Jess Glynne, Sam Smith & Adele… who next?!

There seems to be a trend that a number of ‘famous’ singers are suddenly coming up again some serious vocal health issues. It’s all down to vocal technique and of course the pressure of being a mainstream singer. I always like to compare singing to going to the gym. The muscle needs to be exercised […]

I don’t like the sound of my own voice.

If I had a pound for every time I’ve heard somebody say that they don’t like the way their voice sounds, I’d be a multi-millionaire. Well, maybe not quite but I’d be pretty rich! It’s such a funny thing. How many times have you heard your singing, or speaking voice, back on a recording and […]

Sing Now Choir. A new choir, for the community.

If you know me, you’ll know how much I believe in the ‘singing is for everybody’ ethos. If you’ve always wanted to sing in a choir but the thought of auditioning is a little scary or you sing with a choir but fancy something a little more contemporary, you should give this a go. My […]

My Recording Session with Dan…

I have sung with Love Soul Choir for 2 years, under the guidance of Dan and have also uploaded cover videos on to YouTube in the past. My first ever gig was in 2013 and since then, my confidence has grown as a singer and a performer. I’ve been wanting to record a more professional […]

Panic and anxiety.

This is a topic I don’t really talk about and that’s not because I want to keep it a secret. My closest friends and my family will know that I suffer with panic and anxiety and at times this can be in quite a big way. I want others to know that no matter how […]

Why should I sing with others? I’m not very good.

Singing really is for everybody. There are so many people out there who would instantly dismiss the idea of singing with others in a group or choir because in their eyes they’re ‘tone deaf’. Hardly anyone in the world is clinically tone deaf. If you know when somebody is asking you a question because of […]

The year to try new things.

The beginning of a new year can be full of goals and plans and it’s the perfect opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone. For me, I’m aiming to try to do something different every month. So far, I have plans to run a half-marathon, compete in a triathlon, do an indoor skydive […]
