I am a 20 year old male, and I sound just like Till Lindemann (because of it people call me Till). A band in my country asked me to do some covers of Rammstein. I sing some of the Rammstein’s songs, but they didn’t want to hire me as their singer because they say my voice sounds great in the studio but in live performance it fails. When I speak in a quiet room my voice is powerful but when I’m in a loud place (like a discoteque or cafe or the street)my voice fails and people can’t hear what am I saying. I’ve been to many vocal therapists but they couldn’t help; they say it’s gonna come naturally and I spent all my savings for those therapies so I decided to ask you. Can you give me some advice as to how to form my voice, please, if you can post the answer to this website.
Whatever it is you do when recording and when you are successful is what you need to do all the time. If you don’t change what you are doing when your voice works, the sound will be consistent. Try to notice what you are doing differently in the two circumstances. For example, when you are competing with noise do you push more air against the voice in an attempt to increase the volume? This would tire the instrument, result in poor phonation and diminish the resonance. Force actually makes the voice dull and reduces its acoustic effectiveness. Don’t work to hear yourself — work to feel great and let others do the listening. Pay close attention and use all of your senses to track your singing when it works. Notice how it feels and memorize it so that you can do it no matter where you are. And rather than going to a speech therapist, try taking some singing lessons with a good voice coach!
