What Is Session Singing?

Leading Session Singer Kim Chandler shares with singers what session singing is and the kinds of paid singing work it can lead to.

Many of you know about Kim’s incredible session singing and teaching career – she has recorded and/or performed with The Bee Gees, Brian May, Björk, Michael McDonald, Natalie Cole, Michael Bolton, Susan Boyle, Uriah Heep and many, many others.

(Kim is currently developing a new vocal cross training app for all singers – you can find more about that below…)

Kim’s Voice Cross Trainer App is available now. It’s based on her popular “Funky ‘n Fun” vocal training series.
