So can an older cat sing like that?
My name is Michael and I am new here. After years of frustrating dead ends with vocalists I have decided to finally try to take on vocal duties myself to achieve the sounds I hear in my head over my own original music. I have tried male and female vocalists and have worked with some great talent but the dedication factor is usually non existent! My main concern is that I am 43 and just starting. Is this too old to have a great, powerful voice for metal? Some of my favorites are Geoff Tate, Midnight, Michael Kiske, Michael Sweet. and others of that ilk with the ringing higher notes but my favorites by far are Tom Englund, Matt Barlow and Jorne Lande. I don't smoke or drink and haven't been ruining my voice for years. Is this doable and are these lessons the vehicle to get me where I want to be? Much thanks for any help and/or info!
