Dancing On My Own (Robyn Acoustic Cover)
on: February 12, 2019, 12:37:26
Hello! I've been productive this morning recording a slowed down acoustic version of Robyn's 'Dancing On My Own' which to me is the best pop song of the past decade. Please let me know what you think :)

I have been thinking for a while with your songs that we haven't been hearing your own voice. By that I mean modal (chest) voice.
This song is a great example where you are singing around E4 and even higher that is typically up at the limit of a non-supported male voice.
I suspect that you are pushing your chest voice to get those high notes, if I was singing an E4 I'd be in head voice or a chest / head mix.

What I'd love to hear is you singing this song an octave lower that you have done here. It's what I would naturally do and I think you might be surprised at all the richness that is in this area of a male voice. It's the story-telling area ... the one that many of the great singer /songwriters have inhabited and still do.

Go on, give it a go and repost it as an experiment so we can hear the difference.

Thanks Mr B, sound advice that I really appreciate, and I really appreciate you taking an interest in my music :)
I'm going to re-record the vocals as you suggested and see how it turns out :)

Interesting idea @MrBouzouki ......try it out, Kev. I'd love to hear it.

HI @realkevm

I think the same as @MrBouzouki
I am sure that finding the position of your voice will allow you to feel more at ease when you sing, this is something that I have been discovering little by little because although I am not a singer, I enjoy singing

From my own experience, I have been able to verify the pleasure of singing with the right tone for your voice.
Until next time. I hope to hear you sing with your true voice.
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times
