the button Singing Affectation? (143* d) RE: Singing Affectation? 20 Mar 08

Thing is, we all sing with an accent -- whether it's our own, or someone else's. I thought I didn't have much of one, until I made my first radio show and listened to myself back. I was actually quite shocked.

I come from a bit of East Yorkshire where the accent is quite hard to place. I've even been accused of coming from Hartlepool for God's sake. Heh.

On a completely unrelated point, one of the things I notice about the recordings of "proper" folk singers (Harry Cox, Walter Pardon & Fred Jordan in particular) is that their singing voices are a lot different to their speaking voices, in that all three of the ones I mentioned have accents which are far less marked when they sing than when they speak.
