ROCK & POP VOCALS SESSIONS: 'DON'T SPEAK', NO DOUBT - WITH CHARLOTTE LUBBOCK

Watch session singer Charlotte Lubbock put her spin on 'Don't Speak' by No Doubt. This was an important song for Charlotte as it was ‘one of the first, female-fronted bands that influenced me to get into what I now do.' She loved Gwen Stefani’s 'gritty vocals in this pop song, but actually quite a rocky song for the time' and thought it 'was amazing to hear on mainstream radio’. Charlotte gives us a good insight into Stefani’s performance technique: ‘She uses a really clever dynamic story-telling method in this song, so she gradually builds into it and it gives you quite a lot of room to get angry’.

Charlotte Lubbock is a session singer and pianist, graduating from The BRIT School with the likes of Adele and Katy B. As a session singer, she works with producers and song-writers around the UK and US, providing the vocals to help them successfully promote their songs to record labels.
