“You still had to find the music inside your language. You know, it was – that’s a big part of what sort of moved me to begin writing the book. I wrote a little essay and I felt, yeah, this is a good voice. This is a good feeling. It feels like me.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I had spent about three months where I couldn’t sing at all, so that was anxiety-provoking. But after that, I went back out. I sang for two hours in my garage one day to see if I had a voice.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I heard a political message in rock music. A liberation message. A message of freedom. I heard it in Elvis’ voice.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I wanted to be the reasonable voice of revenge for what I’d seen [my father] life come to.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Your spoken voice is a part of it – not a big part of it, but it’s something. It puts people at ease, and once again kind of reaches out and makes a bridge for what’s otherwise difficult music.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“A pop song is a condensed version of a life in three minutes, whereas, when you go to write your prose, you have to find the rhythm in your words, and you have to find the rhythm in the voice that you have found and the way you’re speaking.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Unions have been the only powerful and effective voice working people have ever had in the history of this country.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“You can beat the drum so hard that people stop listening. I wanted to use my voice wisely and not expend it wastefully.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The Spirit is a voice that one feels more than hears.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“There are things about how a note sounds on a violin that are really analogous to the human voice – you have a frequency and the air, and then you have a timbre which really is overtones – and making those things work together is one thing. The other thing is mechanical: If you can use your hands and arms to create sound on a fiddle, then learning to sing with it is like adding a third body part. And it’s all training.”

 

Bruce Molsky

“My son is in a band, and he’s a singer, and his vocals … they’re screaming-growling stuff … and he’s got a pretty reasonable voice. Yet he practices really hard to get the screaming-growling thing without losing that voice every five minutes. So I’m, like, “Hats off to you.””

 

Bruce Dickinson

“Best two rock voices I’ve heard in a last few years both have been from grunge bands: it’s Eddie Vedder and the other one is Chris Cornell from Soundgarden.”

 

Bruce Dickinson

“Learn their lesson, that if you would teach people you first must capture their interest with news; that your service rather than your sermons must be your claim upon their attention; that what you say must be simple, and brief, and above all sincere – the unmistakable voice of true regard and affection.”

Bruce Barton

“I have a particular style of writing and my voice sounds a particular way, which lends itself to a certain style.”

Brooke Fraser

“Please reach out for help, your voice will save you.”

Brooke Axtell

“To give Tinker Bell a voice for the first time in history is such an honor.”

 

Brittany Murphy

“My singing voice isn’t like my speaking voice.”

 

Brittany Murphy

“I love Jessica Simpson. I love her voice. She’s amazing.”

 

Britney Spears

“I believe that music is God’s voice.”

 

Brian Wilson

“Sure, I do wish I sometimes got to play more heroes, but hey, I can’t beat the fact that I am working constantly. Anyway, look at me. I’m six-four, three feet wide, have a really deep voice, and this face; I’m not precisely the romantic comedy stereotype, right?”
