Casey Raines – Walking original song

Vocal Coach Comments from Dane Chalfin:
The first thing I would do is kick the tempo up by about 10bpm to remove any sense of “laidbackness.” You’re using great Twang on the bottom end of your range but it’s dropping on the high notes. Most people find that their internal perception of Twang is much higher in their upper range than what is actually coming out to the audience. I’d try rating how twangy the high notes sound to you on a scale of 1-10 then add 2-4 points internally to get it to come across edgier to the audience. You also might try raising this key a couple of semitones as well to add some more edge.

Casey’s Bio:
I am singer/songwriter, I am passionate about writing and love to play out so that I can see what people think of my music. I have had many great opportunities to open for people like Sheryl Crow, Steve Azar, The Trailer Park Choir and a few others. Currently, I have a great band and we have been finishing writing and learning many new songs in the studio. Currently we are booking and looking to add more dates to play locally and outside of our area as well.
