Using vocal fry is a way to lighten the mass, or stop the pushing in your singing. At TVS, one of the 8 specialized onsets ( how you start a note ) that we teach in the TVS Method is called the, "Pulse & Release Onset", or Vocal Fry Onset. It is also called the, "Light Mass Onset". The Pulse & Release Onset is used to help singers build the coordination for singing without pushing. It "governs" the weight or "mass" of your singing, helping singers to stop pushing.
