If there’s one thing I absolutely. Freaking. Hate in a singer, it’s a mid-Atlantic accent.
I hate “I”s that become “Ah”s, “like”s that become “lahke”s, people who ordinarily enunciate a ‘t’ making it into a ‘d’ – making something “better” into something “bedder”.
If you are not from North America, in the name of sanity, stop doing this when you sing. You do not sound like yourself. You just sound weird. Long live the Sara Storers and Kate Rusbys of the world, for they know how it should be done.
