Vocal Cover – Black (Pearl Jam)

I’m not a huge Pearl Jam fan… I mean, I like their music, but I think I sing a lot of their songs because the vocal register Eddie Vedder sings in is comfortable to me.

It’s always fun to watch myself afterward and see the weird facial expressions I make when I sing. Ā I tried to improvise at the end and couldn’t find the timing… oh well. šŸ˜›

Vocals were recorded with my Rode NT1a mic.

Vocal Cover – Jeremy (Pearl Jam)

I recorded theseĀ vocals to a karaoke backing track in 2010. Ā I remember that I had a cold at the time and I’d been coughing a lot, so that helped me get the raspy sound in my voice.

When I listen to this now, I think aboutĀ all of those years in radio and doing voice acting, and how they’veĀ conditioned me to try and enunciate my words clearly… whichĀ –Ā if you’ve ever heard Eddie Vedder singĀ – you’d agreeĀ is the opposite of how I shouldĀ haveĀ soundedĀ in this song. Ā šŸ˜›

Vocals recorded with my Shure SM-58 mic.
