Episode 52 – Vocal Process On Forward Placement | Vocal Registers | Tilt

Welcome to today's episode with Vocal Process’s Gillyane Kayes and Jeremy Fisher.

They are long-standing coaches in the worldwide community, authors of This Is A Voice, and the brains behind the App Store's successful vocal app, The 1 Minute Warm Up. Listen to the fun and informative podcast on the player above, but here’s a summary of what we covered that day.

Let’s get into stage performance (OOOOOOOH)


Welcome guys and gals! Today we bring you KJ Rose, singer and creator of The Rose Effect – Artist Development & Performance Coaching. She has fantastic energy so makes for a great listen if you get a chance, you invest in her investment for sure!

Episode 56 – Voice Science Works | How Much Science Do We Need To Know?


David Harris and Laurel Irene are the brains behind the amazing resource that Voice Science Works. They take contemporary research on the voice and translate it into directly applicable information so that you, the voice user, can immediately apply it in your practice. Their website is free, accessible, and friendly to all voice users who wish to deepen their understanding and empower their learning process! In our latest episode we explore the question of voice science; do you really need to know it to be a good singer or teacher?

Tune into the podcast audio by using the player below and enjoy.

600 Second Singing Ep.5 – Breathing For Singers 101


For this episode, we’re looking at some of the basics of breathing for singing. Y’know, the stuff that seems pointless initially but could help you to take internet-based information and actually make it work for you. I mean, let’s face it… vocal exercises from websites can be hit and miss, are we right???

600 Second Singing Ep.3 – Exercises To Prepare You For A Massive/Better Range


This podcast is not a quick fix for high notes.

It’s falsetto groundwork for future greatness.

The truth about quick fixes is that they only really work when there are parts of your voice that are present already. Vocal registers are one of them. So, high notes are not going to be easy if you haven’t really explored your falsetto at all, yet so many singers want to know how to skip this detail. Well, you can’t. At least not without some external and unhelpful muscle getting involved, which will burn you in the long run.

600 Second Singing Ep.2 – Exercises We Couldn’t Live Without For Reducing Vocal Tension


Singers have a million questions relating to this subject: reducing vocal tension, so here’s another episode I want to share with you from the 600 audio series. Enjoy!

600 Second Singing Ep.6 – Are Your Vocal Exercises Helping or Hurting Your Singing?


In a more light-hearted approach to learning to sing, today's episode is to help you figure out why your vocal exercises go dreamily, but the songs don’t seem to come so easily. Take a listen to the Podcast!

600 Second Singing Ep.4 – Tongue Tension Helpers (part 1 of 507)

Admittedly, these tongue strategies might be No’s 1 and 2 of 507 because there are many ways to stop that tongue from being a muscular annoyance in your singing. You don’t have to do them all mind! It’s more because the singing world is extremely creative! Plus, the root cause of tension is different from one singer to the next. Trying stuff allows you to figure out the cause for yourself and find the exercises that work best.

Collagen Crystal Eye Mask, Removes Dark Circles & Bags Under Eyes

Following on the heels of my article How to Empower the Body for Optimal Health with Cellular Nutrition, today, with this article, I want to share an under-eye therapy product that has worked for me. In fact, the product is shipped from Singapore, and they now have an updated version on the market.

If you are concerned about dark circles around your eyes, bags, and wrinkling skin, then you will be amazed how Collagen Crystal Eye Mask Gel Patches which come in a set of 60 pieces, are extremely useful. I’ve used this product intermittently for a number of years, and I can tell you this, with this product you get visible results really quickly. The more you use this amazing product, the more you’ll want to stay on it because it works! You’re going to be surprised to find just how effective Collagen Crystal Eye Mask Gel Patches are for you. So let’s take a closer look at the product’s efficacy.

Enriched with all sorts of extracts, including Seaweed Extract, Bona spirulina Extract, Pearl Extract, Codium fragile Extract, Pearl powder, Lavender flowers, American mint Extract, Freesia Extract, Rosemary leaves Extract, Chamomilla Recutita flower Extract, and Skullcap root Extract; it provides intensive hydration to your eyes and diminishes the signs of aging. It makes your eyes firmer, smoother, and regenerated. When you apply the eye mask it will become thinner and thinner with the excellent absorption of high-concentration essences by eye skin so that your skin can enjoy deep nourishing and intensive care.

Once opened, please store the entire container in the refrigerator.

Some people use eye gels, and creams. And I’ve used those too, but if I’m entirely honest, Collagen Crystal Eye Mask Gel Patches are by far more effective. And so be sure to place your order today, here.

Help Tam Ben Fight Lymphoma GoFundMe Appeal

We have a very talented Nigerian artist, Tam Ben, who needs your help. 

We’ve featured him on the Talent Showcase Africa Playlist and introduced him to the Djooky Music Awards where he did Africa proud by not only winning numerous awards and cash prizes but also landing a record deal with Djooky Records. 

As you may well be aware, the DMAs have been on hiatus since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine because 50% of Djooky is based in Ukraine. 

Tam Ben has been diagnosed with advanced nasopharyngeal malignancy and is currently being treated at the NSIA-LUTH Cancer Centre in Lagos, Nigeria. 

Essentially, he has stage 4 cancer and URGENTLY needs chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.

That being said, Talent Showcase Africa is not just an emerging talents music platform, it’s a community. And we strongly believe that when one of us is in dire need of help, it is our responsibility to bring their plight to the community for support. Needless to say, Tam Ben is very much a part of this very special community. 

Collin Mogagabe, our CEO at Nam Radio has put up a Help Tam Ben Fight Lymphoma GoFundMe appeal to help raise at least $4,000 for his treatment. 

Please donate if you can, and kindly share with the music fraternity and others to help bring this young man back to good health.

Here’s the link to the GoFundMe page:

With love and prayers,

The all-new JOETTMUSIC.COACH domain goes LIVE

Hello everyone, it sure has been a while since I last blogged here. Like I've said before, I'm still blogging (but not here), and I send out a weekly newsletter to over 6K emerging talents from across the African continent. So yes, I have deadlines to keep and a weekly radio show to curate and produce. But I do want to edge my way back to blogging here, albeit very gradually. 

And so, first off, I have registered a brand new domain: JOETTMUSIC.COACH

Sadly, I lost my JOETTMUSIC.COM domain simply because I forget to renew it! And I've been beating myself up over this, but I have to get over it and I think this new domain is a good place to start.

And so you can catch last week's 24th February 2023 Talent Showcase Africa Playlist radio show on Podcast here. To stream/download the delineated Talent Showcase Africa Radio Charts, click the widget below. Enjoy!
