Timothy Christian Liu

Vocal Coach comments from David Combes

Thanks for submitting this song Timothy. You obviously enjoy singing it and that comes across in your performance. You really made me smile and nothing is more endearing to an audience than watching and listening to a singer who obviously loves singing. This is a deceptively difficult song to sing and needs the perfect balance of effort so it is technically secure but feels almost like the singer is reading a piece of beautiful poetry – not easy when Paul McCartney is so comfortable at the top of his voice, making those high notes feel effortless! I would like to suggest that you think about the amount of effort you are making, could you lower the muscular effort in your tongue root, throat and larynx and still get the notes? Possibly this, plus your posture over the guitar, is contributing to a sense of tension, which is also affecting the eveness of your vibrato. Taking some of this effort away and smoothing out your vibrato might help make this feel even more personal – begin by recording your own backing track and singing along, standing up, with good posture.

    Sweet, Timothy. Well done.

    Hi Timothy, I thought your performance was nicely executed; the melody was (to my ear) spot-on. For someone who classifies themselves as an intermediate singer, it would seem you have a very strong foundation from which to work. I hope to hear another example of your work in the near future… Cheers, Jeff

    Hi everyone, thank you for the lovely comments and feedback. I gave an early entry for this competition – this was several months ago, and now I am way better than who I was. I will work even harder to achieve my goals as a singer. Have a blessed day everyone!

    Thanks and blessings,
    Tim :)
