So leading up to a tour I start to do some things for my voice. This includes not speaking very much which for me is hard!!
I also have to sleep with an air purifier in my room to help with allergies. FYI it sounds like a plane taking off and landing in my room lol!
Once the tour arrives which always seems to sneak up on you, I cut out all coffee and tea which is so painful for me as a caffeine addict. The only tea I can have is Throat coat tea and it tastes GROSSS!!
Back stage I warm up by making stupid sounds with my voice and funny faces , the worst thing is to sing without warming up.
I drink a ton of honey and lemon water, but I always take a shot or have a glass of wine before I hit the stage to help calm nerves, now its not recommended but it works very well for me.
When you re on the road for a long time it takes its toll , and the common thing that happens is of course I loose my voice, so I take a mini steamer with me so this is pretty much my best friend whilst touring it looks crazy but it saves me!!!
I also make sure I warm down which is just as important as the warm up , trying to be as kind to the chords as I can, and of course the big one is to get as much rest and sleep as possible!!! Hmmmm that doesn’t always work as planned lol!
