Reviews of Audrey McDonald

    Audrey worked to the brief and produced fantastic vocals that are note perfect! I would be happy to work with her on any future projects and can highly recommend her talents and vocal range.

  • Default-avatar5 months agoby

    I have known Audrey for a few months from our work together on the 'Tis Pity She's a Whore: A Pop Opera album that we worked on together. I know Audrey to be an incredibly versatile performer, being able to sing multiple characters in a wide range of notes. She is reliable, dependable, and communicative--a professional in every sense of the word.

Interview with Audrey McDonald

If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
uh...water, canned food, my phone, tent, and shoes. ...idk if I'm answering this right. I don't really have to pack my voice. It's kinda inside me haha!
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I got my first singing lessons when I was in grade school. I competed in National Youth Vocal Competitions by the age of twelve and traveled internationally singing at the age eighteen. I moved to Los Angeles and studied with Michael Jackson's vocal coach Dorian Holley and then started performing full time at the age of twenty. I founded Forte Vocal Academy nine years ago. So I guess you could say I've been singing my whole life!
What's your strongest skill?
My flexibility! I've been teaching private singing lessons for over nine years with students of all ages and style preferences. Some will come in wanting to learn a country song and the the next student who walks in wants to learn an Adele song. I have to adapt my style to teach that style of song to the student. After years of this I have adapted the ability to change my vocal sound to several different styles. From breathy airy emotional sounds to Christina Aguilera growl to a country twang, I've learned it all!
What's your typical work process?
My process is probably pretty uncommon. I like to download the vocal guide it my phone and listen to it in the car for a couple days while I'm driving. I feel like that way when I step into the studio to record I feel like I'm already in sync with the song and I can relax into the recording process. I personally think this leads to a much more sincere and emotionally in tune sounding recording.
Tell us about your studio setup.
All recordings are done in our recording studio at Forte Vocal Academy. We use a Tascam TM-80 microphone, mixer, pop filter, stabilizer and of course sound dampeners.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
My idols are clearly Bonnie Raitt (country), Aretha Franklin (soul), Linda Eder ( broadway). What a mix, I know right?!
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Most commonly my voice is chosen for country pop songs or Disney child friendly songs, however I've gone as far opposite as recording a death metal song before. It was a blast!!
