If you are using an easy song to warm-up in front of the audience…if you are mindlessly warming up while driving to your next gig… if you cramming in quick la-la-la in the green room before you sing, you are doing your audience, yourself and your craft a huge disservice.
Imagine being 68 years-old, singing and playing music you love to sold out crowds across the globe… this is the life of Dave Mason, Hall of Fame inductee and singer/song writer/ guitarist of the 60’s band Traffic. This week,I was lucky enough to see his Denver concert and meet him back-stage. Here are 6 things Dave Mason does to keep his voice youthful, plus a vocal exercise to use elements of your natural speaking voice to help you sing with ease.
Do you struggle with a breathy tone, laryngal fatigue, or vocal placement that feels too far back?
Then this “kəniiiii” vocal warm-up is your “ninja” move to master… it is quick, focused, and gets the job done!
