Vivian Green's A Love Story album is one of my favorites of all time. I grew up listening to here constantly, and she definitely influenced my sound as a vocalist. Lately, I revisited her music and studied her live performances, and am just learning from her even more. She has a strong higher register and somewhat light voice, like me. As a vocal coach and an artist, I think it's so beneficial to find singers that have similar ranges and tones as me. I work to master song after song. I love that she has stayed true to her sound throughout her career. Her music is influencing me all over again.
It was so amazing to watch such musical geniuses create music! #RobertGlasper #LalahHathaway #EsperanzaSpalding
Here's a vid of me performing my original song at the Music N Vibez event at DS17 Lounge in Atlanta! This song is titled "Lost Memories," and the idea was sparked at an awesome songwriting workshop I went to several months ago!
I've been studying Ledisi for the past couple of weeks! It's refreshing hearing her story and hearing about her musical influences. I definitely hear all the styles and tones in her music.
Ledisi is an amazing singer! I'm so glad I came across her jazzy voice several years ago, and have kept up with her music to this date! She recently released a new single titled "High" and I absolutely love it! She's found the perfect mesh of Jazz, Soul, and R&B.
My life is a song still being written...watch my lyrics evolve.
