    I think the Olly Murs song didn't suit your voice at all, but you sounded good in the second one. Your voice is good it just doesn't seem particularly powerful.

    Your "Heart skips a beat" cover is good to listen to, although I am not familiar with the original.

    I would say your singing is good, certainly good enough for open mic nights and YouTube. I can't see you making it big as a professional singer though, as it's a bit average (average in terms of people who can actually sing).

    I did enjoy the top one though - guitar, in tune vocals, violin - what's not to like?

    Alright, I see what you're getting at - thanks for the kind words though
    I do this as a hobby, so if anything comes of it, it's a nice bonus

    Thanks again!

    Yeah, you are pretty average. I just don't really like your timbre. (:

    I thought Patience was great.

    Didn't like the first one much tbh. I think that was just the song choice though, I like your voice.

    I thought you were pretty good - I preferred your version of 'Heart Skips A Beat' to the original, anyway.

    Nail on the head IMO, second song sounded good, first one was decent but not best suited to your voice.

    You're hitting the pitches well and you've got the right idea - I'm sure you're a great singer in a choral setting, for example - but if there's any way you could add a bit of grit (a bit more Tom Waits and a bit less Tay Zonday ) then that'd be a big improvement.

    I should add that I'm actually a terrible singer and you did a way better job than I could do, but that's just my two pence from hearing a lot of different singers. good luck

    Thank you very much! I'll try harder on song choice next time, but I'm glad you enjoyed it

    That's a big compliment, thank you I was a bit unsure about 'Heart Skips A Beat', but it's reassuring to know that you liked it

    Best piece of advice I've had yet - less Tay Zonday haha, but seriously, I would love to add a bit of grit on my voice. I'll work on it, cheers for some great feedback

    the second song suited your voice much better! for a moment I thought you were miming! The first one - really did not do you justice!

    Gulf of difference between the two songs - Patience was much better. I think this was due to the fact that (as probably pointed out before) it gave you the opportunity to 'belt it out' a bit more, and add more power.

    Still, I enjoyed both songs. Good luck

    I think you have a good voice and a lot of potential but you probably need a voice coach or someone to direct you. I like your cover of Patience a lot.

    I think your good, I don't like either of the orignal versions of the songs, but the second one sounds great with your voice, good luck with singing if thats what you want to do!
