Voice Overs with Chicksinger Studios!
Yup, and it’s so much fun!! I’ve been doing more studio work of late and I am having an absolute ball! Jingles and voice over has always interested me and it seems to be coming my way more frequently. In fact, it’s high time I sign up with an agency and really get things rolling! My reel is growing by the minute! Here’s my SoundCloud to hear a few moments of my latest work. I have about 5 more tracks to upload so be sure to subscribe to hear the new ones! Oh and here’s a shot from my recent voice overs and jingle work. It is so interesting and different from other work I’ve done in the studio. I have recorded 2 CDs with my vocal jazzy-style girl group Dangerous Curves and it’s all about what we think and lush harmonies and finding our sweet sound. It’s all touch-y-feel-y and we might record our tracks or a particular moment several times over in the quest of our perfect sound.
In the case of jingles and voice overs, it’s all about what the client wants and thinks. Making them happy and giving them exactly what they want. Interpreting what they say and giving them the energy, verve and sound style they want to promote their product or business. I’m learning that’s an art in and of itself! It is very rewarding and very exciting when the client sends their happiness and thanks! I absolutely love it!
The other thing I’m taking to heart is all the detailed and laborious work I have been doing the last 2 years improving my ear and lengthening my vocal range. I study with an amazing teacher and mentor (I talk about Jimmy, here) and he is the one who completely turned me on to the fact that I may have had a strong ear, but that I needed a “studio” ear. A “harmony and piano” ear, if you will. So, not only did I practice and work on it with him, I got this app for my iPad. I use it for my students, too. It’s not easy, but it does make it more like a game, so more fun. The lessons and the upleveling of your voice is truly priceless. When you are in the studio or in a rehearsal, there is no time to waste. You will sing and speak more cleanly and more correctly than you ever thought possible! And, no! You won’t lose your creativity or your special sound! These are simply tools to make you be the best performer, studio singer and voice over artist, possible.
