Livvi Franc
Singer/Songwriter, Livvi Franc joined the Voice Training and Artist Development (referred by Artist and Vocal Coach, “Lisa Howell”) and subsequently landed a record deal with JIVE and RCA. Livvi’s training was comprehensive and diverse, as she was encouraged and prepared to free her voice and focus on stage confidence, covering meditation & creative visualization, vocal techniques, music video outdoor simulation exercises, and vocal fitness. She embraced every step of training with enthusiasm and a good attitude, and is a songwriting force with many international credits to her name. Congratulations and blessed journey, Livvi.
Country Pop Singer/Songwriter, Malissa Alanna
Country Pop Singer/Songwriter, Malissa Alanna sought our coaching services, and was a joy to work with. Extremely driven and focused, Malissa attended sessions after school and on weekends after dance rehearsals. We focused on strengthening and freeing the vocals and on her then naturally blossoming gift of songwriting, while including practical exercises for stage confidence (music video simulation.) and subsequently referring her to perform at annual HoneyJam Barbados showcase, brainchild of renaissance woman, Ebonnie Rowe. HoneyJam Barbados acknowledged Malissa Alanna as “BEST NEW ARTIST” “MUSIC VIDEO OF THE YEAR” and “POP / ROCK/ ALTERNATIVE / COUNTRY ARTIST OF THE YEAR.” With a sincere love of country and pop music, and the songwriting artform, Malissa’s rise and shine is no surprise and a pioneer movein terms of redefining genre borders, as a country pop singer/songwriter emerging from a Caribbean island.
