First released on video, this program was the first of its kind to have been produced in the UK, and is still a 'best seller' in music stores and mail order companies in the UK, and Europe. The program begins by explaining the principles of voice production, and graphics are used to illustrate certain points. Sam West, with the aid of two singers, Candi McKenzie, and Bridget Lynch-Blosse, explains and demonstrates various singing techniques, i.e. Breath Control, Range, Resonance, Vibrato, Aural (ear) training, plus more. In the 'workout' section, ten different exercises are presented, each going through various keys - thus accommodating both low and also high voiced singers. Each of the ten exercises are intended for specific areas of vocal technique. The DVD has proved even more popular than the video version: taking advantage of this new format, viewers can select different parts of the program quickly - thus varying their practice routines. The written musical accompaniment to the exercises can also be viewed on-screen via the DVD menu. Available worldwide, distributed by Faber Music: product ref IMP 9987A. Singers of various styles, from 'Classical' to Contemporary, continue to find this program invaluable for their singing. Duration 59mins
Released in January 2014, UK musician Sam West combines his gospel piano skills with classical violin discipline, to create an album that is both soothing, and entertaining. A fresh, sparkling approach, that will soothe the listener's spirit, and bring joy to the soul!
These days it is so easy to overcrowd recordings with many sounds, layers, and complex arrangements. But having played the piano in church from the age of 12, and also starting violin lessons at around the same time, I realised from early on, the importance of playing music as opposed to just creating it. In this album I wanted to give the listener a sense of wonder and excitement from just the violin and piano together. I chose a performance feel, as opposed to editing out every wrong note or imperfection - which is done as the norm these days. Some of these arrangements, of which I recorded the piano part first, I have played at various churches in the UK and abroad. I hope the recorded version will bring a blessing to the listener, as have the live performances, which I enjoy so much!
'JAMAICAN FOLK songs for all' is a CD collection of 14 Jamaican Folk songs produced by Sam West, in 2006. Suitable for everyone - from young to old! Contains words to the songs, and also instrumental tracks (karaoke style) to 7 of the songs.Adults and children will enjoy listening to the songs, and even singing their own versions - using the instrumental backing tracks.
