I think MJ could be another example. His extraordinary singing came from experimenting with his rather soft speaking voice. If adding an accent can do THAT, I see no problem with it

I don't understand the whole argument that someone's voice is "not unique". Because, no one's voice is the exact same. Sure, style can overlap. But a lot of people can't do anything about their accents. Besides, it has a lot to do with genre and style. Look up people's genre/style before you call them a typical indie girl lol

You'd ask a mix engineer (what you call a sound technician) for their decisions, based on the input, rather than a vocal coach in most of these cases... Vocal belting is a technique, Air is commonly referred to as a high frequency... What I think they're referring to as 'indie' is mainly the edge of 'monotone' nasality, which is quite prominent at the beginning... then we go onto the different techniques typically employed exclusively for vocal tracking and vocal phrasing... Jessie J compresses and gates her vocal chambers quite uniquely... #everybodysingsuniquely... let me just sing with every breath in, and vocally belt out the larynx from it's position, and schedule an appointment for a tonsillectomy...

Its all a bit smoke and mirrors to effect a style. Is it annoying to "trained" singers' singers that get less attention than the indie singers, yes, but that doesnt make it any less valuable or attractive to listeners who like the indie or particular vowel choice etc. People just need to make everything less of a value judgment just based on technique or popularity

Just be honest and specific about what each singer does well. I cant stand Halsey, mainly because her lyrics are for sad girls haha, but also because her voice sounds weak to me. I wish she sang stronger and more supported more often. But if you ask that of someone like Rod Stewart, itd be silly, since thats obviously his huge stylistic weapon in his arsenal

Tristan, I like how you are not biased when reviewing different singers and their voice styles. However, I am very curious about the kind of vocal technique you have your students apply to their voice. I would also like to know your opinion on these techniques and discuss whether or not these trends are healthy for these artists. I take vocal lessons and I’ve been trained on the more classical/ musical theatre side and I am extremely curious on your opinions and ideas on how vocal technique should be taught and how your technique helps make your students grow to help your students become more versatile. Thank you :)

I really enjoyed this video! It makes me think of some of the other vocal coaches on Youtube and how some get notably frustrated when reviewing videos and argue that some pronunciations or accents don't aid singers or make their performance harder than it needs to be. Tara Simon, who also does videos like these, is always commenting on how people pronounce lyrics in songs, as if there is a right and a wrong way. Not sure if there is, but I'd be interested to know your take on it.

I have to disagree with you here Tristan. I think that although a lot of the singers individual voices are vastly different in tone and timbre, I definitely hear a great similarity in the way they shape their vowels to create a certain style. I wouldn’t call a lot of these singers unique either.

Yes they are different accents and that has been established. That they are affected as fuck is the problem. When little white girls open their mouths and these world weary, crackling sounds & corny vowel sounds come out; it's tiresome & ridiculous. Employing "some sort of vowel modification" IS necessary so that people don't sound overly enunciated and boring, but let's get real. there are about 4 different affected styles that are being used over & over & over & over in the last bunch of years and it's tiresome. What's more is it's sad because most of these people probably have great, strong voices w/ their own natural nuances, but they'll never ever know because their so busy focusing on being "recognized" "known" & "liked."

Yes it's easy to do and that's why it's done. The whole point of a modern pop song is to get people to put up covers of their songs quickly which acts as a form of advertisement. Two of the biggest sellers now, Adele and Taylor Swift, are not near the quality level of the high selling major artists such as Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. Even Beyonce is lowering the vocal bar to make it easier to cover he music. Fame has nothing to do with talent anymore. Labels spend 90% of their publicity money on 10% of their artists. When the label cuts the publicity money, the act no longer becomes famous.

I’m going to have to disagree with you when you said that singers don’t have to project into microphones. Sound technicians can only do so much, you can only turn up the gain of a microphone so far before you get feedback so when a singer is not projecting they won’t be heard.

Also vocals are purposefully limited in frequencies along with the rest of the instruments. Any frequencies outside the allotted frequencies get erased. Probably one of the reasons why the guitar has went away is that is clashes with the vocal frequency from this vocal style. I know Lady Gaga and Rihanna get drowned out when they are singing with rock bands such as Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones.

+orlock20 That makes more sense but if you're basing it strictly on album sales though Taylor makes most of her money touring. So it's not "wealth generated" unless you added "by album sales", which is what confused me. Also for further analysis, it's not just the song's content (though that plays a huge role), both Adele and Taylor put consumers in a position where they have to buy the product as a full album as opposed to just listening to it on streaming services, which is a very smart business plan in modern times.

That's the point of why there are no super pop singers right now. The top two singers, in terms of wealth generated, are Taylor Swift and Adele. Their songs are purposefully made easy so they can be quickly covered which causes songs to go viral. The hardest recent song to sing was Rap God and that was due to the speed. Even then, people were cranking out covers in a day of the release.

I love breathiness in pop vocals (I’m fascinated the more I find it in Disney songs, especially from prince characters!) but I think what characterizes this “indie-girl” sound is the combination of the breathiness, the accent, AND what seems to be a constant hovering on the passaggio AKA the “break.” An example of the “break” sound is how Adele really utilizes the vocal quality of her break in When We Were Young towards the end of the chorus. For female indie singers, it seems like s breathy modal voice carries much of the verses while entering the break and using bits of headvoice make up main melodies. I don’t think it lacks control, in fact I think it takes a unique type of precision to control your registers in that style, but the breathiness mixed with the breaking and the accent make the style almost uncomfortably ethereal for me hahaha
