Visceral Singing.....bring it on!!!

There are not a huge amount of singers that I love listening to. I have to admit, I fing a lot of singers nowadays bland and pre-packaged. But sometimes you still hear someone with that primal connection, that heart-centred voice which sends a shiver down your spine, that intensity which flies in the face of smooth perfection and takes real risks.

They are the voices I love to hear. Visceral, searing, dangerous.

Welcome world

Well, here we are merry people. I've decided to enter the blogosphere and all the ego-fuelled ravings and blatant self-promotion that it affords us.

So what can you expect here on my blog?

Well, I am going to give you low downs on what's going on for me in the world of freelance opera. Mention my personal adventures as I seek to further my career. I shall even cover various areas of philosophy, personal development and presentation from my perspective of coach, and I shall no doubt get a few people's backs up with controversial comments about what I observe around me.

So, bring it on, comment on the posts, express your agreement and your outrage.

Let's get this show on the road!!!!
