Lets see what Ashley Sherlock has to say about Vocalzone!
“Last year I completed over 330 shows and Vocalzones were a part of every single one, they have aided me when my voice hasn’t been 100% and I feel like I can give more when I use them, I have also turned many of my musical friends onto them as they are the best throat pastel for any singer, due to my high-intensity vocal it’s important that I can perform my best every night and Vocalzones have become a part of a pre-gig warm-up routine to help me when I need it most. I shall be appearing on ITV’s The Voice later this year and I shall definitely be using them then!”
