Vangelis Polydorou

Vocal Coach comments from Gillyanne Kayes and Jeremy Fisher

Great sound and good control, especially moving between falsetto and chest and use of flips and licks. It’s all there vocally! Try engaging your audience more. Decide who the camera represents (an eavesdropper or a best friend). Either ignore the camera completely to create a scene, or use the camera as an intimate friend that you can look away from or into their eyes for the important phrases. We need to feel the emotion you’re going through, rather than watching you get lost in loving the song. Practise two scenarios – the first is a live gig: imagine you are singing the song to 1 person, then to 3 people spread out in the room, then mentally to a large audience in a darkened stadium. The second is the intimate friend/camera who is 20 centimetres away from you. Whichever focus you choose, the song is intimate and your eyes must draw us in.
