    Every vocalist should listen!
    I sing professionally both solo and in a few bands. I found this podcast via a recommendation of an entertainment podcast, and it was so much more than I expected. I started taking voice lessons last year for the first time in 20 years, and wished I had being doing it much sooner as voice lessons are so important to honing my craft. Eric is an amazing vocal coach and I find helpful nuggets of vocal coaching wisdom every episode. I also enjoyed discovering some new artists (like Rosalia) that I hadn’t listened to in the past. Eric does an amazing job with these interviews and they are truly essential listening to any singer who wants to keep learning and growing as a musician!

    This podcast allows me to connect to my passions!
    I haven’t sang in a choir in over a decade and miss learning about singing and vocal technique. This podcasts allows me to learn more about singing and reminds me the importance of vocal warm ups to help preserve my voice as a teacher.

    This is an incredible inside look at what vocalists at the top of their field are doing to get to and stay at their peak performance. The material is gold for all performers, and the podcast is beautifully produced.

    Great Guests, Unlikable Host
    I heard an episode of this when I was listening to Wine Thirty and hopped over to see if other episodes were better. The guests are all amazing and I love hearing what they have to say, but the host thinks he’s an NPR host and talks more than his guests do. I’ll probably try this podcast out again in the future but the current format is just annoying.

    Reconnects me with my vocal lessons
    These days, I’m always on the go and doing anything but singing. But now I can listen to humanizing, awesome chats with great singers AND get guided vocal warmups to reconnect me with my singing past.

    I just discovered this podcast and am thrilled that it exists. I’ve only listened to the episode with Ariana Grande, but I’m hooked. It was fascinating to be a fly on the wall during the vocal lesson segment. I can’t wait to hear more.

    Love this Podcast💜
    This podcast is so cool! What a great gift for singers. I have enjoyed each episode so much. It is interesting to hear each artists’ process and what they take away from their sessions with Eric. They are all unique and regardless if the artist is someone you are interested in, some of the issues they bring up may surprisingly be issues you are dealing with. It’s awesome to hear their stories, and in between Eric shares these wonderful exercises that any vocalist can benefit from!
  • julieta 90210

    What an incredible look behind the scenes on the importance of maintaining vocal health, regardless of the level of stardom. It’s amazing to also hear more about the ways in which some of the world’s biggest artists have worked on their voice over the years to ensure longevity and stamina in their careers.

    New favorite podcast
    An interesting glimpse into incredible voices. Love hearing the artists stories and how important the coach is behind the scenes!
  • SuperCaptainPete
    Well done
    Such interesting insight. I never new the effort it took to be a singer. My layman brain assumed that if you were a talented singer you just went out and sang. These podcasts gives insight about what it really takes to be a super star. Warm ups, practice, more warm ups and more practice. I never realized what it took. Eric Vetro’s podcasts explains the ins and outs and it is incredible. I can’t wait for the next episode.

    What a great podcast! I was entertained— but I learned so much about Arianna personally, and about what goes into being a “mega star”. Eric Vetro seems to be not just her mentor, and a really good friend. I LOVED his personal stories too. Can’t wait for the next one.

    Backstage Pass with Eric Vetro
    It is apparent Eric is the Obi Wan of voice coaches - his conversation with Ariana is not only engaging but also demonstrates the deep trust and admiration each has for the other - one’s voice is such a powerful yet fragile instrument - it will be fascinating to listen to future episodes with Eric and his clients.
