Philip Dementiev

Vocal Coach comments from Daniel Zangger Borch

You have a cool voice and your natural tone quality (I call this your “Vocal ID”) is lovely. I suggest you try to sing less “twangy.” Even though this is a part of your natural Vocal ID it is a bit overused, especially on the ’ai’ diphthong. Leave out the twang on a couple of those, then it will have more impact when it´s there.
On a song like this and with your kind of voice I would focus more on standing still to make people focus on your singing – when you move like you do now it takes some focus off the singing, at least for me. Try to stand there, maybe walk a little, slowly, then people will surely pay even more attention to that strong voice of yours.

Why I chose Philip Dementiev as a Finalist

Philip has a great voice and I liked his authentic performance.
