Vocal technique, exercises, tips and relevant resources

Are you a beginner or advanced singer?

Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber are two of the most successful pop singers of recent years. They have different singing styles, but both use a mix of pop, R&B, and acoustic genres. Ed Sheeran is known for his unique vocal texture, specifically his raspy and breathy voice, while Justin Bieber has a more falsetto-based vocal style. Learning to sing like either of these superstars requires proper techniques and understanding of your voice.

To sing like Ed Sheeran, you need to focus on developing proper breath control, as well as learning how to use your vocal distortions. One key technique that Sheeran uses is the "vocal fry" or "vocal creak." This style involves lowering the pitch of your voice while using excess air, creating a creaky or frog-like sound. Sheeran is also known for his use of chest voice and diaphragmatic support. To learn how to control and utilize these aspects of your voice, check out Singing Carrots' breathing exercises, such as "Breath Support" and "Active and Passive Breathing." Additionally, Singing Carrots' article on "Vocal Distortion & Growling" can help you develop your vocal fry technique.

To sing like Justin Bieber, you need to focus on developing a clear and powerful head voice. Bieber often uses a falsetto style to hit high notes, and to achieve this type of singing, you need to practice "mixing" your head voice with your chest voice.

Additionally, practicing proper breathing techniques such as diaphragmatic breathing, will help you develop lung capacity and support for your high notes.
