Sidenote I LOVE YOUR VOICE <3 <3
Not so much unattractive as not really reflective of me. It’s extremely high and girly and my singing voice has too much damn vibrato (it used to be a very flat tone, dunno when the vibrato went nuts). And yes I used to speak too low in an effort to be taken more seriously.
I also sound like I’m trying to affect an accent, but it’s mainly a matter of growing up with three distinct regional dialects (yep we have them in NZ) and trying to be understood when speaking. It’s not RP and I still drop into unaccented vowels regularly and roll my Rs sometimes like a good Southern girl. But it’s really not a broad Kiwi accent.
Oh yeah and years of singing lessons where you have to record your lesson and play it back? Uck- hearing both spoken and singing voice. But I am able to pick my voice out in choral/group recordings.
