    The vocalist on this abandoned it and dropped off the face of the earth. Looking for a vocalist to help me finish it. This is a great start, but it's just under 2:30 in length.

    I hope this is just a demo, because the production of this is not good. No bass. The vocalist needs much more presence and reverb. It just doesn't sound right for its genre. Are you a band needing a vocalist?

    It's cool and I like everything!
    especially this kind of production where is preserved that raw "mojo", ...as for vocal prod, my suggestion would be to add a little distortion, and on some part (like that on 1:35) I would add chorus or phaser (or both in some amount) to add even more fuzziness to it all :)

    end it yourself! :)
    polish that vox and end song with mesmerizing solo turning into fade out :)

    Well I didn't ask for a critique. Thanks anyway. The title should have told you it is very much "in process". I am a producer seeking a vocalist to work with online.

    That actually is THE 2nd demo that the vocalist sent up. He took the bed track I had, used the lyrics the lyricist had given him to work with and he came up with the melody, and sung it. It is very much a demo, although I do have his high res vocal stems, to work with. I can either get a singer to sing more parts and arrange it so they work TOGETHER, or the new vocalist can sing the entire thing. He was sending up demo ideas and we liked this one (the lyricist and I), and we were going to continue development, when the vocalist dropped out of sight.

    I had considered what you suggest above, and I might actually go that way, if I don't get any takers. Thank you.

    I have hundreds if not thousands of potential vocalists in my collaboration group, so I am hopeful. I have hundreds of finished tracks so I usually find someone, after a bit of shopping it around. It just takes some time and patience. Anyone who is like me and looking for help is welcome to come and view the talent profiles these folks have posted. You never know when or where you will find what you need. Sometimes it comes from my collab group, and sometimes it comes from shopping it at sites like this. A person can never have too many connections. I have a compilation that can be browsed. Thanks.

    the track sounds fine to me musically.. but I agree the vocal is the weakest part... might be better to just start fresh
    with a different vocalist and vocal style even... also agree the vocal needs some processing if you keep it..

    the music has a nice loose, raw feel as noted above, but another skilled vocalist could tighten it up and give it more "mesh"
    might want to consider polishing the lyrics a bit more as well in that regard...

    overall nice work

    NAcho (from Spain
    Nacho (from Spain) has a very big spanish accent, but to me that adds to it. He has quite a raw style, but I have grown to like it a lot. I have a handful of tracks with him singing on it and I have become a fan of his work. I am kinda heartbroken that he had to bow out. A lot of this is subjective. Also it is very much in process.

    I'm interested.
    I've always looked for (and worked with) vocalists, male or female, for stuff I produce in different genres.
    please tell me more or let me know with a PM if you don't mind
