Vocal Coach comments from Justin Stoney
Alê is just wonderful in this clip! His voice sounds clear, crisp, and vibrant. It is evident to me that he has done work on Mix Voice in order to achieve a voice that sounds so solid, yet is as effortless for him as talking. This allows him to be very conversational within his style. His skills as a musician and a guitarist are an added plus. There are not a lot of technique “problems” going on in this performance. However, I would encourage Alê to be a little bit more adventurous in terms of texture, dynamics, and also range. By texture, I mean that he could use some more aspirate textures (like “breathiness”) and compressed textures (like Vocal Fry) within his sound. This along with some additional dynamics (louds and softs) could give his sound more variety. Since this is a folk style, it is not necessary to sing in a high tessitura. However, “optioning up” to some higher notes or changing the key to highlight his upper notes a little more will also give Alê some additional variety.
