Hiring a Singer

Hiring a singer is typically done with one of the following arrangements:

Background Singers will sing backgrounds to your existing vocals. For example, they will double your vocals, sing harmonies or ooh and ahhs.

Demo Singers will sing the lead vocal part for your song for the purpose of shopping your song to labels or artists. The recording with the demo singer's vocals isn't intended for commercial release, since it's not 'featured'. Demo vocals are intended to showcase your song in the most impressive way possible - with a killer vocal performance. This is important for getting the interest of labels, publishers, or the artist you'd like to record your song, since the vocal performance is prominent in how people listen to music and judge songs. If the vocal melody and lyrics aren't already written when you approach a singer, you might need a topliner or writer to write the part. Many topliners also sing.

Featured Singers will sing the lead vocal part for your song or track for commercial release. Typically, featured singers will charge more for the privelage of releasing the track commercially with their vocals, and depending on what was agreed, using their name and/or likeness as part of the release.

Singers who also write - Many singers are songwriters. If the song is not completely written and the singer writes all or some of the vocal melody or lyrics (as opposed to singing a part that was already written), they will typically expect to be recognized as a co-writer, unless you specifically agree the writing is 'work for hire' (aka a full buyout) which may cost more. It is typical for co-writers to keep a share of the 'publishing' - the royalties associated with songwriting a song, unless a buyout arrangement was agreed to.

Topliners or 'top line writers' are writers who help write the vocal melody (and sometimes lyrics), to a finished backing track. This is common in EDM, Hip Hop and EDM/R&B influenced pop. Any genre where the 'track' came first. Producers and DJs bring a finished track to topline writer to write a vocal line on top of the track. As long as the backing track is essentially fixed and finished, and someone else is asked to write the vocal melody (and in some cases lyrics), they are referred to as topliners. Many topliners are also demo singers - they can deliver a good sounding vocal performance of the 'topline' they wrote. Make sure to clarify if the vocals being delivered by the topliner are demo vocals (to showcase and shop the song), or featured (released commercially with their vocal recording).

 

When asking a session singer to sing your track, make sure to specify whether the vocal part is already written and you just need their vocals, or whether you need them to help you write the vocal part as well.

It's also a good idea to discuss in advance if you need the vocals doubled, if you want any backgrounds, harmonies or adlibs, and whether you want the tracks delivered as dry takes or edited and pre-processed. We recommend getting the dry takes and editing and processing yourself or with your mix engineer. This gives you greater flexibility and is less work for the singer.

Different singers specialize in different genres and types of singing. Some vocalists have breathy vocals, some belt, some have a country twang while others nail that urban vibe. Singers also have different vocal ranges - how long or high they can comfortably sing. Some session singers have better recording capability than others. Some singers have their own studios while others rely on others for recording. Some deliver just dry vocal takes while others can edit and tune the vocals they record, saving you money on studio time and outside engineers.

A good way to find the right singer for you is to listen to their samples. Their samples are likely a good representation of the style, color and quality of their voice. Read reviews from previous clients, and make sure to always contact the singers you like through SoundBetter for protection.
