I teach some fabulous new artists and love to watch them grow. The incredible voice of Ella Henderson who flew into the charts at number 1 with her first single Ghost followed by her debut album Day Dreams; Becky Hill my young rock chick who hit the charts at number 1 with her mighty vocals on overdrive by Gecko.
Now and again an act comes along and knocks me out with a new project that’s totally fresh and exciting. Life of Dillon have done just this for me and I predict they are going smash it, with their fresh new sound wave. With their music they capture the essence of being free spirits and enjoying life to the full. Their lyrics and melodies are fresh, joyous, clever, carefree, fun and totally original. Life Of Dillon reminds me of spring bursting out at its best and blasting out its first rays of sunshine making me feel warm all over.
In one of their songs the boys offer up a bit of wisdom that sums up the band’s philosophy in one line:
If your dreams don’t scare you, they ain’t big enough.
It’s a killer lyric, I so wish I’d written it.
As soon as I met Stevie we got on like a house on fire! Kindred spirits. Everything I loved about writing, she shares the same passion for, and I knew from that moment she would be in my life forever. She’s done so much for me in terms of helping me find my voice, which I’m eternally grateful for. I’d go to the ends of the earth for this wonderful human being!
Stevie is an incredible vocal coach, and has been there for us since before we could afford to pay her any money. I’ll never forget that. I used to use you tube to find vocal exercises, which did help, but they cannot compare to the one on one time you get with a professional.
