When we started our recording with Iggy Pop this morning we never thought it would end up with CC having to through a Coconut Pie in his face! He lost a bet to his listeners at BBC Radio in London and had to do it, but actually quite enjoyed it because, as he said: “This is good pie!”

 

VO Tip of the week!

Here is our VO Tip of the week!

Relax your tongue!

It seems odd but not only your body and lips get tense, your tongue too!A simple stretching exercise can relax your tongue, and also help relax the muscles at the back of your mouth.

Begin by sticking out your tongue as far as you can, stretching it towards your chin. Hold it for five seconds and then pull it towards your right cheek and then the left one. Afterwards do the same pointing your tongue towards your nose.

Another tongue stretch is to grasp your extended tongue gently with your fingers and pull it. Simple as that. Just take a deep breath and pull your tongue forwards as you slowly say AAAAHHH. It may feel like yawning and yawning also helps open your throat so it´s a win – win!

Monday VO Tip!

LogoOyeme

Welcome to December!!!

This is our first VO Tip of the month!

SOME THINGS TO AVOID

Dairy products such as milk and cheese can cause sinuses to congest. Stay away from theses products when you know you have a VO job.

Also, clearing your throat with a hard and raspy cough might hurt your vocal chords. If you need to do it, you should try progressing from a gentle hum into a slow cough and always be sure to vocalize and put some air across your vocal cords whenever you cough.

Avoid eating before a session, food can cause your mouth to salivate more even hours after eating.

Our last thing to avoid today is to not cover up throat pain. Doing so will not improve your performance and might damage your vocal cords. If you feel you cannot perform you should advise your agent or client so that alternative plans can be made.
