I am sooooo proud of my student Jordan Mattacchione! Check out his latest song co-written by Sahaj Ticotin:
🚨KILLAKOI LIVE 🚨
Just before the pandemic began we unveiled the KAGE in front of a packed house! It was an amazing night and we want to share it with you!
More live videos coming soon, this is RIPPLE!!!
This is what hard work does for the singer. So proud of my student, Cliff Stanton!
You’ve dreamed the dream of being onstage with thousands of adoring fans singing your lyrics back to you. You’ve dreamed of hearing your song on the radio. You’ve dreamed of music being more a career than a dream! Sadly, that’s where most dreamers stop. They live in the dream and rarely bother traveling the road of persistence and hard work that leads from dream to reality. It’s great to dream about being on stage, writing your song, and getting your music out to the masses. But, if all you do is put your own song on repeat in your head, or daydream about hitting the stage, never bothering to get it out of your creative mind because you’re paralyzed by the “ifs”, “whens”, “hows”, “whys”, and “whats”, that song, that performance will never turn from dream to reality.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Good morning singers!!
Who’s been working on what they learned at your lesson? I, personally have been doing the “Ultimate vocal stress release” found in Raise Your Voice every morning while in the shower. Hot water, steam, stretching, and vocalizing all at the same time! Who’d have thought (don’t slip and fall!! Ha). Along with spending some time working on the exercises Jaime gave me to work.
Monday was my first night off gigging in over 20 days but I went back at it last night. 3 hour show straight through with no break and still felt like I could keep going.
What have y’all been doing for your voice?
Jaime Vendera is a vocal coach, author of multiple books and products including, Raise Your Voice, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, Unleash Your Creative Mindset, Mind Over Music, the Extreme Scream Series, the Beyond the Voice video series, the Tuned XD vocal training app, and more.
He is also known for his glass-shattering voice, appearing on television shows in China, Japan, Europe, and in the US on Good Morning America, MythBusters, and Dr. Oz.
His unique method of vocal strength training focuses on vocal health and maintenance by focusing on developing the muscles that surround the vocal cords, which can expand vocal range, power, tone, and stamina.
Jaime’s approach is a combination of old-style opera, modern rock/pop techniques, and his own style as taught to him by Jim Gillette, Elizabeth Sabine, and Thomas Appel. This approach has proven effective for nearly 25 years to enhance vocal quality and maintain the singer’s voice on the stage and in the studio...By using a few simple techniques and exercises, results can be amazing, and through continuous application a singer can maintain the voice and prevent future vocal issues, avoiding voice loss.
Jaime’s voice and techniques have been examined by top ENTs, including Dr. Arrick Forrest of Ohio State University and Turkish ENT/surgeon, Dr. Ilter Denizolgu, creator of the DoctorVOX device and DVT therapy, a system designed to warm up the voice more effectively, reduce vocal inflammation, and reverse vocal nodules.
Working with Dr. Denizoglu, Jaime developed The DoctorVOX Vocal Strength Training kit, aka, The VOX, which is used by touring artists worldwide. They also co-wrote the book, Rebalance Your Voice, a guide for proper use The VOX.
Jaime’s clients include singers from bands such as I Prevail, Dream Theater, Starset, Skyharbor, Bollywood singers, actors, vocal coaches, and doctors.
He also runs Vendera Vocal Academy,
(an online school for singers) and Vendera Publishing, and has conducted vocal workshops in the US, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.
His passion is teaching, always striving to help the singer make that breakthrough they never dreamed possible. When you come in for a lesson, bring an audio recorder to retain what you learned, because Jaime says, “I always shove four lessons into one.”

I’m Jaime Vendera, and I’ll see you in your first lesson!
I started playing in clubs at the age of 16 with a band called Flint. Some of my best friends came out of that band- Billy Massie, Tim Odle, Donnie Eubank, Gordy McPhail, and Rick Tolliver, a group of established musicians who believed in a teenaged kid who just wanted to play his synthesizer and sing a few tunes.
I was a junior in highschool and by my senior year we were a house band at a venue called, Southern Fever where we played many weeks from 9:15pm-2:00am Wednesday through Friday. Back in the day, it was strictly five 45-minute sets.
It was tough on me, I was an A/B student and I had to get home, go to sleep, (it’s tough to go to sleep after a gig) and get up to shower and be on the bus by 7:00am.
I had no vocal training at that time and I always woke up with a sore throat after a gig. I had no concept of vocal technique or warming up. Sometimes I couldn’t even talk in the morning at school. Even worse, many gig nights my voice just couldn’t take all the belting I was doing in order to sing along to Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Bon Jovi. So, I skipped a lot of high parts depending on how my voice felt.
However, I found a workaround; I discovered falsetto.
Actually, I should rephrase to say that I “re-discovered falsetto” because I was already a huge Prince fan and knew all about falsetto.
But as I listened to bands like Britney Fox and King Diamond I began to notice the relationship. These singers were using a different tone than Motley Crue or Bon Jovi. They seemed to be wailing in the stratosphere and even adding massive amounts of grit to their voice without any issues.
Well, it just so happened that the song, Girlschool by Britney Fox became an MTV hit. The singer, Dean Dizzy Davidson sounded similar to one of my favorite singers, Tom Keifer of Cinderella.
I wanted to sound like Tom Keifer so bad, but he seemed way out of my ballpark. But, Girlschool seemed almost like a total muppet voice to me, something I could mimic because I could hear that Prince-like falsetto tone beneath all of Dean’s grit much easier than I heard it when Tom sang, Nobody’s Fool.
When the band suggested we try to add Girlschool I happily volunteered. Or maybe I suggested it... That’s way too many years ago to factually account for that memory, ha-ha.
So, we added Girlschool and it was a hit. Singing that song was also the beginning of developing my falsetto and even my grit! I felt like I’d finally figured out how to sing higher with less strain—- simply by using my falsetto.
I began using falsetto quite a bit, singing in bands with names like Pritty Wicked, Valhalla, and AMRA with other great friends like Matt Hoover, Keith Gilbert, Chuck Dailey, Christ Tackett...Go ahead and laugh at all the band names... it WAS the 80s:)
While my falsetto tone definitely wasn’t the same as my real voice, I noticed that the more I used falsetto, the more powerful it sounded.
So, I continued using it for years and even used falsetto to sing for another band called Chained Angel, which produced many fond memories and great friends, including Scott Stith (my songwriting partner to this day), Jeff Wright, David Noble, and Lonnie Winters.
From continuing to use falsetto as a staple for singing, I eventually realized that the gap between full voice and falsetto wasn't so huge..I soon learned to close that gap, and it simply happened by slowly learning how to bring my vocal cords closer together to narrow the glottis (the opening between the cords) as they vibrated to “enhance the tone” until they were close enough together to change that falsetto tone into my true, full voice.
This is why I use exercises like the Falsetto Slide
and Transcending Tone exercises- because falsetto work will strengthen the vocal muscles and lead to full voice production.
With that said, there IS a place for falsetto in singing. King Diamond, Justin Hawkins of The Darkness, Lenny Karvitz, Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind, and Fire, Jeff Buckley. John Mayer, Whitney Huston, and of course, Prince all used varying degrees of falsetto to color their songs.
In fact, I still love falsetto so much that I formed a band called Angel Fire East with one of my former students and co-vocal teachers, Ryan Wall. If you go to JaimeVendera.com/about, you can hear us singing together on a demo for a song we’re currently recording called Fallen. For Angel Fire East, my vocal inspirations are Amy Lee of Evanescence and Prince.
There are also a few songs on there from my Vendera & Stith sessions. Listen to those harmonies and you will hear a blend of full voice and falsetto, which was done intentionally to tonally color the background parts.
So check those three songs out and you’ll hear that falsetto definitely has its place in music:)
So, here’s the kicker. My latest program, Metal Falsetto, is NOT just for those of you who want to sound like King Diamond. It will work for ANY style.
In fact, the falsetto building regimen in Metal Falsetto is very unique and can help anyone develop their falsetto, whether it is breathy or clean or considered “low falsetto” or “high falsetto”.
What? You’ve never heard of low or high falsetto? Not to worry; you’ll understand these concepts once you've listened to the program.

Today we release the fifth product in the Extreme Scream/Rock&Metal line, Extreme Vocal Stamina. Vocal stamina is the ability to sing for long periods of time while maintaining superb vocal quality. In other words, to be able to start off great, and end the night (or session) even better - night after night after night, without your voice, becoming weak, or hoarse.
If you’ve ever felt vocally weak by the end of a short live set or a few takes into a recording session, lack of vocal stamina may be your problem. But, the good news is there’s a fix!
In this conversational and informative 1-on-1 vocal lesson, I break down the four steps to achieving Extreme Vocal Stamina, help get you on a daily routine to achieving your goals, and even dispel a few long-held voice myths! You'll learn how to condition your mind, body, AND voice to achieve vocal stamina in a way that's challenging yet fun.
But, vocal stamina isn’t just learned, it’s earned! As in all of my voice lessons, you'll be expected to put these techniques & teachings into practice every day to build up your stamina. This is what separates good singers from amazing singers...are you up for the challenge? Do you want to take your vocals to new heights? Then check out Extreme Vocal Stamina at http://bit.ly/2WMpW4o
