Singing and Chewing Gum

Just a quick tip for you today: One recommendation from the folks at Superior Vocal Health, who make several great products for singers:

Xylitol can help make the voice feel less dry! Found in such chewing gums as Trident, it might make an interesting addition to your vocal kit.

However, I don't recommend singing AND chewing gum at the same time. It's hard to sing when you're choking from inhaling that wad! Just try chewing before performance (that's gum, not tobacco) and let me know what it does for you. Funny thing, I've been keeping gum with me for years out of curtousy to my session singing friends, and have been reaping some good side effects.

Have a great weekend, all!

    Orbit's gum has that also, and I have noticed that when I chew it before singing I seem to sing smoother and my mouth does seem to not get as dry. Thanks for confirming this, I thought maybe it was physiological. lol

    Hi Dylan... no, indeed I think it's quite physical. Thx for letting us know the Orbit's gum works, too!
