Despite the fact that we work mostly with the voice in its classically trained sense, I still have a deep appreciation and love for many non-classical voices. If you don’t know the following, get to know them.
Alfred G. Karnes, preacher and gospel singer;
Mike Patton, erstwhile frontman of Mr. Bungle, Faith No More, collaborator with Zorn;
Tom Waits, singer/songwriter with the most expressive chronic laryngitis you’ll ever hear;
Demetrio Stratos, Greek prog-rocker, researcher, and experimentalist;
and Roy Hart, South African actor who was the star student of avant-garde teacher Alfred Wolfsohn and for whom Eight Songs for a Mad King was written.
