FEATURE: How the music scene responded to Donald Trump becoming the US president!

By now, pretty much everyone in the world is aware of the outcome from last night’s US presidential election day, seeing perhaps one of the most visceral and venomous campaigns seen in the history of US politics.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE: Vocals – Telle Smith (The Word Alive)

One sign of a good vocalist within the heavier fields of music is versatility. Being able to interchange between singing and screaming with such an effortless manner is not something that comes easily or quickly, but is one that Telle Smith, frontman for The Word Alive, has managed to showcase throughout the entirety of the band’s career. Latest full-length, ‘Dark Matter’, displays another step into improvement for the vocalist, and regardless of your opinion on any artist, constant improvement of their craft should be respected.

We had a little talk with Smith to see if he could share with us what made him want to become a vocalist (previously being a bassist for Greeley Estates), his inspirations, tips for warming up, as well as what to do if you sustain any vocal damage.

Label: Fearless Records


As we all grow up in life, things change. Our lives change, our tastes change, our perspectives change, and what we generally want for ourselves often changes. In this ongoing process of maturity and moulding of our true selves, if we look back, the shifts we’ve made are far more apparent. It’s normal then for a band to follow a similar pattern; the people that compose a band are, of course, people too. They want to create new things.
