• Find out why a straw is your new best friend..

    My first singing tip video is here! I hope you will find them useful- I keep them short and sweet, so leave a comment or message me if you would like more information. This exercise helps balance the air above and below the vocal folds- which helps them function efficiently and easily. This ultimately results in increased stamina, co-ordination and vocal range. Not a bad result for making silly sounds into a plastic tube!

    If you would like to learn more about your voice and how to look after it, read my post on vocal health. You can also ensure you are first in line to see upcoming tip videos by subscribing!

    I’ll be uploading a new video to my Youtube channel  every Monday. The videos are for you, so get in touch if there is a topic you would like me to cover.

    Keep singing!

  • Laura Marling’s new project- a podcast on gender, creativity and music

    Laura Marling Reversal of the Muse

    Laura Marling Reversal of the Muse

    With her smokey vocals and otherworldly lyrics,  Laura Marling is one of my favourite artists- so I was delighted to hear that her new project is a podcast!

    The series entitled Reversal Of The Muse started as a result of Laura’s conversations with friends about female creativity. In her own words,- ‘It occurred to me that in ten years of making records I had only come across two female engineers working in studios… I began to ask myself what difference it might have made had I had more women around, if any. I wanted to know why progress has been so slow in this area and what effect it would have on music.’

    It is certainly true that the production side of the industry is still dominated by men- but in the era of DIY music projects, more and more singer- songwriters and artists will need some production skills in order to progress.

    In her first podcast, Laura speaks to Vanessa Parr, an engineer who has worked with the likes of Elton John, John Mayer and Melody Bardot, followed by her second podcast with the incredible (female fronted) band HAIM.
