Whitney Houston and Michael McDonald Walk Into A Bar...
It does sound like the start of a terrible
joke, doesn't it?
I decided to film two acoustic covers today and upload them to YouTube as part of my "Tommy Sings..." project, both of which I'd posted previously as demos on here. I figured I'd post them in the vocal demonstrations section as I think they both show how much KTVA has helped me develop my voice already, especially when it comes to developing a softer voice rather than belting. As my voice recovers from having been blown out through oversinging, I'm focusing on this gentler delivery and working on some different cover versions from diverse sources; largely to push myself creatively, but also to explore my voice and different ways to use it.
The first video is my reworking of Whitney Houston's "All The Man I Need" - Excuse the dodgy tuning on the guitar, the intonation is screwed and it never stays in tune, plus I generally suck at guitar...hahahaha!
Next is my take on Michael McDonald's "I Keep Forgetting"
Any and all feedback welcomed as there's definitely areas for improvement, especially around onsets, pitch and vowel/consonant modifications.
