“About 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach: A Collection Of Helpful Tips & Articles fro Singers:
101 LETTERS FROM A VOCAL COACH
The world’s most helpful tips and articles for singers, in a book!
If anything, working as a vocal coach over the years has given me a far deeper understanding of the human voice. Whenever I’m dealing with voice issues that my students are going through and trying to solve their problems—as everybody is different—I almost always pick up yet another solution to seemingly insurmountable difficulties and challenges singing throws at you: “101 Letters from a Vocal Coach” is intended to serve as a resource you can return to again and again, should you run into any difficulties with your singing. Contained herein is a fountain of articles and knowledge that you can draw inspiration and guidance from all year round.
From Newspaper Column to Book
I wanted to write a book because I felt the need to document what was happening in my voice studio on a daily basis. There was a wealth of amazing real-life content emanating from my studio that I was completely certain would be of great help to singers. I figured, if only I got all of these incredible stories to print, they would be of help to thousands of people.
Obviously, I blogged regularly, but it wasn’t nearly enough to generate content for a book. And so I thought, if ever I were to get this book project off the ground, quintessentially, a newspaper column would compel me to write. The pressure to deliver articles for a weekly column meant keeping up with submission deadlines, and so that alone, I reasoned, would spur me on.
Audio & Video Files
The purpose of these memoirs, therefore, is to give readers an insider’s view and knowledge-base into the study of voice through the journey of others, with helpful tips and articles for singers being the intrinsic value and thrust of this publication.
And so as it did in the newspaper column, this book offers links to audio and video content documented inside my voice studio. In essence, you get a three dimensional view of the workings of a voice studio; its pupils; and case studies that backup the steps taken to solve issues relating to voice training: steps that also serve as an eye-opener for anyone that wants to study voice in a more informal manner, oftentimes on a shoe-string-budget from the comfort of their own home.
Acoustic EP – Twisted
I needed something relevant to tie-in with the book release, and I felt an acoustic EP would be the perfect fit. Twisted is a cross-genre pop-folk EP with an eclectic mix of my acoustic recordings from 2010 to 2017, details of which you’ll find in my press release titled “ASCAP Songwriter Releases Twisted Acoustic EP on Africori.”

His follow-up 2012 disco single “Color Me Beautiful” was selected via Song Submit to be considered directly by #1 Hit Songwriter and A&R scout Mick Walsh, who has worked with Simon Cowell, Paul McCartney, Boy George, Florence And The Machine, and Dizzee Rascal; and introduced him as a promising international songwriter for the US market, to come out of Africa.
