Vocal Type: Mezzo-Soprano
Vocal Range: 3 Octaves 4 notes B2-F6
Whistle Register: Yes
Vocal Pluses:Light voice, with a pervading sweetness throughout. Mýa is capable of complex melisma (vocal runs) that can traverse through her registers with ease and speed.
Mýa's lower range is of mid-weight, with a dark colouring and hazy, breathy quality to it. It connects well to the solid and healthy midrange. Here the voice is fuller and rounded, more so than the other parts of the range, and has a character that makes it immediately attributable to the singer.
The belting range thins very quickly, at around a C5, gaining a youthful colouring and a more biting tone as it continues rising. However, the voice is mixed well, meaning that it can reach an impressive F5 without any indication of strain or stress on the vocal chords.
Mýa's head voice can be soft, breathy and warm with an easy quality to it- some would call this her falsetto- or can be solid, bright and clear with a strong resonance.
Overall it is a characterful voice that has a unique sound and style to it.
Vocal Negatives: Mýa's lowest notes sound as if they are being reached via improper, unhealthy technique. Also the top of her belting range produces a tone that isn't necessarily pleasant to hear.
