Morgan Rawbone – Vocally really good and diction really clear. When you’re singing a cover it’s important to try and make it as original as possible. Click here to read about performing a creative cover.

Young Wilson – Made the performance his own. Performing more often will help to improve your confidence and you will relax more into the performance. Click here to see how to get gigs.

Fraser Bonar – Try and commit more to the emotion of the song rather than diverting your focus. Click here to see how to sing with emotion.

Ellie Needham – It’s a very emotional song and you really need to let yourself go with the emotion and convey it visually; this you could have done better… Click here to see how to sing with emotion and click here tips on performing visually

Charlotte Morgan – Song choice probably didn’t tell us much about you as an artist because it was too similar to the original. Click here for the importance of song choice. A vocal coach can help you with projection to make you even better, click here to see how singing lessons can benefit you.

Pearl Williams – Ability is there but making use of dynamics will make it more interesting and varied a performance.

Jennifer White – You looked great. A cracking vocal and good expression. Now think originality and find yourself as an artist. 

Lerato Matlhare – Remember to warm up fully before singing, especially at an audition. Click here to read about warming up

Sinead Hollom – Good connection emotionally to the song and well conveyed.

Charles Finebone – Nice soul in your vocal, remember to think how you can make it as original as possible. Click here to read more on doing a creative cover.

Josh Heather – Great song choice. Good projection and delivery. Perhaps going forward mash it up with your own lyrics or song to make it completely original. 

Bristol music auditions – feedback continued

Lucy Glasson – Good vocal, but a very static performance, click here to see how to perform visually

Megan Weale – You have a good vocal, but better use of dynamics will not only make it more interesting and help and stop you needing to feel that you don’t have to force.  

Laura Sidney – What a vocal! This girl could be on stage at the West End! Being picky watch your facial expression and take care not have them come across too harsh. 

Faye Plunkett – Vocally good just watch your breathing so you can really drive through the chorus.

Lottie Amor – Nice control. The song choice is a very popular one, so going forward carefully consider this to make sure you show off your vocal and your original potential. Click here to see how song choice can help your performance

Charlotte Hawkins – Keep focused and committed to the performance as you faltered a little at the start. Always keep the flow going and to avoid bringing attention to yourself. 

Grace Martinson – Conveying the emotion doesn’t always have to be pain and anguish. Think light and positive emotions to add to the performance.

Ryan Hawkings – Great voice. A really cool and engaging performance! 

Tom Roynon-Blake – Be really careful not to lose people in the build-up of the loop pedal. Also make sure you play it in on perfectly on time. 

Jim Keir – You look good! Diction and message was really clear, good audition! 

Brett Aland – Good voice. Belting vocal just watch your breathing so you are more consistent.

Taylor Darby-Rowland – Good projection, look to work the dynamics of the song more to layer the depth of tones.
