Looking for male and female vocalists to collab with

Post by Hobbins17 » Wed Aug 28, 2019 11:57 am

Hi everyone!
I recently wrote a breakup song that's a duet and I'm looking for male and female vocalists who are able to sing on it for me.
I'd also be happy to work with anyone who wants to change what I have and collab together. I made a rough instrumental that you can listen to and I would love feedback and someone to work on this song with me to improve it!

I can send lyrics and whatever necessary files over to anyone who is interested!

Thanks very much! :D

My two cents, Leanne: a scratch vocal and lyrics are needed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scratch_vocal

Time is valuable. Professionals charge for time. Save yourself and them time by singing the duet, recording it, and posting it on SoundCloud. Include the lyrics.

This will cost you minutes and save hours for those considering working with you.

Including a fake sheet makes sense also. https://music.stackexchange.com/questio ... -fake-book

Best wishes.

Hello there!
Thank you for your reply!
Usually, I post songs to Soundcloud with a vocal line in place, however, because this one turned out to be a duet, I couldn't find a man to sing on the track with me (or a better female vocalist for that matter), so I was hoping there might be some people here who could help with that. Sorry, I wasn't clear on that :( the intention wasn't to try and submit it professionally or anything. I was just hoping to find some singers who could help me get it to that first stage kind of thing. Short of me doing my best man voice and help from a pitch shifter, I wasn't sure where to go from here.
Is there anything you suggest I could do to help me get it to that initial stage?
Thanks again for your feedback! I really appreciate it :D
Kind regards,
Leanne

This may seem harsh.

Take immediate action to move the song along. Or it will die on the shelf.

Transfer the vocal lines by any means necessary. Sing it into your phone. Get a trial of masterwriter.com and click tools.

It simply fails to matter who sings, or what register they sing in. What if it turns out to be the greatest man on man love song of all time - chartwise?

Anything you write can be rewritten and re-recorded. However. It will only go as far as you push it.

Get it done and move on. Add it to your lessons learned. Carve it up into three songs.

In summary: stop discussing and take sonic action.

p.s.: Make it fun. Make it a game. See how many versions you can produce in one hour. (That is a really good strategy: Have fun, go fast, get giddy, repeat.) There is only one thing/person to overcome. You.

Sorry for my late reply!
Don't worry about sounding harsh, you're totally right! This is great advice that I needed to hear!
I am curious about masterwriter though. I have heard about it being a great resource for lyric writing. But I couldn't see anything about a 'tools' heading on the website. What kind of stuff would these tools help with?
Many thanks :D
