To me, a true singer is one who not only uses brilliant technique, but one who expresses themself artistically. In my experience, vocal artistry comes from a variety of things including, musicality and dynamics. Most of all, however, it comes from emotional expression.
When I sing, I love to tell stories. To paint pictures and adjust moods simply through changing the way I am sharing an emotion: its intensity, its texture, and its nuances. For me it is all of the little things lying in the way a song is expressed that make it convincing.
I’m not a stage diva. Nor am I interested in blowing anyone away with vocal power. Rather I wish to move people deeply through the way I express a song. I believe it is this connection that is truly powerful.
From Rock to Jazz, from Country to my own original music, my wish is to connect to my audience expressively.
I developed my voice over time through passion, dedication, and practice. And that’s really all it takes, isn’t it? Having a goal and working towards it.
My goal is – and trust me I’m still working on it – to be the best singer that I can be. What is yours? Whether your goal is to rock the stage or to sing confidently amongst friends, I believe my vocal technique will work for you. How do I know this? Because it is has worked for me.
