Kaylene and I sang in the car on the way to drop her off, and she told me I was scared of my voice and was closing my throat when I sang. "Stop it!" she demanded. I tried but I just couldn't with her in the car..... Then we got to her house, she went in and got the "Flaw" CD, then sang to it. DAAAAAAAAAAAAAYUM this girl can sing! I told her if I heard her voice on a CD I'd buy it. She has the style that I love; throaty, rich, gritty, powerful. She reminded me of (but didn't sound like) Adrienne Liesching or Jennifer Knapp's voice.
And because she's an excellent vocalist, I got depressed. That ALWAYS happens to me. But then on the ride home, I cranked up the radio and did as she said, singing with my gut, and I was impressed with myself. I actually sounded a good deal like her or Adrienne myself, which was a comfort to me. Kaylene said that in vocal styles, I was choral and she was blues, but I think that's cause choral is the only training I've had. And I hate singing all smooth and soft. So I'm gonna get vocal lessons ASAP, 'cause I want the confidence to sing like ME!!!!!!
