The Making of a Song - "Broken Year" (The Background Vocals)
Updated: Jul 9, 2021
Meet Julie Broschard, the session singer who I chose to do the background vocals for "Broken Year." The key to finding just the right sound was to choose a singer whose vocal tone blended well with Mandy's, but was just different enough to make the harmonies really pop out. Julie says the voices who who influenced her most as young girl were Stevie Nicks, Karen Carpenter and Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries. Talk about a great match!! You might know Julie as the voice of Ariel in Disney World for the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show or as part of an acoustic duo called The Running Mates. She has over 135k subscribers and over 15 million views on her channel. You can check her out at YouTube!
