So here’s an interesting topic…can a singer’s mood affect their vocal performance? It absolutely can! I have worked with singer’s before that were going through things that weighed heavy on them and they really couldn’t find the technique anymore. It’s like the singer had a wall constraining them from singing.
This is sad to see, but it also shows me how much mind power singing takes. Is singing more of a physical thing in your throat or does your brain drive the bus? It seems to me that singing is 85% mental and 15% physical. While this may seem extreme…think about how much better you sang when you weren’t afraid or nervous, when you weren’t angry or sad, or when you weren’t questioning if you were a good singer or not. Your mind plays a huge part in your performance. It’s important to be well rested, well meditated, spiritually prepared, and overall happy when you hit the studio!
