Singers Are Not A Commodity

There’s something I want you to tattoo on your heart: Other singers (ie. your competitors) are irrelevant. I hear a lot of singers stressing: “Oh…but so many other singers are already doing this [song, genre. style].” Okay……..so what?!?!?!? Does that mean that they’re the ONLY singer who can be successful in your space? That there’s only room for one person to succeed in your genre? Heck NO! Listen: if you’re a pro singer – your audience is NOT *just* buying a performance. When your listeners are scouring iTunes for new music, they’re not just buying your song. When you audition, the panel is not just buying your ability to deliver a performance. They are buying into YOU. Your energy, your point of view, your ESSENCE. Yes, of course they want a song or a performance – but they can get that from a million other singers and a million other songs. But do they WANT to do that? No! They want someone they can relate to. They want someone who speaks to them. They want the experience of engaging with YOU. THAT IS WHY: SINGERS ARE *NOT* A COMMODITY. It doesn’t matter how many other singers do the exact same

The Talented Singer Burnout Spiral

I just got off the phone with a brilliant singer whose career has been dying a slow death over the last few years (goes back before Covid).  She has a wonderful instrument, tons of talent and so much passion. But her recordings don’t make an impact, she has no real fan momentum, her live shows don’t get her any traction…….and it’s killing her career. Thing is, she’s working her tail off: Practicing every day. Writing/recording/releasing new material all the time. Networking. Auditioning for opportunities. Posting on Instagram six times a day. Grinding out YouTube videos. Doing everything she can to get noticed……but she just can’t seem to rise above the noise. Like so many other talented singers, she’s stuck in the talented singer burnout spiral.  With so many singers out there all fighting to be relevant, she’s twisting herself into pretzels just to get noticed. But in doing so, the game is over before it’s even started. The bottom line: it all comes back to the voice. If you’re not performing in a way that makes an impact…your story, your music, and YOU will never break through the noise to get the attention you deserve. BUT…what if there were another way?

How Long Does It Take To See Results In Your Singing?

Let’s talk about RESULTS for a second……there are so many online voice teachers and singing workshops these days, but do they actually deliver lasting results in your singing, and if so, how long does it actually take to SEE results?  Most singers have been conditioned by voice teachers to believe that singing at the level they want is a looooooong and gradual process.  And they’re right in the sense that if you do it their way – the old, traditional way –  it IS a long and gradual process. But what if there were another way to get results MUCH more quickly? What if there was something different then the online voice teachers and singing workshops you’ve been doing that have disappointed you because you’re STILL dealing with the same old issues in your singing and your career? Today I want to introduce you to the fabulous blues/folk singer-songwriter Grace Theisen. Grace is a blues/folk singer-songwriter who went from being sidelined by the effects of nerves, tension and vocal fatigue to blazing a new trail in her career with rock solid confidence in her voice, zero vocal fatigue AND a brand new record. . . . .in EIGHT WEEKS.  If

What Is The 2 Month Intensive Program?

Before I get into the real purpose of this email, I want to invite you to consider something.  And that is…….we are all in this pandemic together, and we are all handling these extraordinary circumstances in our own unique way.  For me, I think it’s important that I still run my studio as normally as possible, as it supports not only the hundreds of singers in our tribe, but also financially supports my team and my family – which in turn supports the economy.  If you would prefer NOT to hear about programs I am offering, please click ‘Unsubscribe’ at the bottom of this message and we’ll be sure to exclude you from any future emails.  And, if you’re someone for whom a program like The 2 Month Intensive, along with my personal support and the support of other amazing singers doing the real work to get past their blocks to succeed like crazy when this is all over, would be helpful right now… please read on.  Thank you so much for your consideration and remember you can always join me for my FREE live weekly trainings in my Facebook Group “The Pro Singer Success Collective” here. So, what is The 2 Month Intensive

I’m here for you if you need support!   FINANCIAL RELIEF FOR MUSICIANS Effected by Covid-19 The Recording Academy and its affiliated charitable foundation launched a COVID-19 Relief Fund to help those in the music community affected by the pandemic.

Career Advice For Singers During COVID-19

Some career advice for singers during Covid-19…… I’ve been thinking about time lately. (Covid-19 is definitely making me introspective these days!) Being stuck at home without the usual daily routine – I’m experiencing time so much differently than usual. And I’m so present to the fact that none of us are promised a tomorrow. That could be seen as very morbid, or it could be really motivating depending on your mindset. And I know that a lot of you reading this may not yet be where you want to be in your life, in your singing or in your career yet. Then the thought came to me…..what if there were a pill that could magically get you to that next level in your career right this moment, would you take it? Of course you would! Who wouldn’t want to skip all the periods of self-doubt and angst we go through on this artistic journey? But then the thought came to me……….what if it doesn’t have to be such a struggle? The more time I spend working with mind/body connections in singers, the more I am convinced that the “magical pill” to unlocking the consistency and growth we all want, is in understanding how to use Present Moment

SINGERS IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: How To Stay Sane While Everything Is Going A Little Nuts

Here’s a little hope and help for performers during Covid-19. The pandemic is obviously top of mind for everyone right now, and it’s affecting each of us in different ways. Today I wanted to bring you some of the training I do with the singers in my Intensive Program because the same ideas can be really helpful to center yourself amid Coronavirus and everything associated with it. There are some great tools and reframes in here to help you find some sanity and grace amid all that we are experiencing right now. You can access it by clicking below to watch. SINGERS IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: How to stay sane while everything is going a little nuts. I want to support you in the ways that I can to give you some hope right now and this video training is just one small gesture. The performing community is dealing with a lot of fear and uncertainty right now given the effects of COVID-19 on our industry.   The ideas in this video are aimed at guiding you to create a new emotional home for yourself around the challenges we are all facing.   In doing so, I hope you will

The Age Old Question: Is It You….Or Is It Your Teacher?

Throughout my many years of training, I’ve done singing programs and worked with teachers before that DIDN’T do a great job. One didn’t even bother to give me any critique – I spent $200 to blaze through song after song….I can do THAT at a karaoke bar for free! Another program’s information page was totally misleading (and the program was incomplete), and another teacher turned out to be incredibly verbally abusive. It didn’t matter – because I sang around the world and performed for thousands anyway. You know why? Because I DECIDED that I would. The truth is: even 1 small, new idea can have such a big a ripple effect on your singing and your career…..even if executed imperfectly. Of course – as a coach, I make sure I give my singers everything they sign up for AND MORE – but ideas *alone* don’t get you the results. YOUR EXECUTION DOES. DECIDE you’re gonna get a return on the training you invest in. Implement the ideas, take it to out into the world, run with it. Implementation is the only path to breaking in and making a big impact with your voice. Get moving and get your dream! If you

Truth Bomb

I’m gonna be brutally honest for a second. Right now, there are thousands of singers trying to make it in this business. They’re twisting themselves into pretzels to be, sound and look like what they think the industry wants. They’re obsessively focused on mastering technique. They’re going on TV reality shows like The Voice, Idol  and AGT just to get noticed. They’re even paying  to perform instead of getting paid to perform (pay-to-play gigs and YAPs). And despite all of that, most of them aren’t even close to getting paid to sing regularly, much less touring around the world to widespread acclaim. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know that the strategies I mentioned above – people pleasing the industry, technique tunnel vision, reality shows and “pay-to play” gigs  – are absolutely worthless, in my opinion. If you want a world class singing career, you’ll never get there in a million years if you do those things. There’s a much shorter path. But is that the REAL reason talented, professional singers are struggling? No. The real reason is that most of these singers lack vulnerability. VULNERABILITY. When they perform, they present a façade of who they think they need to

Change Your Singing With One Question

Have you seen yourself and other singers asking: “But what if it doesn’t work out?” “What if I’m never able to make a living as a singer?” “What if I’m rejected by the industry?” “What if I’m never able to break in?” “What if try it and fail?” “What if I can’t do it after all the training and effort?” This one question stunts most singers’ growth severely. It prevents you from taking a chance, from doing something differently, from having a shot at success. And in the meantime, most singers asking this question are wasting the MOST important non-renewable resource in their life: TIME. While this question continues to run on the treadmill in their heads – getting nowhere fast, preventing them from success – hours turn into days, weeks, months and years – AND NOTHING CHANGES. 3 years in – they’re still putting themselves out there and coming up short. 5 years in – they’re wondering if it’s time to let their artistic dream go and commit to a “real” job. 10 years in – they’re feeling bitter that all this hard work went into their singing and didn’t count for anything. So, I want to flip this question for
