Hey,

here's a quick cover I did of a song called "Long Distance Call" by a french band called Phoenix. I don't think this is my best performance, but also not my worst, so it's a fairly honest and true representation of my singing.

I find that this song is just on my break so i find that the majority of notes are in a high chest/mix area for my voice. I find it quite hard to sing as i feel like I may be pulling up chest, unless this is my mix voice?

On the really high notes, I go to head voice, it sounds okay for this song, but does anyone have any tips to increase the strength and power of my head voice?

Anyone who can give me any advice please don't hesitate to! Thanks so much.

You did a good job! What you do have now, sounds good to my ear 95% of the time. I don't think the falsetto on the high G's takes away too much from this song, though I have not listened to the original yet. If anything, it may just be coming across a little too airy. Perhaps if you focus on decreasing your exhale rate and add compression, it'll be a non-airy connected note!

Have you ever done any vocal exercises involving narrowing your vowels as you go up? (a lot of them have a lot of that... if you do them right) I feel like the two things that could help you reach those top notes stronger would be increasing adduction of the folds (making sure they come together adequately) through certain exercises that focus on balancing adduction and compression. It sounds more like falsetto with air passing over the note than what I would consider a thin coordination (head voice, by some definitions).
