We will be exploring:

  • Stylistic tricks in pop music phrasing

  • Studio tips for making the most of every take

  • The technical singing secrets that really make a studio vocal truly stand out.

All captured in smooth electronic sounds, deep beats and rich vocal soundscapes.

The album is a digital release and is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and all good digital music stores.  Look out for gigs too!
