Hi. I could use some help finding a proper studio voice
I'm in a peculiar situation and could use some help. I'm recording a cd with a rock band, but am struggling to convert the knowledge I've learned from taking voice lessons - learning to sing "properly" - and get them to work with the music. They either sound dull, too "classical", or I shift gears and sing aggressively. This works, but it tires me out, and it's not how I normally sing. It's like a nightmare.
I've listened to some singers in the same genre that I really like, and tried to understand what they're doing, so I can work up a natural approach that works with my own voice. Does anyone have any advice on a good way to bridge these disparate musical styles into cohesive whole that is healthy and works?
Private messaging would be great. I fear that if I don't figure this out quickly I may get punted from this dream gig.
