My Reactions to This Week’s Peer Review Vids
Kita – “Wide Open” (Original)
A ‘real’ R & B artist with believable runs. Would like to hear more depth of vocal sound. A stronger chest voice; add more resonance. Currently the voice is head dominated and the pitch, though usually spot on, can tend to slip in places. But I loved your overall quality. Very free and relaxed.
James Legros – “Skyfall” by Adele (Cover)
Sky fall video was pleasant. Decent arrangement. Voice sounds like it hasn’t settled yet, nor is it under control. But there was something distinctive and likable about your sound already. Made me remember when my voice first changed and I had to get used to this whole new instrument.
Vaughn Kristonne – “If I Believed” (Cover)
The voice general works very easily, but intonation and control are badly needed. I’ve heard singers who’ve struggled far more than you and have learned to ‘lock on’ to pitches. You’re the kind of singer who’se passion will drive you – the kind of singer that I like to work with and demonstrate that anyone can learn control.
