I’ve been classically trained for six years; enjoy playing the piano by ear and deciphering my favourite songs to sing along to. Always been influenced by Freddie mercury and have recently developed a keen interest in Lady Gaga.
You have a lovely voice! Very nice vibrato, carefully placed and your pitch matches most of the time. I love to hear some original music from you and unmask the lovely, sad & lonely, creature behind those dark shades. Now, you may not be any of those things, but the general sense presented is that you are hiding and the lyrics of the song you chose speak of a longing to understand or be understood.
So, I had to check out some of you other videos, to see what's behind the girl with the funky blue hair, big glasses and oversized sweatshirts. You're completely awesome and completely closed in. Let go sister! You tend to go for an alto voicing, which sometimes seems to low for you and in the Elton John song, where you go high, you seemed afraid to reach for it. You have all the qualities of a good musician and a good singer except that you've yet to express outwardly what music means to you inwardly.
My favorite visual is your video for the Kings of Leon song. We get to know you a lil' and see your face. I'd like to recommend that you spend some time in the mirror, singing to yourself. Bathrooms usually have good mirrors and a natural reverb that makes it fun to sing in. When you rock your own world you can rock anybody's world :)
What a lovely colour in your voice. I've checked your Coldplay and Elton John covers too and I find it really good. I would like to hear you singing about two notes higher with bigger strength and with no fear, which I am sure you can. In your Elton John cover you are about to attemp it but you seem to coward back. Have you got no myspace or similar for me to listen some original compositions. I'd really like to do it.
