Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance) Interview With Vocal Coach Zuke Smith On Alternative Press!


New Jersey gem, Deborah “Zuke” Smith, is so much more than a vocal coach. Zuke has combined her singing/songwriting experience, vocal training, knowledge of the music industry, and love of helping others together, creating her refreshingly unique brand of artist mentoring. She works with vocalists across the board, from established entertainers to aspiring industry hopefuls to the recreational chanteuse, helping them hone their craft and determine what they want to do with their developing voice. One such student is former My Chemical Romance rhythm guitarist and backup vocalist, Frank Iero, who just released his debut solo record, Stomachaches, yesterday (August 25th).The two sat down to chat at Zuke’s lakefront home about Frank’s new career as a lead vocalist, how strengthening his singing has enhanced his writing, what he’s doing to prepare his voice for his upcoming tour, and more.

Grace Happens Special Olympics Benefit Concert

July 12th @ 5pm | Wes Milford PAL | West Milford, NJ

New Jersey-based 12-year-old, Grace Nevin (Grace Happens), has been working with vocal coach/artist mentor Deborah “Zuke” Smith for several years. This Maple Road Elementary School 6th grader is not only a talented singer-songwriter, but also has a heart of gold. She has taken Zuke’s advice to use her talent to make the world a better place by combining her passion for singing with her love and respect for the West Milford Special Olympics Team. This weekend Grace will be putting on a special fundraiser event with all proceeds benefiting the team. She’ll be performing a 10-song set, including an original song, “I Found An Angel,” she wrote for her favorite Special Olympian and friend, Ben Weiss. Grace and Zuke teamed up with Mecurio-Nadel Music (Lee Nadel & Rich Mercurio – Lana Del Rey, Regina Spektor, Idina Menzel), Marc Ribler (Jethro Tull, Carole King), and Tabitha Fair to write and record the song.

Grace’s inspirational work is catching all sorts of attention, last week the Mayor bestowed a Proclamation of the Township of West Milford to Grace for all her hard work, claiming July 12th “as a day of recognition of the selfless contributions made by Grace to the West Milford Special Olympics Team”. Tomorrow morning (Wednesday, July 9th) Grace will be live on Good Morning America talking about her benefit concert and performing her original song! Tune in to GMA tomorrow morning to watch and follow Grace online here:
