Hello! My name is Miquan, I am 26 years old and I sing r&b soul and pop and I am trying to stretch my repertoire of music into the rock side. I'm looking to front my own band so that I can travel and get paid to sing. I have been singing since the age of 9. Here is my issue. I have been suffering from vocal damage for quite some time now. I'm pretty sure it's either nodules or polyps. My tone is EXTREMELY breathy and my voice becomes fatigued after a short period time of singing or warming up. It feels like my voice is much thicker, breathier and it affects how I speak. Some days my voice feels fine but most of the time it's not. The morning seems to be the best time for me vocally and then my abilities start to wane throughout the day. I spent years ruining my voice trying to emulate Michael Jackson's voice distortion. I've been vegetarian for almost 3 years and I only drink water (room temperature). Also I recently bought the 2.0 course. Will the exercises help me with my vocal issues? What's some advice or exercises to help repair my condition? I would really appreciate it!
