How can we open the conversation, shine the light and inspire new paths of thought with only our voice?
As artists our main goal is to tell/sing/share stories and ideas that promote healing through authentic expression on a platform that reaches the world. But, how do we capitalize on communicating our thoughts and feelings on deep topics? Here’s our top 3 tips for expressing yourself in your singing.
1. Express Your Real Emotions
Real emotion when singing is a true experience that people will remember forever because it holds so much power.
Trust yourself enough to not skip over the deeper part of a lyric. You’ll know once you’ve hit the sweet spot because it won’t feel like you’re trying to perform or show or prove something…instead there will be a confident feeling of expressing a truth.
2. Speak (Or Sing) the Truth
It’s our job to open the conversation, to shine the light and inspire new paths of thought. To leave an impact you must wholeheartedly embrace the truth. We feel it, so we can heal it and move forward. You’re never alone in how you feel, but as the artist you may be the first one to speak up about it.
It is our job as artists to honestly express what is going within us and in the world. Be empowered by this purpose and let it inspire deeper storytelling.

3. Dig Deeper
Think about the specificity of the emotions you are writing about and allow yourself to daydream into the moment. Naturally your mind will dive deeper into those thoughts and feelings. Transform your surface layer of emotions into a deeper feeling of “love” or “betrayal” or “joy”.
