Tender is the Voice
Three singers that remind me of each other are Richard Marx, Kenny Loggins and Neil Byrne. Whenever I hear a song from one of these men, I think of the others, but it’s not because they sound identical. They each have a sincere tenderness (the best word I could think of) that can be heard in whatever style of song they are singing. Each puts their heart and soul into their songs and their compassion can be heard in every song. Take a listen to each singer to see if you can find any other similarities.
Below are two examples of songs from each of these guys and a little bit of info about them. The songs show the deep emotions the men convey while maintaining a gentle quality that is uniquely theirs.
