Maybe it's just what your voice does. Could it be allergy related? I have the same kind of thing going on and I believe it's from allergies. My teacher suggested that I see an ent doctor because even my talking voice has some gravel to it. If my insurance covers it I might go. It really wasn't a big concern of mine until I started classical singing.

Rasp on high notes without effort? If I were you, I'd want to KEEP it :) . I'm still working on minimizing the effort it takes to put rasp on my high notes and also to be able to have only very, very little rasp - kind of "smokey" if you will. I love that sound.

Jonpall, somehow I doubt it's good rasp if he's concerned about it. Like Joan Rivers rather than Lou Gramm. I think it has to do with placement, neugie. Look up the concept of singing above the pencil by Mellissa Cross. And oh yeah, are you a smoker?

neugie,

are you raspy or hoarse just speaking? have you noticed any strain or volume or pitch changes?

has singing become more effortful?

take a tip from me. just to be on the safe side, get scoped by your e.n.t.

having been to three e.n.t.'s recently i can tell you, raspiness or hoarseness in and of itself is not normal.
