033: Hansi Kürsch: Real Life Bard – Part I

The Charismatic Voice with Elizabeth Zharoff

re Charismatic voice 8 1

It’s just magic when music and fantasy are combined. And magic is what Blind Guardian creates. Today, we’re joined by their lead singer, Hansi Kürsch, who along with his band members, takes inspiration from the great works of fantasy. 

Going strong for 40 years now, Blind Guardian has recently released their newest album, The God Machine. Not only is Hansi a testament to endurance, but he’s also the epitome of a powerful voice. He gives insights into how to build and maintain a four-decade career and how his understanding of vocal technique has evolved over the years. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • From playing bass to singing
  • Learning to become more efficient in singing through education
  • How Hansi’s understanding of breath support has shifted through the years
  • The different types of breathing
  • Using the spine to support your voice
  • Vibrato is one of the most difficult to train.
  • Holding big, high-belt notes
