Vocal Coach comments from The VoiceCouncil Team

You had a great energy throughout your performance. If you are regularly posting on YouTube, you may want to think about your ‘stage’ to really catch people’s eye. Some fairy lights on a blank wall would do it! Vocally, your breathy tone caused you to run out of breath a few times, and you let it show on your face. Try this: breathe in a lot before the phrase, keep a good posture and see how long you can go before re-tanking. Or you could slow down the song and give yourself designated breath points. Or you could clean up your tone to stop so much air leaking out by using glottal onsets. If you were sitting in that video, try standing for more vocal and breath control.

Beth O'Reilly's bio

I’m an 18 year old singer songwriter from the isle of Ireland. I started writing songs when I was around 8, but I set up my youtube channel when I was 13 so that I could share it with family and friends. In November 2015, I released my debut EP “See You In November” which got to number one on the Irish iTunes Charts. I’ve currently working on my first full length album!
