The Charismatic Voice with Elizabeth Zharoff

re Charismatic voice 8 1

Last week, we began the conversation with some life insights and vocal nerdery with Small Town Titans’ frontman Phil Freeman. This week, we’re going to continue the discussion with more detail on vocal technique. 

Phil reveals the foundation for a good, healthy voice and an excellent performance in the same way that you should breathe in. He also stresses the importance of embracing the depth of your voice and not getting easily swayed by other people’s opinions when it comes to your voice. Plus, he’s going to satisfy our ears with some pretty awesome vocal demonstrations that will blow us away.

Not only an epitome of vocal excellence, Phil is also an example of savvy businessmanship and a super dad!

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Passagio in opera vs. in choirs
  • What it means to “cry through the note”
  • How the body plays a huge role in your voice
  • Clarity and compression in doing his vocal fry
  • Tests for vocal swelling
  • The three pillars of vocal health
