Any hope for an older singer?

Just wanting your opinion on whether i am trainable or not! I have been a musician for a while, but only started singing as a solo artist in restaurants and pubs 10 months ago, at the tender age of 59! I don't rate my singing as great, and get away with a lot of sins by disguising the vocals with tone and effects when singing live! I'm not sure if my voice is trainable at my age? (Talk about a late bloomer! lol) Anyway, let me know. I have put up some tracks on reverbnation, my best in my humble opinion being my own original, "wakeup"....the covers aren't that great 😞

    Thank you Klaus and Shane - you guys answered my question and confirmed that my doubts about me progressing at my age were silly - age is not a factor - yes, i have to work harder at it than than younger guys, but i know i can do it, and "make music the last thing i will ever do!"

    Hi @leevee ,

    I am Marco and I am 48 years old. I will turn 49 in July. I started Singing 9 months ago.

    I listened also to "Wakeup" - very, veeeeery cool vibe. Good pitch, very good musical feeling. Hey, man, you definitely will grow if you work on your voice. Klaus found nice words:

    as long as you are alive, you are still trainable ;)

    A very warm Welcome form Germany,
