Do you ever wish you could sing? Well, my guest this week believes you already can!
Vocal coach, YouTuber and author Kimberley Smith is my very special guest on the podcast this week, and she’s here to convince you that you shouldn’t settle for the voice you’re born with.
She says many students come to her with the belief that their voice isn’t good enough, and she helps them to make amazing changes to how they sound, overcome their fears, discover their unique voice and unleash their full potential.
Kim has also recently published a book called The Moderately Tortured Artist, which she describes as a “permission slip” for musicians to put themselves out there and start making epic, whole hearted music, which I think is fantastically cool.
What I love about Kim is she feels the fear and does it anyway. Yes, she freaked out at her first “thumbs down” on YouTube. Yes, she can’t bear to look at her book’s Amazon review page. But she continues to push forward, takes the criticism in her stride and continues on her mission to change the world for the better.
I really wanted to hear Kim’s thoughts on putting yourself and your voice out there and opening yourself up to criticism (and being a YouTuber, Kim’s had her fair share of it). We also talk about vocal projection and how to do it if you want to speak with more confidence and authority.
