Janis Joplin’s voice

 

Could you give a brief description of Janis Joplin’s voice?

Our take of Janis Joplin’s voice – small voice but singing with a big heart! She could sing quietly, using a slightly breathy cooing sound and then move into ‘rip your heart out’ mode on the higher notes. Sometimes she used so much heart that her high notes would crack and distort.

I heard you talk about making cover numbers your own, wouldn’t Janis Joplin fit this category perfectly?

Yes, definitely. She always put her own stamp on a song
