Dream Theater Singer Talks Modern Vocal Influences: 'Sleeping With Sirens, I See Stars, Bring Me the Horizon'
Dream Theater singer James LaBrie has been talking with Artist Direct about his modern vocal influences.

As the singer notes, he keeps a finger on the pulse of modern rock and metal thanks to the influence of his son:

"I would say Sleeping With Sirens, I See Stars, Bring Me the Horizon. Those guys off the top of my head. I've always liked Ryan Tedder from One Republic, I think he's got a great voice. It's got a lot of emotion.

"Killswitch Engage ... I'm saying the names of the bands cause I'm drawing a blank on these guys' names right now ... Tesseract ... he's got a great voice. My son turned me on to a lot of those bands. I'll walk past his bedroom and be like 'who's that?' Tesseract is a great band ... really excited with those guys."
