Vocal technique, exercises, tips and relevant resources

Are you a beginner or advanced singer?

If you want to learn how to sing like Little Fish's singer, Juju Sophie, you are in for a wild ride. Her unique voice is a mix of fierce and raw, powerful belting and melodic singing, roaring screams, and resonating whispers. It is a sound that you can hardly forget, and that requires a lot of skill and confidence to pull off. Here is how to start.

As a first step, you should analyze your voice and understand your vocal range. The vocal range test will show if you can handle Little Fish's highs and lows. Soph's range is wide, spanning from piercing high belts to growling lows, and it's not for the faint of heart.

To develop the belting and screaming techniques, you need to master breath support, diaphragm control, and mixed voice. Exercises on breath support, voice registers, and mixed voice will be your best tools.

Sophie's style also requires great articulation, which you can practice with the finger bite exercise. You need to sing with your mouth wide open and your throat relaxed, which boosts your vocal resonance and creates a strong chest voice. Check out this video for tips on chest voice singing.

Little Fish's music is diverse, so you can experiment with different genres, tempos, and emotions as you learn. However, certain songs showcase Sophie's unique style and are worth studying. Here are three examples:

  • "Bang Bang": This is perhaps Little Fish's most famous song. It starts with a soulful melody, then shifts to a yelling chorus that shows Soph's powerful belting and raspy tone.
  • "Dear Leader": This song highlights Sophie's growling technique, which she uses to convey anger and frustration. It also includes a cool vocal glitch and some falsetto singing.
  • "Am I Crazy?": This is a slower ballad that emphasizes Juju Sophie's gorgeous timbre and vibrato. It's a great example of how she can convey emotion and vulnerability through singing.

To find more songs that match your vocal range and genre preference, you can use the song search tool on Singing Carrots. It allows you to sort and filter songs by key, range, difficulty, and style. You can also create a songbook with lyrics, sheet music, chords, and audio links using the Songbook feature.

Finally, don't forget to take care of your vocal health and posture, and to relax and enjoy the singing process. Little Fish's singing style is demanding, but it's also expressive, creative, and empowering. Use your intuition, skills, emotion, and thinking to make it your own.
