Vocal Coach comments from Jeannette LoVetri
Very beautiful, lovely, innocent voice and singing. It’s important to learn how to breathe correctly for singing and explore what your voice can do beyond it’s own natural way of being expressive. The issue is that the sound is always the same, the delivery of each verse and phrase was exactly the same and the pronunciation of the words was lazy enough to be distracting rather than helpful. Keep working on your singing, as you have made a good start.
Ellie Occleston's bio
Ellie is 15 years old, originally from near Liverpool (UK) but lives in Madrid (Spain).
She is being trained to sing Classically (she is a soprano) which with her inherent musical ability allows her to effectively deliver vocals both in Classical arias and in the Pop/Indie genre across a wide range of songs – she has an instantly identifiable vocal which people have described as “unique” and “addictive” !!!
Her musical tastes are very broad and include Opera and Pop/Indie music and in all of her songs Ellie tries to select ones in which she can apply her unique vocals to, she says “in order to bring a new feeling and sound to songs, as well as exposing people to songs and artists they may not have listened to before”.
Ellie´s overall aim is to continue to mature into being a strong and well-rounded artist who is able to share her music with as many people as possible and her view is that “there are so many fantastic songs and musicians out there, including new and young artists, which is really exciting to be a part of and I hope we are all successful in sharing our music and bringing fun and enjoyment into people´s lives – as for me that’s what music is all about”.
She already has a number of wonderfully supportive fans and says “they have all been absolutely amazing – all I do is sing and they help in so many ways with great and encouraging feedback, which really gives me the confidence and motivation to try more and different types of songs”.
