Up your vocal presence and performance skills, study Eddie Vedder
When it comes to creating a great vocal performance, it’s easy to put too much burden and responsibility on the singing! Engaging vocals are a wonderful mixture of way more than just good notes and the occasional growl or scream.
Think about the speech level, conversational nuggets. Think about subtle, yet fitting effects (reverb, delay, compression, eq).
What we love about our favorite vocal performances is actually a love for the whole package. Singing, the character communicated, and the way it was recorded and produced.
Even early in his career, Eddie Vedder intuitively understood the conversational and dynamic approach to a great vocal performance, and the guys working with him to capture his vocals understood the role that creative production ideas have in delivering a memorable experience for the listener!
Join me as I unpack all this goodness using the isolated vocal tracks for Pearl Jam’s Even Flow! There’s a lot to learn here and a lot you just can’t fully appreciate until you’ve heard the vocal recordings by themselves!
