i would say you're voice is a little "nosey". hard to be sure due to the quality of the recording, but it sounds like you might even be sitting down.
Seriously thanks! Before I stopped lessons I asked my teacher if my voice sounded nasally and he said no, that my voice just needed to get stronger.. But nah, I wasn't sitting down. I was standing up and something that I think i'm actually good at is projecting my voice (not so much for head voice).

haha.. what would I actually be changing when I sing? Or is just singing via focusing on your nose my voice will naturally change? I don't quite get that technique.. But thanks heaps for all the advice - a lot of it makes sense (like the balance of tension between muscles and using deep scales to strengthen diaphragm

If your stoic or static your audience will be able to tell, if you sell what you sing your emotional honesty will come across loud and clear.

Also, if you are interested in screaming...

check out a DVD called The Zen Of Screaming (Parts 1 and 2). Some great tips and techniques in there from vocal experts. I don't use it myself but people swear by it and after watching the movie I saw some pretty big names promoting it so...
Thanks also. You have a point about the emotion and it's something I actually focus on now (trying to think about how the lyrics relate to something that's happened to me .etc.). Not so interested in screaming though... lol although checked out the trailer for that dvd lol it's amazing how versatile the voice can be!

i don't really look at the nose experiments as a technical approach to singing. it's just a familiarization exercise. it's not to achieve a sound, it's to find more possibilities. i did it this way rather than learning other peoples' songs so as i could set myself apart from this idea or concept i had pertaining to the sound i'd like to achieve - which is heavily influenced (usually) by our musical tastes - and instead, find the voice(s) of me. basically, i guess, you just have to be willing to make mistakes that are far more terrible sounding than simply missing a note here and there, and learn from them.
