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.

Here’s to a more powerful falsetto and more power full voice!

Okay lead screamers. Check out my latest product. We've been working on these for quite some time and they're almost ready to release:
Get the special bundle price now before it disappears!
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

So, without further ado, welcome to the latest Extreme Scream MP3 lesson, Rock & Metal Vibrato, where you’ll learn how to add powerfully fluctuating, elongated notes to your songs for dramatic flair & powerful effect--just like legendary metal singers like Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Axl Rose (Guns & Roses), Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Geoff Tate (Queensryche), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), and a slew of other metal masters.
In this exciting new lesson, I’m going to teach you a combination of metal vibrato techniques, including four types of vibrato- pitch, jaw, larynx, and stomach vibrato.
Range and power, although super important, will only get you so far. If you want to really stand out from other singers, you MUST master vibrato - and in this lesson, I will show you how to master it!
Pssssst- While the focus is rock & metal, this lesson works for ALL music styles, from pop to country to R&B....but as with all Extreme Scream lessons, we’re going to set your vibrato exercises to kicking’ rock & metal backing tracks to make learning vibrato fun and easy. This isn’t your typical rock vocal lesson. Not even close!

FINALLY, my latest book, Rebalance Your Voice has been sent off to my printing company.

This 100-page book also explains how to use the VenderaVOX Trainer kit and covers my new "Vocal Weightlifting" method for building amazing vocal strength.
We are only shipping out 50 kits and only to singers in the US for our initial launch...and over a dozen have already been pre-ordered. This first batch is $179.00 with free shipping and once the product has sold 50 units, we will open to worldwide distribution at $189.00 plus shipping.
The VenderaVOX Trainer is THE ultimate toolkit for warming up and rebalancing your voice in record time. It is what I have been using to regain my voice after my glass shattering accident in Tokyo, Japan, which lead to vocal nerve damage (a subject I cover in the book).
Without the VenderaVOX Trainer, I would not have been able to sing FALLEN, my new single by my band, Angel Fire East. What? Haven't heard it? Check out the Angel Fire East interview in Episode #65 at SingBetterFast.com. The song is at the very end of the podcast.
The VenderaVOX Trainer Kit will include:
