Mara from Karmafree

Vocal Coach comments from Jaime Vendera

Hey Mara, digging the vibe you’re putting out on this song. Great voice, great music! Love your vocal runs. They have a slight Egyptian feel to them, which I always thought was cool. They set a nice emotion to the song and show your strengths. I also like how you lighten up and then lean into the tone of your voice to change between falsetto and full voice. It further adds to the vulnerability you’re projecting emotionally for this tune.  If I had any suggestion, it would be to enunciate just a hair more. But honestly, that’s not eve a criticism because I do understand that some words are not meant to be over-enunciated, depending upon the song. So, it is just a suggestion and may not work for you depending upon your overall goal for this song. I do have one complaint though, well, it’s more of a request from a whining vocal coach, ha-ha. I am a harmony freak, so as I am listening, I yearn for more harmonies, which your friends don’t kick in until the end of the song. If you could work with your backing singers and lock in more harmonies, more often, this would sound even more awesome.
