Jamie Cullum: "I found that my voice would hurt…"

I would never have guessed: I reviewed Jamie Cullum at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and at the Proms (photo credit: Sisi Burn) , and found his performance energy astonishing. But, he writes today – with quite some honesty and candour – that he’s been really going through it with voice troubles:

“I got very sick in the first tour in the USA of last year. In an effort to get through the schedule I pushed my voice in new ways which, though I was managing to make the necessary sounds, left my vocal chords ravaged and raw. I found that I constantly had a sore throat and that my voice would hurt when I sang. A combination of never really studying the mechanics of how my voice worked, dealing with a persistent form of the flu and general exhaustion had left my singing voice in a precarious place that I had never experienced before.

“It was a scary time ….”

The full story – and how he plans to put it right – are on Jamie Cullum’s Terrified Studios blog

  1. You may try Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net). i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious scratchy throat.
