Recording Technique

First Recordings – Lee

Eventually I recorded an original song: Ta-dah!

The more I tried to record, the more I realized how difficult it was. I didn’t know the first thing about recording, much less mixing. This was an example of me “winging it”. I knew enough to turn everything on, and how to use a little EQ and compression and reverb.

I never focused in on my singing technique until I had to listen to my own voice on repeat . I hated it! I felt like I couldn’t summon power without tension, couldn’t sing across a wide enough range, and most importantly, I couldn’t get my song’s message across because I was worried about all that.

Singing lessons over the last couple of years have helped me immensely. Getting enough sleep, eating right and avoiding alcohol are also good for my voice- surprise!
