I think this is a great direction. I love the accompaniment, the words, the melody that has been created for the accompaniment. I like the singing OK, but it feels as if the singer is trying to whisper. After a while listening in sympathetic anticipation like I might sing along, my chest feels constricted; I feel as if I'm suffocating. Too much air restriction in the vocals. SING OUT! If the accompaniment is overpowered by louder singing, amp up the accompaniment. I don't mean sing out blaringly loud, just stop whispering. Instead of whispering, sing, plain and clear and true. And as I say, I love this direction.
