The Impact of Alcohol on the Singing Voice

Alcohol

One of the reasons why alcohol has become an issue for some singers is because of the Rock n Roll culture that tends to follow the pubs and clubs scene. It’s not unusual, for example, for a band in residency at the local club to be offered an open bar tab during their set. Another reason why singers fall into the trap of drinking alcohol while singing is to mask those pesky nerves.

What I won’t be covering in this video are the significant personal and social issues that can arise for people who start to abuse the consumption of alcohol. Substance abuse, including alcoholism, is a significant issue in modern society and musicians don’t escape the statistics. If you think ‘drinking’ may be a problem for you, then I urge you to speak with a trusted friend or family member who can support you towards recovery.
