It's been an action-packed few months since my last update and the coming few weeks and months provide little let up, too. Following my previous post, Voice of the Town went on to deliver 8 fantastic performances with Take That, Lulu & Rick Astley on their 7 Birmingham Arena shows in front of nightly crowds of 15,000 people. This then culminated in a show at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium to an amazing crowd of 30,000 plus. It was an incredible production (as you can see from the pics below) which provided amazing memories.
In terms of voice coaching, the past year has given me the absolute pleasure and privilege of working with a fantastic array of voice clients and students. From working with arguably the hottest talent to emerge from the North East (and to take the likes of Radio 1 etc by storm) in quite some time, to 1:1 sessions with one of the Dragons from BBC's Dragon's Den, to talented actors, West End Performers and fantastically motivated clients preparing for auditions, recording sessions, tours or just simply, to improve their voices, it's been a terrific last year.
Furthermore, I've continued to work closely with a great number of clients who are professional voice users from industries such as business, media and education. These are fields in which those working within them are tasked with using their voices a great deal, and often in important, public arenas and settings. So finding your ideal voice, vocal delivery or simply improving the projection, strength and/or stamina of your speaking voice can crucial in many cases.
And while a confirmed tour in China for this very month (March 2020) with Motown legends Martha Reeves & The Vandellas has ultimately been postponed due to the impact of the coronavirus in the region/across the globe, there's still plenty going on. Closer to home, I really look forward to working members of the British Army for one of their on-going music projects while I continue to work in further and higher educations by providing 1:1 sessions and workshops to the next generation of talented performers. And with a number of performances and shows in the gig calendar, you'll likely see me at a venue/festival in the very near future, here in the North East and beyond.
So if you're looking to improve your voice, whether that be for singing or public speaking/theatre, get in touch and I'll be delighted to discuss, and help you to achieve, your vocal goals.
