Patrice Peris Voice Studios Artist Feature of the Month: Hayden!

Hayden has been an artist at the studio since the start and in her time here she has proven herself to be a jack of all trades. Whether performing Classic Disney hits, where her acting skills shine, or rocking out and letting the music take control, she has always had a knack for stealing the crowd’s attention. Hayden has performed at various venues such as Faneuil Hall, Northborough Holiday Trolley and tree lighting, The Spirit of Shrewsbury, and the Westborough Spring Festival to name a few.

When describing her love for being a performer Hayden says, “I’ve grown to love watching people’s facial expressions when I perform. Not only does it work as a silent and indirect survey, but you can learn a little about a person by their reaction to the song you’re performing.” She is inspired by the artists who are not all about being celebrities, looking up to singer/songwriters such as Utada and Madame Macabre. With her darker tones often expressed through her voice, it is no surprise that Hayden relates music as calling to her, similar to “the characters in horror movies who venture alone to the creepy noise in the basement.”

When discussing her experience at the studio Hayden say,“I always feel at ease when I’m learning a song, and I never fret on my mistakes because Patrice always finds a way to teach me in my own learning style. Not only do I leave every lesson learning more, but I even find myself learning, things such as social skills, while performing at gigs through the studio.”

Recently, Hayden has fulfilled a dream of hers and been cast as the lead role of Mulan in Clinton Middle School’s production of the musical “Mulan JR!”

“I have always wanted to sing the song Reflection because I am not what people see on the outside. Many people believe that just because you are in a specific category you need to stick with it and be happy. I feel Reflection summarizes that fear of not being able to be good enough in that category even though you have put so much effort into it” (Hayden). We are so happy to announce you can catch Hayden performing “Reflection” live as Mulan on March 11th and 13th at 7pm at Clinton Middle School.


For more on Hayden be sure to get the latests updates on her upcoming performances on social media!

Check out what others are saying:

“The performance workshop has helped me. So much that I did it a second time! You coach others with different drills, but you also learn as a student as well. It can teach you how to be one with the music; meaning you get what the song is trying to express. Which makes it all the more amazing.” — CL
“The performance workshop helped me see how I have to create a mood and keep the audience engaged through my delivery of the song. There are multiple ways to do this, such as through body language, moving to the beat, or through facial expression. I can use these cues to my advantage to augment my delivery.” — TZ

“I liked how we would sing and then April would make us stop to tell us how we could improve our movement while singing. What really helped me was when the audience would start being really excited or angry or sad. It helped me perform even when the audience isn’t the best, and I really appreciated the experience!” — MR

Artist Feature of the Month: Isaak

If you have ever seen Isaak perform you would instantly feel brightened by his warmth and fun personality on stage. Isaak didn’t always feel at home on the stage, though. One of his most memorable performances was actually his first one, and did not involve singing at all. A couple months into guitar lessons, he volunteered to perform a solo piece in front of 400 students. He says  “I will never forget the rush of energy and adrenaline I felt for the first time as a performer. That was a huge moment in why I do this.” And “doing this” now includes singing and playing guitar.

His inspiration to get into singing came from his mother, father, and church. At church ceremonies, his parents would play up front and everyone would just “sit in silence and listen.” Their ability to captivate an audience didn’t hit him until he began those guitar lessons, thus, began his musical journey. He states music isn’t only music, it is also “a spiritual thing, not religious, but music allows me to question the extent of human existence. I am driven by how music not only lets people forget about their problems, but how it can also provide answers.”

As Isaak continues his growth as an artist, he finds he can take on a different personae while playing guitar or singing a song. He says “music allows me to burst out of my shell.” He describes himself as an a“old soul who loves the sound of 50s, 60s, and 80s rock and blues.” Luckily, his voice naturally gravitates toward this style. He credits his confidence as a performer to Patrice Peris Voice Studios.

Before taking lessons with Whitney, he says he was suppressed by all the outside voices saying pursuing a passion for music just did not make sense. Being at the studio has helped quiet those voices, at least a little. He states “Whitney and Patrice have been great mentors in driving me in the right direction as to how to improve. Whitney specifically every lesson breaks through my ego and allows me to be myself. The BIGGEST thing about the studio is that it teaches you confidence when you sing and perform.”

His current plans involve performing in front of an audience, big or small, as much as he can so he can develop his “skills of being the best rock/blues artist of [his] generation,” he recently became involved with the band “Dancing With Delilah” as the lead vocalist, and his life goal is to max-out a stadium with 60,000 people. Why that number you may ask, well, “a man can’t jump if he doesn’t know how high.” Keep your eye out for Isaak this summer outside Faneuil Hall in Boston, MA, as he was accepted to be a street performer there!
