It's the Disturbingly Deep Voice Awards!

So who has made the biggest impact with their low voice???
And the nominees are………………

Ethan Peck:
Currently playing Patrick Verona on ABC Family’s “Ten Things.” I would describe his voice as a tooting foghorn after somebody pissed in it. Props to his show for coining the name of the award.

Steven Wright:
The comedian with a career spanning 3 decades, I love his stuff. His voice is like a backseat driver on the verge of laryngitis. Great one-liners.

Stephin Merritt:
The second of my 3 role models, and the singer of bands such as The Magnetic Fields and The Gothic Archies. His voice brings some people down, but he brings me up, up, up.

Phil Anselmo:
The legendary vocalist behind musical groups such as Pantera, Superjoint Ritual, and Down. Is it weird that Down is my top pick out of those three bands? His voice is dark and scratchy.

And the Winner is………………..[Insert Drumroll]
JK SIMMONS:
Superstar Actor known as Jonah in “Spiderman”, Dr. Emil Skoda on “Law and Order” (SVU and Original). And let’s not forget the father figure role in “Juno.”
‘I’m gonna punch that Bleeker kid in the wiener!' But the reason JK gains an edge with his throaty lowness is his work voicing the yellow M&M in all those commercials. Now that is iconic!



***And the Honorable Mention goes to…
Yao Ming:
He would be on the list of nominees, but all I’ve heard him say in English is his name, and that isn’t really English. I feel a nominee should have a major speaking/singing role to be nominated. But I’m making him the HM for affirmative action reasons.

QATFYG: Who do you think deserves a Disturbingly Deep Voice Award and/or nomination?

  1. Calvin Johnson, lead singer of Beat Happening, Halo Benders, and a few other bands. His voice is ridiculous.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
