Vocal and Songwriting Technique
Joe Boynton can help you develop a very clear, loud, and powerful voice that is also capable of subtle dynamics. Let him discuss his songwriting techniques and how he incorporates feel into his vocals.
I grew up in a town called Saugus, Massachusetts (Northshore of Boston). I fell in love with music at a very early age listening to my parents vinyl collection (The Beatles, Black Sabbath, and George Throgood) .
By middle school, I started finding more and more bands on my own thanks to mixtapes, close friends and the skateboard video game (Tony Hawk Pro Skater series). I started skateboarding and going small shows in Salem, Massachusetts around age 15.
These shows helped introduce me to punk, hardcore, and indie rock.
High school through college, I studied architecture and engineering for 9 years. In 2005, I sang and played guitar in short lived hardcore band called Breaking Waves, until I joined a local band called Transit in 2006.
Our first tours were playing basements, sharing vans and equipment with other bands. Our overall goal with Transit has always been to make every album completely different and more unique than the last.
The best part I get out of touring in a band, is that it opens up my overall perspective on life. Living out of a van, studying the different landscapes passing by the window, performing in front of / meeting new people every night hits you like a wave. I grew up a quiet middle child in a pretty loud family, and never thought I’d be doing anything remotely like this.
Transit is 7 years strong and still recording, still performing, touring, and we’re loving every second of it.
