Hey Friends, great to have you here!

As a fellow lover of music, I completely understand the challenges of maintaining a high standard of singing through long periods, especially through touring. It can be a total grind! But fear not, with some proper vocal health practices and a heaping dose of determination, you’ll be able to slay those live performances like the Rockstar you are!

Let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of vocal health. Your vocal cords are the lifeline of your music, and taking care of them is key. Here are some tips to keep those cords rockin’:

  1. Stay hydrated, friends! Drink lots of water to keep your vocal cords moist and ready to roll. Plus, it’ll make you pee like a racehorse and who doesn’t love that?
  2. Get some sleep, dude. Proper rest is essential for vocal health, so make sure you catch those zzz’s. Pro tip: if you’re feeling tired on tour, just blame it on the drummer. It’s always the drummer’s fault.
  3. Do some warm-ups and cool-downs! Before and after each performance, do some gentle exercises to get your voice in shape and prevent injury. Plus, it’ll give you a chance to do some sweet vocal runs and show off to your bandmates.
  4. Lay off the smokes and booze, my dude. Smoking and excessive drinking can damage your voice, so try to keep it to a minimum. Plus, you’ll want a clear head when performing. Get used to singing without leaning on these things.
  5. If you’re feeling ill, rest when you can and get some help. If you experience any vocal problems, seek medical help ASAP. Don’t tough it out. Trust me, your voice will thank you.

Now, let’s talk about determination. It’s easy to get burnt out on tour, but staying motivated is key. Here are some tips to keep that fire burning:

  1. Practice makes perfect, peeps. Even if you’re on tour, make time to practice regularly to keep your voice in top shape. Plus, it’ll give you an excuse to sing in the shower and annoy your bandmates.
  2. Stay focused! It’s easy to get distracted on tour, but staying present during each performance will help you maintain a high standard of singing. Pro tip: If you start to feel nervous, just picture the audience in their underwear. It works every time.
  3. Surround yourself with a supportive squad! Work with a vocal coach (Pick me. Pick me!) and build a network of friends and colleagues who have your back. Plus, it’s always good to have someone to blame if you mess up a note.
  4. Take care of yourself. Exercise, eat healthy, and manage stress as much as possible. But let’s be real, sometimes a good burger and beer is just what the doctor ordered.

In conclusion, staying on top of your vocal health and maintaining your motivation on tour is a balancing act. But with these tips, you’ll be ready to slay those live performances and show the world what you’re made of. Keep rockin’!
