A modern singer of today who has a voice thats a cross between Orbison, Elvis and a little sprinkling of Pavarotti thrown in for good measure is Raul Malo. When I listen to this guy sing he has one foot firmly placed in the past and thats a pretty damn good place to be
When the Mavericks became popular Raul was hailed as the 'new' Roy Orbison. So was Chris Isaak. Not that there will ever be anyone really like him.
