rumbled and bellowed, slowly and powerfully

I’m a baritone, which practically means I can sing most of the tenor and most of the bass. Bert was a true bass. His voice would only go so high. He rumbled and bellowed, slowly and powerfully. Some people sing bass out of a musical laziness, avoiding the tenor because high notes strain the throat in a way bass notes don’t. When all the rest of the range is sung out, all I have left is a perpetually steady bass voice. Some men are tenors and sound strange when they push into the lower registers. Bert was a true bass. He sang low, just like Johnny Cash.
