Practical vocal training tips for singers
In the worlds of rock, folk, hip-hop, “indie,” metal, and punk — formal vocal training is often regarded with suspicion. Singers don’t want to smooth the rough edges; they don’t want too polished a vocal timbre; they don’t want to sound inauthentic.
I get it — but at the same time you don’t want to end up like Adele, with inflamed or bursting polyps all over your vocal cords, and a year or more of recovery (if you’re lucky enough to get your voice back at all).
Towards that end, I thought I’d compile a list of great articles from the Echoes Blog that will help you limit vocal strain during performances and aid quicker vocal recovery afterwards.
