On Aug. 14, Leah Daniels will be appearing on Big Country with Rudy Blair, a new weekly country show on CBC Radio 2 that profiles Canadian country musicians through their personal playlists. Daniels, an Uxbridge, Ontario-based singer, is known for her hit single "Go Back."
Daniels recently sat down with CBC Music to demonstrate and explain the basic approach on how to yodel, a talent she picked up from her grandfather.
"So what yodelling is basically, is singing between your chest voice and your high voice," Daniels explains. She stresses that it takes a lot of practice and can lead you to make a number of strange noises.
"The biggest thing to remember is: relax," says Daniels.
Watch her video on how to yodel, below.
