How do you develop a raspy singing voice? Singing with a clean, balanced tone is not always a desirable aesthetic in contemporary genres like rock, country and even jazz. Sometimes you want to add a rough, raspy quality to your voice to enhance the overall sound.
Is it ok to have a raspy or rough edge to the sound occasionally? Absolutely. I guess the key to achieving a raspy singing voice all while you work to avoid the development of benign vocal fold lesions, is to develop the ability to turn the sound quality on and perhaps, more importantly, be able to turn it off. I used the word, ‘mindlessly’ earlier. In my humble opinion, raspy voice quality is not something you should set and forget.
