Josh Schott – Sh-Boom cover

Vocal Coach Comments:
It’s always going to be challenge to replicate a 50’s Doo Wop tune with just one singer, but you did a good job of recreating the original track. Your lead vocal is definitely the highlight. Some of the harmony parts were a little heavy in the mix, and there were some note choices that require a rethink, e.g. the bass part that generally should be root notes. I felt that your version could’ve benefitted from a more musically adventurous arrangement, something to bring a new angle to it to freshen it up for 2014. This retro style certainly does suit you though.

Josh’s Bio:
I tend to travel by myself, smoke cigars, sing songs in my head , collect interesting things that I will never need, and spend plenty of time playing my guitar and singing. I am an old soul at heart.
