Keep her away from 31 Flavors.

Get a new horn section.

It's a bit pitchy, but you did your thing, dawg.

Not bad to look at. Looking at other videos of  Stephanie McCourt she has a lot of range and sings well. I don't see a career being built out of covers though. Aoh and she needs to learn to pronounce Aretha. Areefa is a terrible pronunciation.

I turned the sound of after a few second but I still want a backstage pass if you know what I mean.

Try to avoid site preparation charges - hauling in-fill dirt, grading, clearing trees, blasting rock. These processes are expensive and add time to the building schedule right off the bat. Choose the best site you can afford and then pick a plan that fits that site or can be modified to better suit the site.

Don't overbuild for the neighborhood. A home that is better and bigger than any other in its area will not command a fair price at resale. Instead, the assessment will be colored by the lower-priced homes around it.

If you really want ceramic tile or hardwood flooring but feel you can't afford it right now, consider vinyl flooring. Vinyl makes a good underlayment, and the tile or wood can be installed right on top of it at a later date.

I realize she's doing it intentionally as a stylistic thing, but the wild changes in dynamics from a full fortissimo to pianissimo don't really translate well to a video recorded with a microphone at a distance.

Specifically, she can get the same stylistic effect by changing the intensity while not changing the  amplitude. Using a microphone would help, because when she goes on to full on scream, she can move or turn away from the mic, and when she goes to a whisper, she can move in close.  The actual loudness of her voice on the recording should be relatively the same throughout.

I'm sure she probably knows this trick, too, and uses it in studio recordings or when playing live, but by not doing it for the demo video, it sounds unprofessional.  If she insists on a video in an environment where she can't be holding a microphone, then overdub the soundtrack with one from a studio.

Like the horn from Game of Thrones used to torment Theon Greyjoy.

I don't remember that part... Granted. I haven't watched the third season of the TV show yet.

Gets the coveted "Smart" AND "Funny" double click.

Well done!

Without even listening, I offer this advice:  give up.   Playing music is a hobby, not a career.

Beat me to it.  There is no such thing as "launching a career in music".  No reason to give up playing or singing though.

Do all the kids think she's a righteous dude(ette)?

I like. I'm totally digging the retro look w/ the pencil skirt and fitted top. She's got quite the range on her
and she uses it effortlessly. Her voice has a unique quality to it, too, which is good since it won't fade
into the woodwork alongside all of the bland, tasteless, over-autotuned crap that passes for music
these days.

You'll note that bland, tasteless, over-autotuned crap outsells unique and talented by about 1,000,000,000 to one. That's not an accident. Humanity is retarded.

Have fun making music. Make a bit of extra cash, if you can. But get a farking day job.

She's got a nice voice, I'll check out her other stuff.

AWESOME! OMG, I love her voice. She has the look too. A true blues woman never ever goes out of style. Thanks so much, subby!  As long as she keeps it real like she is, I believe she will enjoy a solid, long-term career in music.
 
2014-02-09 10:52:33 AM  
She has talent, I hope she get some recognition. Or she could strap some plastic so tight to her ass that her nether regions look unusual and go the Miley route.

I've been checking out her other stuff. Now I need to check out her voice.

Actually, I'd recommend learning an instrument. Distinguishing yourself from all the American Idol wannabes can be tough. How many can claim to play guitar and sing, though?
 
2014-02-09 03:30:16 PM  
Ok,

She needs to learn to control her pitch. Its all over the place. No not in a bluesy kinda of way.

She is too old to be popular in the teen market. <sorry sounds mean but the music business is not nice>
and there are 20 dozen of her in small bars in each town.

That being said she is cute..

Good point, She needs to ditch Arnie Grape and learn how to play the guitar herself

Learn how to drive a cab or make pizza.At least when she's 40 picking up back up singing gigs she'll at least have wheels or food.
Snarky but true.

+1.000.000! You're one of the good ones.
