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.
