Welcome to Heart Vox
Hello Everyone, I’m Mae McKenna and I’d like to welcome you all to Heartvox. I started the concept of Heartvox in response to what I perceive to be an increasingly generic approach to singing in the mainstream. When coaching singers, I work on improving their general musicianship, rhythm, improvisation skills and most importantly - drawing out what is unique in their voices and ability to communicate what is in their heart.
Whether you are interested in coaching, my own music, The Rhythm and Roots Choir or just tuning into my blog and connecting with others interested in singing, I hope you’ll find something to interest you here.
I have been a professional singer and songwriter since the 70s. Since then, I have recorded one album with the original “Contraband”, 6 solo albums and many guest vocals with other artistes. In addition to my solo career, I have have been very successful as a session singer and vocal arranger. I’ve sung on over 200 top ten hits, numerous TV and radio commercials, films and television shows. This experience across multiple genres has equipped me to help singers gain skills in all contemporary styles.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for individual and group lessons as well as workshops and lectures.
I have just listened to your song Dream Lover on YouTube and I think your voice is beautiful. I was interested to read about drawing out what is unique in the individual’s voice as these days much of what you hear on the radio sounds the same. I used to and still do love Ten Good Reasons by Jason Donovan and had always loved the backing vocals and harmonies, used to and still do join in! I was interested to read where your singing has taken you. My husband writes songs and I play flute with them. Best wishes, Helen
Thank you Helen. I am still singing, writing and coaching. I am currently involved in a project celebrating female singer/songwriters from Billie Holiday to the present. We will be touring from October. All the best to you and your husband. Mae
