Are Vocal Effects Harmful for Singers?

“Can vocal effects such as distortion, grunting and growling be produced without traumatising the vocal folds?”

Dr Julian McGlashan and Cathrine Sadolin have been researching why some singers get in to trouble and why some don’t when they use vocal effects such as:

  • Vibrato
  • Vocal Breaks
  • Air
  • Screams
  • Creaking,
  • Ornamentation
  • Distortion
  • Growl
  • Grunt
  • Rattle
  • Tuva
