Hi friends, if you have some time here is a song I recently recorded and I set out to try and use both my chest and head voice in this one, as well as try to use a little vibrato at some points. Not really sure how it turned out so some feed back would be nice, thanks for listening.

If there was vibrato, it was subtle, which is actually a good thing.

I listened twice. The first time, the low notes at at the beginning sounded pitchy. Second, I didn't notice because I have surmised that you are singing to low. In the high parts, you have better focus, no doubt, from a better support of air. Two suggestions. Either allow more air flow in the low notes. Or, raise that section to a higher range and sing it at less volume. That is, sing the verses softly and the chorus loudly.

I notice you like to do a one note "trill" or "hump" 1 step above the note you end on. That is you hit say, an A, and slide up to B and back again. Unique and probably your preferred style. I wonder how it would sound if you slid up two or three steps. That is, an interval of I to III or I to IV. for example A to C or A to D and back again. Seeing as how this is a bluesy type of song, I would try the I to IV interval, A to D, and back, again.

You have good energy in your higher notes. And I like the songwriting. And totally love what sounds like a flanged guitar in the solo. High marks for use of timbres and the whole somber feeling of the song.
