Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

Hey guys! Need support :)

Hey guys, basically I'm from Sri Lanka and I would like to share a song my friend wrote! If you like it be sure to share it :)

CC-Remember Me

Just a show of some Lankan pride!

Re: Hey guys! Need support :)

Hey nice, your voice had some solid warmth to it. Haha, initially thought it was going to be some type of high pitched Sri Lankan accent but big surprise.

Great twang-grit scream at 2:54, wish it started @ 1:23 with something like that.

It's got a solid acoustic pop-sound without being pretentious or gaudy if that's what you were going for.

Only crit is that you could easily fit in some more falsetto, twang, drawl, or vowel mods so the style is less Josh Groban and more blues/rock. It has a vibe like a tame version of The Verb Pipe's The Freshman.

Are you a Pearl Jam, Nickelback, or Goo Goo Dolls fan?
