Fred: I have always envisioned myself as a weird cross between a blues singer and a Broadway singer. I figured, why not follow those two disparate ends and see where it leads? I tend to lean a little more towards bluesier Broadway stuff, as opposed to traditional rock singing, simply because it's more natural to me. It's what I feel.
I just run with it and see where it goes. It has led to some interesting stuff the last few years, songs like “Oh, Toulouse” and “Too Many Jennys.” With the “GO!” album, there were the songs “Dare” and “How Would You Feel?"
I love singing that way. It's very natural to me. And when you sing that way for a while, you feel pretty good afterwards.
