You're a classically trained singer right?

I wish I could luck out and be involved in a band or artist like Tool: a band who is incredibly creative and unique, yet still manages to achieve fame and money while continuing to have a loyal following and respect from other bands for their originality.



and Lox, that's a great point. one could always make a lot of money at that given project and always start up some cool experimental stuff on the side. if, of course, you get that big break.

I would take it, but right now my music is taking a turn further away from mainstream (after this album). I want to do a minimalist record, which is not exactly a genre on the rise.

I was planning on recording an ambient/drone cd myself. Seems people like the ambient stuff I do and I think it's fun to record.

Well... you're a good singer. That means you've got one up on a lot of people. Now you've just got to get on American Idol and be like Kelly Clarkson.

you could always break down the walls of genres.


A classically-trained singer in something like a post-rock band would be extremely original



yeah, Lox, I like ambient stuff. I try to incorporate some of it in when I can to mix up some songs a bit.

ha. i don't think you've ever heard me, so i could suck and have just wasted money on years of vocal training!

i would never do american idol, and i could never be like kelly clarkson.

besides, after i've made fun of all the people who can't write their own music and such--neither can i!

Doesn't Sigur Ros have an album with a female singer? I don't really listen to them, but I remember someone telling me we were listening to Sigur Ros and it sounded like a female was doing ambient type singing.

I should get a Sigur Ros cd.

What's wrong with American Idol? I've considered auditioning. And why can't you be like Kelly?

if you were to just be a vocalist, just worry about the lyrics. get some creative and crafty musicians to conceive something interesting and unique, and then mix the two together.

and I'm sure you have a good voice. classical vocal lessons aren't just any normal vocal lessons.



And yea, Sigur Ros did do an album with female singing. they actually have some on many albums, but I noticed the most on their album Ágætis Byrjun.
Their music is basically post-rock and ambient fused together. It's very melodic, and they sing mostly in Icelandic.

eh, i'm sure my lyrics would be lame... but hey, most songs on the radio have really lame lyrics, too... however, for now, i guess i'll just stick with college choir and getting an education. maybe. and singing at the occasional wedding or funeral or church.

my voice isn't that versatile--unfortunately, i sound best on, say, broadway, sacred, ballads, etc.... i suppose if i decided to do something else, i could try to train myself. hmm.

I do not think you would require training. See if you can make your voice fit with other styles of music. Sounding different is not the same as sounding bad.

my brother (though he probably doesn't give me an entirely un-biased, honest opinion) always tells me i sound opera-esque no matter what i'm singing.

however, i think he just likes to be mean to some degree.

well then you must have a good voice to be able to do something like that, and solo for that matter.

i'm from a small town, so i don't have many great opportunities.

I'm so sorry to hear that...

I know I just met you but if you ever need someone to talk to you can always talk to me Smile


I can sympathize with the small town with no opportunities as well. There's nothing here but trees.

Just record yourself on your computer shea. It wouldn't be good quality but it would get across how you sound.

oh, thanks. it's hell... my mom and i were closer than most mothers and daughters.... i guess that's why i thought it was so cool you stuck with the catholic thing for a while for your mom.

i appreciate that... i have my good days and my bad days... (that vary by hour)...

yeah... my highschool didn't even have a regular choir (just a showchoir which is not my thing)... when i came home after a semester in my college choir, my vocal coach said she could tell a big improvement just from a REAL choir experience.
my biggest opportunity: an audition with the MS all-state honor choir.. and that's not very impressive since any school can send people.

in highschool, i considered applying to a performing arts school, but i never did try. sorry you didn't get in...

well, i'm from MS, so... yeah. my mom didn't want me to go out-of-state. i'm glad i didn't, now. eventually i'll have to find a new school for grad school.
