Before you start judging your singing make sure of this! You’ve learned the bloody lyrics. All too often we judge the singing when we’re reading the lyrics, this is impossible! Noone sounds authentic or has any freedom in their voice when they’re reading. I think this is sometimes why (absolutely amazing) session singers get a bad name. You cannot sing and sound authentic if you’re reading. Sorry. This is my absolute nemesis. It requires consistent repetition and understanding the structure of the song too. So ok start with the lyrics and get to know the song but then get rid of them as soon as possible. It’s ok to fail but fail taking a risk……..
