Jimmy Fasulo

Tracking Engineer / Vocal Performance/ Characterization Coach

With 17 years of experience in vocal performance- ranging from Rap, Heavy Metal, Pop, Punk, R&B to Musical Theater- Jimmy is here to guide you through refining both your in studio and on stage vocal techniques, refine your delivery, and arguably most importantly, help you connect your voice with your spirit. Characterization is the process of introducing more of an artist’s personality into a song- certain delivery techniques can be used to humanize and create a more empathetic “Character” for the listener to relate to and build a bond with. If you are looking to improve your techniques, refresh your voice, or make sure you’re as present in your art as you can be- Jimmy is on call to work with you phrase by phrase to build a complete package of a vocal performance either behind the boards or strictly for education. Co-Owner at Chamber 43, a vinyl, record, coffee and culture shop.
