Dean Jenkins and Lee – Take care with your guitar tuning. Also as a duo perform together as there couldn’t have been any less chemistry! There appeared to be no enthusiasm in the performance so work on that to improve. 

Hannah Caswell – Song choice didn’t show us anything of you as an individual, when doing a cover try and make it your own. Click here for some tips on performing a creative cover. 

Hayley Ann James – Belting vocal and super control.

Katrin McCall – Good vocal control but when doing a cover try and make it your own, click here to see how to make the song your own. 

Chelsea Watts – Powerful vocal with good projection.

Jamie Miller – Always remember to check the tuning of your guitar before coming into the room. But glad you adjusted in good time.

Nola King – Good performance but vocally need to look to even improve your projection which a good vocal coach will be able to assist you to be even better. Song needs to have more of a hook to really engage. Click here to see the benefits of singing lessons.

Rebecca Reed – A powerful raspy vocal, be really exciting if could take a cover and add your own adlibs and licks to give us a bit more of your individually. Click here to read more on doing a creative cover.

Dan Edmunds – Better dynamics would really assist you to drive the song and chorus and hook lines in particular. Click here to see how to sing with emotion.

Matt and Alex Taylor – Lovely start and build up, but built to what needed to be a really catchy hook and lyrically the hook wasn’t strong enough, click here for some pointers on writing your own songs. 

Emily Wyatt – Nice song, bit Jessie J like; bring the performance to convey the attitude in the song. Click here to see how to perform visually.

Short and Sweet – Visually looked a little awkward as an act. Lack of synergy both with image and engagement. 

Bristol music auditions – feedback continued

Sam Warren – Super projection and use of dynamics in the performance. Expression and engagement could improve to convey the emotion even more. Click here to see how to perform visually.

Samantha Harper – Projection, tone and tuning all need a little work. A good vocal coach will help you to improve in these areas, click here to see the benefits of singing lessons. 

Dan White – Nice falsetto. Lovely tone and projection to your vocal. Just watch your breathing so you maintain consistency. 

Tom Reilly – Liked that you hung on the notes right until the end. When doing a cover it’s important to make it different and original. Click here to read more on doing a creative cover.

Louisa Baker – You have a good vocal, look to pick a less popular song choice for a number of reasons. Click here for the importance of song choice.

Sazzey – Song is very personal which is great but make it too specific and it may be difficult for people to relate to it. Rapping is great and better than the singing. Look to work with a vocal coach to be even better with the singing, click here to see how singing lessons can help your performance.

Natalie Jones – Decent song but think more dynamics even more than currently doing to drive the chorus through. Song would have also benefited from more chord change. Click here for some pointers on writing your own songs.

Jo McNab – What a great song, really catchy, great lyrics and phrasing.

Harrisen – Long intro which with a large audience you’d need to consider as you need to grab their attention from the off. Good vocal and liked that you made the song your own. 

Bren Haze – Talented guitar player. Remember to engage with the audience, you didn’t look up enough to engage. Click here to see how to perform visually.
