Vocal Coach comments from Mary Carewe
Your voice has a wonderful warm quality and the ‘airiness’ around the sound is very attractive. I love the idea of using the violin and loop pedals but it is maybe a bit of a challenge from a tuning point of view – it was hard to be sure where the centre of the pitch for the song was. As it progressed this became more of an issue for me. Despite liking the sound of your voice I wasn’t convinced about the tuning because of the way the track built up and this was more marked as the vocal lines were layered. I am sure that this concept is something you can develop (please do!) – really concentrate on making sure the violin loops have great tone and pitch and then the song will sound more grounded and show off your lovely voice.
