The Austin Butler Elvis Voice (2019-2023)
It’s the kind of tragedy you can totally foresee, but it’s painful nonetheless. Austin butlerwho took up the Acting Method to play Elvis Presley IN by Baz Luhrmann Elvisannounced that the voice he accepted to play the king of Rock and Roll is no longer with us.
Butler did not hash the above word The Graham Norton Program, where he told his landlord, through Weekly entertainment, “I’m removing the voice.” (“Removed”…? So ominous! We hope death is quick and painless.) “But I probably hurt my vocal cords with all the songs. there,” Butler added. “A song takes 40 times.”
Though living only a short life, Austin Butler’s Elvis Voice-alike many previous loud vocal performances—has gained quite a reputation. Sources told The Daily Beast it spent time with by Lady Gaga Gucci’s house voice before Butler announced its demise. The decline in accent seems to have begun in January at Golden Globe Awards Ceremonywhere viewers seem bewildered when they notice Butler is still using it.
Butler discussed the thorough preparation he went through to play Presley; for three years he did not break his personality and did not see his family. (We’re sure they’re relieved that both he and his normal voice are back.) Talk to E! News on the Golden Globes red carpet, Butler said his continuation of Elvis stretch was “for me, it’s hard to talk about… I can’t really think too much about it. Just this process—I don’t know the difference.”
After receiving the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama Series, Butler offered further insights into The Voice while speaking to reporters backstage. “I don’t think I still sound like him, but I guess I do because I’ve heard it a lot,” he said. “I often liken it to when someone lives in another country for a long time. I’ve had three years where that’s been my sole focus in life, so I’m sure only pieces of my DNA will always be linked that way.”
Speaking to ABC after the ceremony, Butler’s vocal coach Irene Bartlett affirms that the audio slides are “genuine” and “not fake.”
“I don’t know how long that will last, or if it will be there forever,” she said.
If only we knew what we know now: It’s not forever. (Well, many of us know that, but a foretold loss is equally a loss.) Like all good things, Austin Butler’s Elvis Voice has come to an end—out gone but not forgotten, aloof but never silent.
