Oceans (Hillsong)

Song Tutorials | 12 comments

“Oceans” is one of the top female-led songs in contemporary worship music. I remember when it was first released… marvelling at the fresh lyrical ideas and Taya Smith’s beautiful voice! Such a lovely song, but not an easy one to sing!  Check out this video for tips on how to:

  • use edgy vocal fry to give strength to the beginning of your phrases and get rid of a weak, breathy voice
  • engage the right vocal resonators to gain richness, power, and freedom
  • hit that high note in the bridge with power (“take me DEEEEEPER”)!
  • sing in a contemporary mix voice that sounds like chest voice extended up high, but without the tension and strain
