing as Lyric Contralto.
Yulia Volkova has a specific timbre,so particular,but she´s really good on high head voice,sustaining the 5th octaves for long time on “Not gonna get us”.
I haven´t found their vocal ranges separetly but I guess their best song is “Not gonna get us” because of this G#5 head voice sustein.

Lorde vocal range


Name:Lorde
Country:New Zeland
Vocal type:Contralto
Range:2,5 octaves(G#2-G#5)

Lorde has an incredible unique Contralto type!She´s really good on low notes(ever she´s just 16) but can reach clearly a G#5 on top head voice,all of this in a unique timbre!

I found this treasure of Lorde,even younger,on her first demo,reaching C#3-F#5,but also called Dugazon or Contralto.I´ve never heard this first classification,but I agree about Contralto.

For full song screen I choose “Royals” because it´s the only one I know (XD) but alson a really good track!
