Vocal Coach comments from Ron Browning
You have nice resonance in your middle voice with easy edge, and you do a fine job on the guitar. However, the dramatic emotional interpretation is causing you to tense up. I hear tightness in those back muscles as you brace into the tone. Do not work so hard to project your voice. You don’t do that in conversation, do you? Just relax. Try singing on a little less air and you won’t feel the need to over support. Eliminate the guttural attacks (“I’m going…”) as well as the vibrato on “clothes” and elsewhere. Keep the lips relaxed and avoid squeezing on the “ee” vowel when it appears on sustained notes. You’re a little pitchy sometimes, especially on the vocal licks. Drop the emotional breath and tone and this song should play out like a charm for you. I encourage you to find your own phrasing with this tune and forget about Harry Nilsson. Pretend you wrote it. Put your eyes on one point of focus and that will help ground you. This is a great tune to show off your voice though. Keep up the good work!
