Who is Anthony Kiedis vocal coach?
Howdy. My name is Anthony Kiedis and I am a singer with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I am here to talk about Ron Anderson and training with him vocally. I was having a difficult time expressing what I wanted to express with my voice because I had no training. And I have been screaming and yelling and singing for years. Something just wasn’t right. Obviously, I had no technique and at a certain point as a singer that just became a limitation.
As my music grew and my desire to grow as a vocalist happened. I got lucky enough to meet Ron. And I sat down with him and I could instantly tell that he was an incredibly professional person and knew what he was talking about and that he had dedicated his life to music and singing. I felt a great sense of confidence sitting in front of him. When we began it was a real struggle, and I had a very difficult time placing my voice and making the sounds and finding the notes with the flexibility and the freedom that I wanted. But over a period of time, the change was drastic and remarkable. And for me a huge relief.
Finally, I was able to sing the things that I wanted to sing in the way that I wanted to sing them. And that was new to me. And when I would shy away from going back to my lessons with Ron I would start to lose that. So basically the more time I spent with him, the better I got.Anthony Kiedis
And now whatever I am having a situation or I am sick, or I am struggling, or whatever, it’s like making that magic call. And I sit down with Ron, and he works with me. There is something very old and very proven about the technique that he uses. There is a lot of science to it and the longer I spend working with him the more I learn the subtleties of that science and how to apply them you know hopefully without thinking about it too much while I am actually performing. But Ron is a master. He knows what he is doing. It’s been a beautiful experience working with him. I definitely could not have achieved the things that I have as a singer without him. And I really look forward to working with him for the rest of my life as a singer.
Who is Anthony Kiedis? From high school to the world’s craziest band
Anthony Kiedis (born November 1, 1962) is best known as the lead singer of the American funk rock group Red Hot Chili Peppers. But he is also a songwriter and rapper. At the age of 15, he founded the band called „Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem” with his best friend Michael Balzary (Flea) and schoolmate Hillel Slovak. Although the group was formed more of a joke, after a few appearances in Los Angeles clubs it turned out that it has potential. And Kiedis himself was a proper material for a frontman.
With the successive club performances, the initially modest repertoire of the group began to expand. The most memorable concerts took place at The Rhythm Lounge in Los Angeles (debut) and at the Kit-Cat Club in Hollywood, where the band gave a legendary concert only wearing socks. Already then the crazy character of the band, for which he is known to this day, was revealed.
Los Angeles and Hollywood performances. Debut album and cooperation with George Clinton
The popularity of the band, already renamed the Red Hot Chili Peppers, grew with its setlist. The group decided to record a demo that EMI liked. Under her auspices, the Hots recorded their first self-titled album (1984). The release then caught the attention of George Clinton himself, who decided to produce their second album “Freaky Styley” (1985). However, none of the records was successful. Just like the next one. To make matters worse, individual members of the group began to struggle with addictions.
The albums “Mother’s Milk” (1989) and the groundbreaking “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” (1991) brought better times and global success. The band reached a peak of popularity and became famous all over the world. The video for “Under A Bridge” did not come off MTV’s antenna, and the tour seemed to be endless. Unfortunately, Anthony and the rest of the band members still couldn’t cope with alcohol and drugs, which resulted in frequent changes in the group’s line-up later.
Declared vegetarian, actor, writer, producer, father
Despite worse periods and personal shuffles, the Red Hot Chili Peppers remain in the elite of funk-rock music to this day. They are also still one of the best live bands in the world. The group is constantly developing on each subsequent album, enriching its sound with new elements. Periodic changes of the lead guitarist have also become a tradition. Anthony himself has changed as well: fought his addictions, became a declared vegetarian, and also became a father.
Kiedis wrote the biographical book Scar Tissue (2004) about his experiences. Throughout his career, he also played several roles in such films as “Less Than Zero” (1987) or “The Chase” (1994). He also showed in television series. After years, as he says “screaming and yelling”, he finally decided to take singing lessons from a vocal teacher to the stars Ron Anderson. The artist left the years of the craziness behind, but it is never too late to develop his vocal technique.
