Maya Villacreces

Vocal Coach comments from Juliet Russell

Maya, I got a real sense of you from this performance. I loved the count in at the beginning and the visual of you bringing your shades down – a memorable piece of performance! It is a really charming video and it made me smile. I like that you sing with personality and that you have a distinctive look and sound. The stops work really well and emphasise the playfulness of your delivery. Even though your eye contact is obscured with sunglasses, you still have the ability to connect with your audience. This is helped by you singing to the camera and leaning in. Your posture may not be helping your singing much, but this song doesn’t require a high vocal intensity so you get away with it. One thing to work on – there are quite a few large intervals between notes in this song, so practice those big jumps as you are not always nailing the pitch on the higher notes. The end of the chorus is spot on though. Lots of personality and I enjoyed it a lot.

  • Maya, this was a fun and quirky performance! Lots of personality coming through, and you have something unique that you just don’t hear in the charts these days. This is a good thing – you’re not a copycat artist. Keep going with the acoustic style. I’d totally buy your album!
