Was Bradlys voice unrealistic for a man in 2018?


I felt like his voice was how men sounded in the 60s or something. I’ve never met a young man with a voice like this. I’m Australian, but I have lived in America.

Nah, he reminded me of Blake Shelton, who's just a year his junior. Plenty of country singers have those gruff voices.

reply

Blake sounds modern, nothing like this voice.

reply

It didn't feel out of place at all imo. Maybe he's one of those artists who fine-tune their voice to sound like they're from a particular era.

reply

I really liked the movie. But I think that voice was...overdone.
It was distracting to the point of offputting.

reply

He was trying to sound like his brother.

reply

Yeah this. That's exactly right...he even says so, I believe, doesn't he?

reply

He was trying to sound like his brother.

bradley cooper has a brother in movies?

reply

Wikipedia calls him a country singer too. But it’s clearly rock. Fairly hard rock in fact.

reply

Maybe its because I am not American (however I watch hundreds of US films and series), but I didn't notice anything wrong or weird about his voice and I can't even recall what his voice sounded like. Only watched it once though.

reply

He was doing a Kris Kristrofferson impression.

reply

I got a Gordon Lightfoot vibe from some of the earlier songs he sang.

reply

Haven't seen the movie but Gordo and Kris don't sound anything alike, if you ask me. I always thought KK recorded on the strength of his songwriting. I don't know how Lightfoot got his material. Come to think of it, I think GL wrote his own material.

reply

He didn't sound like Kristofferson when he was singing, but when he was talking in a normal voice. When I heard him talk in the movie I immediately thought: "he's doing Kris Kristofferson." Singing voice sounds like Bradley to me.

reply

I totally was getting that impression time after time. Didn't like it.

reply

We have become accustomed to 21st Century male pop singers and their high-pitched falsettos. An adult man with a masculine voice is a rarity today.

reply

Exactly right. We’re too used to those lightweight voices. He has a sexy mans voice.

reply

Do you mean his singing voice or his speaking voice? I haven't watched the film.
