My Voice Experience

Singer and guitarist Scott Von Heldt (aka: SVH) joins a new breed of vocal talent and offers up a glimpse into the future of the primitive. From entrancing tribal rhythms to unparalleled vocal incantations, SVH has long been admired by his peers and continues to push the envelope to create music with unrelenting passion and intensity.

Scott broke out into the original metal music scene of Northern Ohio at the age of 17 by releasing his first solo guitar record To Each His Own then went on to join local metal giants Vatican, Theater of Madness, and Kurai, which had him opening for national acts ranging from Quiet Riot, Slaughter, and LA Guns, to metal masters more in their vein such as Suffocation, Anthrax, and Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson among many others.

In 2002 he moved to Los Angeles and went on to join Ivan de Prume (White Zombie) and Martin St. Pierre (Cirque du Soliel) in the creation of HEALER, a band combining the elements of world music with modern metal! The bands debut Awakening has been hailed as one of the most original CD's released this decade and continues to garnish rave reviews. SVH recently lent his
extreme vocal abilities to the Sheesh E.P. by local thrash/funk quartet Baron Von Sloth.

In February of '09 SVH was chosen as lead guitarist and backing vocalist for former KoRn guitarist Brian "HEAD" Welch. The group toured lightly throughout 2009 and spent most of 2010 touring the US and Europe. In 2011 SVH did his last show with Head in New Zealand before resuming work on his solo career.

He is an instructor as well as a staff writer for the popular guitarist social network ShareMyGuitar.com and the new tattoo and music culture magazine Tattooed Music. Scott continues to add a unique sentiment to heavy music by infusing raw intensity with spiritual insight and global awareness. He is also the Author of the book Mind Over Metal and has a subsequent matching audiobook as well.

My Training

I've been a professional recording artist a touring musician for nearly 2 decades now and my travels have taken me all over the US and to 17 countries abroad! Over the years my passion for not only singing but expanding the self-expressive power of the voice has taken me on an incredible journey. Aside from music performance I started scoring and narrating indie films, went on to produce radio ads and commercials, penned several Jingles and song parodies for clients, wrote a book series with audiobook and ebook versions, have lectured and done clinics, coached and trained many of my peers in expanding self-expression and vocal abilities. I also write a weekly Zen Guitar column and am a staff writer for a magazine so I've got my foot (or pipes rather) in all areas of the entertainment industry!

My Studio Equipment

Mac OSX, Pro-Tools, Presonus Pre amps and I/O's, Studio-One 2, Reason, Superior Drummer, MXL, SHure, Marshall, Blue, and Audix mics, You Rock Midi Guitar, Ibanez Guitars and basses, Bogner Amps, Boss & Electro-Harmonix effects, Solid Cables, and D'addario Strings and much more!

Additional Skills

I have a passion for voice! I believe that there is power in the spoken (and sung) word and used properly the voice can cut through anything and convey a message. My clients usually want to sell something, be it a service, skill, or product, so they need their message to reach the customer, loud and clear and with a confident presence. This is something I have studied for years, something I have taught many others, and is well documented in my work.

So with that being said, give me a shot! I'm here to help others ad value to the world with their services and products so let me be the voice of your future success!
