Against All Odds... Vocally Speaking: Is there ever a Change with No Change?
One of my friends likes to use this expression; “There is no change without change”.
Usually, it’s very much so true.
Lately, it’s been no secret that quite a few well-known singers have acquired a lot of vocal problems; bleeding vocal cords, polyps, nodules, dysphonia and other nasty vocal disorders.
Why is that... and what is the cause, you, my reader, may ask?
We often hear people saying:
“We love the voice, we love his or her songs, we love the emotions, we love the performance…”
So, what is the problem then?
The problem is that nobody knows (let alone singers themselves) or pays attention to the voice application and how exactly that voice is being used by the performers.
And yes, the industry usually picks up a good-looking person, quite often with good songwriting skills and with the potential of that person becoming a worldwide recording artist and performer. And yes, when it comes to recording, the best producers and engineers will be producing their "magic" using, available to them, their "magical" high-tech technology.
Now what? And what’s in store for the Artist?
Now it’s time to go on tour, to promote their record…
And then… There is a “surprise”.
So, the tours are cancelled and everybody is cutting their losses; the Artist, the management, the record company…? (See: Cancelled Tours and Rescheduled Shows... Is there a way to prevent that from happening... Let's Find Out?)
In this time and age, it is a very well-known fact that the best revenues acquired by all parties involved, would be those derived from the live venues. So, now the voices have to be fixed somehow and preferably, in a quick fashion, so the Artist would not be forgotten and the tour in the future would not be in jeopardy. As a Non-Surgical Voice Repair specialist, I could testify that all of the above, nevertheless, is not an easy task. However, by employing the use of my innovative Vocal Science™ technique and proper voice application, it is, in most cases, doable.
Nevertheless, the voice, in that instance, will still sound much clearer, much crispier and overall, much healthier.
I guess those would be the positive changes, as a consequence of the voice now being "lifted" off of the vocal cords and the vocal box in general, and thus, structured and placed in the singer’s facial muscles instead of the throat, thus relieving the vocal anatomy from the unnecessary pressure of the sound.
Much easier said than done, but the mission MUST be accomplished.
I, indeed, need to produce THE REAL CHANGE… but, in reality, with NO CHANGE to the artist's likeness...
