Lower Harmonies & Live Performances...

For the past couple of weeks we have worked on lower harmonies, which adds a lovely depth and weight to a song. Singing the lower harmonies on both of these songs is extremely grounding and it opens up the voice in wonderful ways. Watching these live performances with performers harmonizing so naturally is a great way to get a "feel" for creating a blend and a group sound.
