The Musical Art of Naomi Psalm

Randy's Blog

Naomi Psalm can best be described, by this reviewer, as a very creative music artist in the realm of indie pop that really brings the word “artist” back into play again.  After all, it is supposed to be art isn’t it?  With a music industry so far away from musical art and relying on overdone formulaic sound patterns instead of actual musical painting, Naomi brings a much needed refreshing of sound to the music scene.

I’m sure her own music scene in Boise, Idaho is the richer for having her there.  She writes, she sings, she plays guitar and ukulele. Oh, and she can play bass as well. 1618538_10153846410705608_2003472706_nPsalm has a knack for knowing what to do with her voice in a given song.  Her vocals make good use of her dynamics and she sings with a passion that you can feel in the emotions of what she is singing about.

Recording Vocals

This isn’t about mixing vocals, it is about recording them. They are two very different things. I will address mixing and EQ-ing some other time. But right now I will address some very basic but important and sometimes overlooked things about getting a good vocal track. A famous saying in my studio is “do it again.”

Having a background in musical theater and formal training in singing, I act as the vocal coach for my own band and for myself, though I am always learning something new. The learning never ends.

When recording your vocals take your time.  Do it right. Listen carefully. Did you got the right feel? Did you capture the right mood? Don’t be afraid to create the right atmosphere during recording. If your studio is set up with lights that make it feel like someone’s office cubicle, you may well get a sound…

An Outlaw's Journal

I’ve been quiet lately.  Although I have a lot I want to say, I just can’t seem to find the right words yet.  I’ve been through so many life changing events in the past year, it’s hard to know where to start.  Business is good, life is getting better.  The sunshine is starting to peer through the storm clouds.  I’m starting to feel alive again.  I wish I could tell yall more details, but it’s not the time or place.  What I can tell you is I feel more myself, and more in touch with my feelings, needs, wants and dreams more than I ever have.

Have you ever been so caught up in a TV show, that even though the characters upset you, you’re tired with it, and it’s not satisfying anymore, you just keep watching it anyway?  Habitually, we just do what we have been doing.  Even if…

Moshpits And Movies

diamanteI decided to give all of you out there on the web a second music video of the week because this is a good one and something released recently. After seeing n article with Diamante, I was left wondering to myself just who in the world is Diamante? All we know is that she is one hot blonde that is only 18 years old which is insane, but she is making music and a name for herself. She was featured in Revolver Magazine’s hottest chicks in Metal and she is touring with the likes of Flyleaf and even Whitesnake. She also has an EP out that you can get called Dirty Blonde EP that features our music video of the week in the track There’s A Party In My Pants (And You’re All Invited) which may raise a few eyebrows in a world dominated by men. She spoke to…
