    Default Any female vocalists???

    Given that there seems to be a new wave of collaborations and the like: are there any female vocalists around here that would be keen to lay down vocal tracks for three songs that I'd like to cover (for old times sake really)???

    I use online session musicians all the time. That’s probably the best place to look.

    Get out to some open mics and open jams. Or if there is a college nearby, they might have a music program. Go out and see some female-fronted bands in your area. You will meet the right person.

    Vocal teachers are a good resource for sessions/tracks. They are professional and try to nail things quickly and move on, not turn your project into “a stepping stone for their own career.”

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Hello.

    Thanks for all the input and advice.

    I was kinda hoping to be able to do it on much the same basis as our current online collaborations though really. And it's really not for any other reason than, as noted, old times sake I guess, as well as my own betterment and experience, so paying a professional online session musician is not something I could justify really. And due to personal circumstances: I cannot really venture out from home (studio) for any extended periods of time.

    Let's see. Maybe there's one or two lurking around that would be interested. No rush on this obviously. I've not even completed the backing tracks themselves as yet. But I think I'll post the three tracks anyway and see if I get any takers???

    But thanks again everyone. Much appreciated.

    First one...

    Saraya - Love Has Taken Its Toll...



    Attempted to cover this, with my first and only band, very late '80's / early '90's, but couldn't find a vocalist at the time (well: couldn't find a vocalist at the time that didn't want to make me run screaming into traffic or that was dedicated enough to at least try).

    This died the same horrible death as the first one.........

    Oh and for the sake of interest:

    Only discovered this yesterday much to my surprise. Lorraine Lewis (Femme Fatale) in later years. But spot the guitarist on the right??? None other than Ms. Nita Strauss. Now THIS is a performance by a female lead guitarist that I can get my head around (this in reference to some or the other post of mine on the subject somewhere around these parts)!!! LOL!!!

    She’s great. Wonderful. Talented. Dedicated. Seems like a nice person. Not too shabby looking. But how is this helping me??? LOL!!!

    If you’re possibly suggesting that she could cover the three songs then I’m afraid to say that I respectfully disagree.

    Well to be fair I’m certainly no expert on vocalists so probably I’m wrong. And I haven’t listened to anything else of hers i.e. just browsed her YouTube channel is all.

    Not seeing the connection though. Are you saying I could contact her and maybe she’d be game to cover these three songs???

    Oops. Sorry. We were “overposting” each other.

    You have a point. I mean she can only say yes or no right???

    Thanks. Appreciate the suggestion.

    P.S.

    Not holding my breath though so this thread still open to amateurs that may be interested!!! LOL!!!

    Never mind. Just watched that Sultans Of Swing that she did. Have actually seen it before i.e. somebody was showing me the dude and his videos and I never made the connection. That dude, by the way, is one talented individual!!!

    And yeh. All jokes aside: she is darn good. No question about it. But now that I know who we’re talking about I just don’t see it happening. Not to mention she’s a pro. and a celebrity of sorts. Cannot see her being too interested in my little call back the past excursion to be honest.

    Do you mean, in this forum? It's been a sausage fest since I remember.

    Finding a singer gal for the task online as suggested is not a bad idea at all. Maybe someone who makes decent videos and not hyped so much butt... I mean does a decent job with the mouth... I mean purrs well when... You know. The backing track, dammit.
