This morning I recorded a voice over for a video we are producing with our friends at rtraction to promote the site and give customers an overview of what Voices.com is and how our service works.
Before hitting record, I made sure that I didn't do one thing in particular...
Want to know what it was?
Something I never do before recording a voice over or singing is have caffeine. For those of you who know me well, you can only imagine what it's been like to not have had my tea until well after lunch.
I made sure that I didn't drink tea beforehand so that my voice would be ready and pliable.
Tea has properties that can dry out your voice if it is caffeinated or too hot. Also, I'm a huge fan of milk and sugar in my tea, which can also impede your sound.
Dairy = Phlegm for most people
Looking forward to hearing from you!
