Discovering Jo Estill's work has been in many ways an epiphany for me. After years and years of vocal judgement and strong aesthetic bias, this is music to my ears, confirming an instinct which has always been true. I want all my students and artists to have vocal choices and no aesthetic bias or judgement. We ALL have a voice.
"Singing is no more difficult than learning how to drive a car. Where you go with it – that is, what you choose to sing – is your decision. There is no single “best” voice quality. “Best” depends on what you like to hear. Some qualities require more work than others and they cannot be done without that physiological commitment. But even that “work” can be fun." - Jo Estill
