Watch the video that a lot of people will be talking about over the next couple of days… in his NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert from a couple of days ago, Teddy Penderass drops an acoustic set, or as much as an acoustic set that he can and shows the people that he doesnt need a damb autotune to make good music. *
….somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. “People felt like I was using it to sound good,” says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. “But I was just using it to sound different.”
* So, this is making its rounds on the internets and no doubt is it interesting…. but I may be in the minority when I ask, “didn’t we know this about Pain?” Or at least, didn’t we figure this? I guess a lot of people don’t really think about the music that they are listening to, but T Pain is a ridiculously talented dude.
Lest we forget, he’s not some flash in the pan guy, because he had major MAJOR radio hits for a good decade. You don’t represent like that, for that long, without talent.
Crazy that he can sang like that. Crazy how songs about skrippers sound pretty dern good when sang straight up. I love them already, but this is a cool change of pace. The last record that he sings, is his new single, Drankin Patna. I like it. Here is how the commercial release sounds.
The rapper turnt sanga is one of my favorite dudes out there and I think we might start to see whole different side of this dude musically. Thats a good thing.
By the way, I think people get the autotune usage misconstrued. Mostly, its used to change the way a voice sounds, but the real usage of it, is to program a voice to be perfectly pitched on a particular note. If you can’t sing it just sounds like a robotic voice, but, there are a lot of artists (you’d be surprised) that use autotune to just touch up their voice a lil bit in songs and during live performances. Cher uses autotune. Faith Hill. Jamie Foxx. Many more….
This dude can sing, and he is a ridiculously talented song writer. The autotune thing was just something he did to get known – and now its “his thing” that he’s known for, but lets appreciate the talent that is T-Pain, the man who brought us, “I’m In Love With a Stripper” … I love tha remix, one of my favorite jawns ever.
