We fell in love with this song by Volary and chose to cover it in the hopes of cheering up Sam. Follow her journey here: http://unfamousblog.tumblr.com/

Letting Go of Perfection

As I come to the end of a four-year recording project, I look back on vocal tracks I did two years ago versus a month ago. The difference is striking. After trying so many versions of the same song, I have come to understand something so fundamental but which has eluded me for years:

A good vocal track is not about being perfect.

I am a classically trained chorus girl ‘til the end. I’ve spent my entire musical career aiming to sound as perfect as possible. And while I have managed to make an impression on many, I know now that this attitude held me back from truly finding my voice and delivering my message.

To let go of perfection is to let go of fear.

I recently played at Volary’s (@unfamousblogmusic video release party. Keeping in mind the things I had learned during the recording process, I didn’t push my voice too hard, but instead let it settle into its “sweet spot”. I used my eyes to communicate with the audience, which instantly translated through my voice. I playfully played with dynamics, which kept my listeners’ interest.

Enveloping myself in the song’s message, my voice became expressive in a way that it never could if I simply thought “sing expressively”. I don’t know if I sang any wrong notes because there were no wrong notes.

The biggest difference though, was how firmly I now believed in the songs. In the past, I have often rushed through my tunes with the mindset that I have to fit in as many as possible before people get bored. But after recording them and hearing them with lush string arrangements, I knew that, as long as I hear those parts in my mind, the pared down versions would hold up. And they did! The trick was to not be impatient with them and to give them room to breathe.

True, many other factors came together to help create this magical set. The audience was extremely receptive and patient (there were plenty of technical delays which they happily drank through), and I had received a great introduction. But I would like to think that, should circumstances not be so forgiving, I would be just as confident in my delivery having learned these lessons.

The Face-to-Face Interview

Hey guys! Sorry It’s taken me so long to post, but keeping up with school while trying to live the dream isn’t as easy as you’d think. But anyway here I am with everything you need to know for your face-to face interview. 

First of all, congratulations!

By now you must know that neither the Walt Disney Company nor EG International Recruiting are responsible for covering any of your travel expenses to get to the interview, that’s all on you. (“Like” Volaris or Interjet on Facebook and you can find some great discounts sometimes).  Make sure you get there in time for the “just in cases”. What do I mean by that? I mean: Airline lost your luggage, airport traffic, bus terminal traffic, traffic, and more traffic. These interviews are held in big cities so you can expect some BIG traffic. 

Dress to impress! Remember: you’re impressing BUSINESS PEOPLE from one of the highest regarded companies IN THE WORLD. LADIES: Please, please, please! DO NOT dress like you’re heading out to the club, or about to be pimped out. I saw this WAY too much at my interview. Here are some guidelines:

*Closed-toe shoes

*Maximum heel height: 3 inches /5 cm

*Dresses/skirts must be knee length (not too tight, no stretchy material)

*If you wear tights: MUST be opaque

*Button down blouses not showing cleavage

*Dark neutral colors/Blouses paired with suit or skirt must be conservative color and prints

*Pant suits are totally acceptable (and cool if you find the right cut)


*NO perfume

Guys: keep it simple, keep it classy

*SUIT UP! (Dark neutral colors)

*wear a tie (don’t be a doofus)

*WEAR DRESS SHOES (who told you guys it’s ok to wear tennis shoes/mocassins to a formal interview???) 

Now, the most important element to the interview process is: SMILE! SMILE, SMILE, SMILE, SMILE from the minute you walk into that building. Trust me, you never know who is watching. 

The interview doesn’t last more than 10 minutes and they’re looking for you to be calm, cool and collected with a casual smile on your face. (Don’t overdo it, you’ll look ridiculous). Some questions:

*Tell me about you extra-curriculars

*Talk to me about why you applied for this program

*Tell me about yourself

*What were your top 5 position choices?

*Out of the 500 people I’ve interviewed, why should I remember you?
