Default Ocean Eyes - wip -

Hey all this is still a work in progress but I was a little excited as the vocals are performed by my 10 yr old stepdaughter. This was her first attempt at letting me record her. Just trying to get her comfortable with the process. I think this track is a good fit for her,

(I usually ask her to sing Slayer songs)

It's a bit wet effects wise at the moment

Cool, she's most likely going to take the cake at the next show and tell. The melody has wide intervals which we know makes for a technically more difficult performance but she nailed it great.

Really nice. Kinda 'mature' song for a ten year old.
Excited to hear the final mix.

I like it, the only thing I would fix is the sibilant sounds.

Very very nice. I could almost hear Kate Bush singing an adult version.

Thanks Mark

The song is originally by Billie Eilish,

*who is the first artist who was born in the 2000's to have a number 1 album-wikipedia*

I had never heard the song or heard of the artist until Emma played it for me.

We're going to keep working on it. I only recorded two takes and it was Emma's first time with the the headphones on recording. She was also reading the lyrics as she sang. With a little more work i think we will be able to capture a really great performance
