What does nasally singing sound like?

Singers who sing with nasality lack a certain fullness in their singing voice.

Instead, the sound of their singing voice is muffled or thin.

How to know if you’re singing nasally?

The following test helps you detect to what extend you’re relying on nasality while singing.
 
Simply, sing something while you alternate between pinching your nose and letting it go.
 
If there’s a big difference in how clear/full the sound of your singing voice is when you pinch your nose closed vs when you’re not, you sing through your nose.
 
And if it stays pretty much the same, you don’t.

Why do I get nasally when I sing?

For many singers, it’s just something that happens, habitually.
 
Others, use nasality to make their singing voice sound a bit more edgy.
 
Or they reach high notes more easily when singing nasally.
 
However, there are ways to reach powerful high notes and edgy flavours, that don’t require nasality.

Is singing through your nose bad?

There’s nothing inherently wrong with nasality as it doesn’t impact your ability to sing whatsoever.

However, it does come with that muffled/thin sound characteristic.

A simple way to get rid of nasality when singing.
