Layne Staley's phrasing and tone
When you really dig into Layne’s voice, there is an incredibly vast landscape of colors and spaces …More so than most other singers in my opinion. His grit, the way he milks different words over long, soaring notes…
They way he changes tonal characteristics mid word or phrase is what makes his voice so dynamic and interesting –Nothing stays the same, every phrase is fresh.
In this video, you have the privilege of studying the isolated vocals from “Down In A Hole”. This tune is one of his best vocal performances and displays his introspective tonal and phrasing approach in full color!
