Vocal Coach comments from Juliet Russell
Roman – It’s great to see a live performance video. It takes a lot of courage to sing in a situation like that, in front of your peers and with minimal instrumentation. There’s an emotional honesty and vulnerability to your performance, especially in the verses. When the dynamic builds musically, you need to be able to match this vocally and find more strength in your sound. You could practice better vocal fold closure as its hard to be dynamic with a breathy sound. Try some exercises using a gentle glottal onset to feel the sensation of the vocal folds meeting.
In terms of performance, physically let the audience know that you are ready. Your body language could be a lot more positive and commanding. You have a habit of looking down and actually bringing the shoulders forward and down. This is also having an impact on your breath support that will help you to sustain the longer phrases.
Thank you for sending in your video. It’s a pleasure to hear different singers, styles and songs.
