Alex Katsi – If We Get Out Of Here

Vocal Coach Bio from Gina Latimerlo:

The video is well produced, and the song has a nice drive to it. You are talented as a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist. It’s clear that you live your music and that it is really important to you. In the first verse (especially), I would suggest allowing your voice to be more legato – connect the words into a smoother melody. That way, the line will feel more like a sentence (not broken up parts) and you’ll both communicate more effectively and create a more rich auditory experience (the instrumentals underneath are so staccato there that singing staccato there as well feels redundant).

Alex’s Bio:

My name is Alex Katsi, I am a musician, I play solo and I also play bass and sing in a band International Naughty Boy. I love creating and performing music and am lucky enough to be in a position to do that on a daily basis. This is my first solo music video and would love some feedback on the video and the music…


  • I disagree with the reviewer on this one: I don’t think a legato delivery in the verse would necessarily improve the performance of the song. I liked the rhythmic delivery on the first and third verses more than the second…and overall, I think it worked pretty well. The second verse seemed a little “behind the beat” vocally…so maybe I would concede that a legato vocal delivery would have been cool at that point just for variety’s sake. Overall, I liked the song and I always dig a musician who can play multiple instruments with looping pedals. I would have liked to hear you take the vocals up a notch at the end and explore your upper range…but that’s a personal taste. Nice work.
