I Know What You're Thinking And Yes. He Does Have A 5 Octave Range


Vitaliy Vladasovich Grachov, known professionally as Vitas, is a Latvian singer who sings in Russian. He is known for his unique head voice and possesses a five-octave vocal range.

Of all the criticisms that Barstool gets, I think the haters who say that we don’t value Russian singers with 5-octave vocal ranges sting the most. I cant tell you how many times I’ve been sitting around the old water cooler with Rone and he tells me of a new falsetto prince who resides in Siberia. Rone is constantly cruising Youtube for the next Vitalily Vladasovich Grachov. Who isnt?

I mean, when you can cruise up and down the vocal highway with the ease of a well-oiled European speed train, people take notice. He cruises from lower bass to damn near countertenor. Impressive!

I know what you are thinking. You are thinking that his voice reminds you of David Hansen, a counter tenor and Finalist in the 2003 Australian Singing Competition which was held at the Sydney Opera House, Australia with the Australian Opera & Ballet Orchestra conducted by Tom Woods. Reminded me of that too. Some of the younger Stoolies might not remember, but I’ll never forget. Let’s take a moment.

Anyway, thought you could start your morning by silencing those haters and massaging your eardrums with angelic tones of the highest degree. Good morning and Namaste.
