JulieF Where does YOUR singing style come from? (59* d) RE: Where does YOUR singing style come from? 20 Dec 05

Thanks Jerry

I certainly think that where I'm coming from will definately influence what I choose to sing to start with - more the bluesy end of Jazz than the later stuff and in someways I'm looking to influence how I sing folk - perhaps changing my range a wee bit and building on the experience of working with musicians.    In someways its quite good to come to working with jazz musicians from being almost totally unaccomapnied ( except for bflat whistle).   I didn't want to try and have my voice classically trained as I know a few people who are trying to unlearn vocal training of this sort - in the same way as I know classically trained fiddlers who unlearned things.

The really interesting thing is whether I can can pull off the performance aspect tomorrow night - microphone, piano, bass, drum and audience of jazz players. Just a wee bit different from session singing.

Could be fun providing the nerves don't get me and I lay off the beer until afterwards.
