Vocal Range and Profile: Elly Jackson (La Roux)

Vocal Range: F3 - G5 - C6
Vocal Type: Lyric Soprano (2 octaves, 4 notes)
Vocal Rating: B-
Recommended Listenings: Bulletproof, Quicksand

Positives: An instantly identifiable voice. Elly never brings herself to force notes, with even her highest notes being achieved with ease. The low notes are thick and darker than the rest of the voice, and is achieved with good technique. Though her voice is generally airy and whispy, she has shown the ability to solidify her voice, see 'Bulletproof'.

Negatives: Vocal runs are messy and labored, and the voice overall is fairly thin, causing it to become shrill at points. Her mixed voice is very heady, making it hard to determine if she is singing in head voice or mixed voice.
