Lennon&McCartney, Jagger&Richards, Bono&Edge... Vocals definitely are the key to great songs. In the last years JustVera was privileged to work with the most talented singers here at Kompoz. Together we produced some pretty decent tracks. (Check out https://open.spotify.com/album/35Uc2Txve0bZy080qtwb2c if you find it hard to believe.) Yesterday, when walking my dog, I thought it would be nice to start a dedicated co-operation. A 'Me&You' which will create and produce original pop/rock. Building together songs with our unique signature. Preferably with lots of mutual feedback and contributions from the best musicians around. Would you be interested to give it a try? Share your views on how you'd see this work? Don't hesitate to send me a PM and we'll take it from there!

I've listened to several of PMJ's songs but I haven't heard this one until today! It's amazing how Haley Reinhart is able to change the character of her voice so seamlessly: from soft and warm to overdriven to falsetto ... all in one fluid motion! I'm in AWE!

Hi vocalists, I've made a new group "Producers" for anyone interested in music production. To get the ball rolling I've started a "Production of the month" poll in the hope to engage users in constructive discussion and to share ideas. From my time on here kompoz I've come to think that the role of producers has been very much neglected or overlooked. This often results in that songs: - Never get off the ground because users don't know how to make their idea to a full song. - End up having some low quality MIDI instrument parts without any dynamics. - Become a mess of incoherent user submitted tracks which lack a vision of what is good for the song. - Are poorly mixed/mastered and therefore do not give those involved the gratification of a good product. A good producer should be able to address these issues to get a song from initial idea to finished product. Feel free to join the group: https://www.kompoz.com/music/group/1056194 Poll: https://www.kompoz.com/music/group/1056194/poll/1056298 If anyone is interested in becoming a group Manager then let me know :)

There's an old joke about bands, which goes something like this: "For every 10 guitarists there are 5 bass players, 3 keyboard players, 2 singers and one drummer. And the drummer is already in 3 bands..." You can probably re-write this for the world of Kompoz: "For every 10 people who can make beats, there are 5 people who can make complete arrangements, 3 people who can write decent lyrics and one singer. And the singer has their invite button turned off". I write and record complete songs, but I am not a very good singer. I have uploaded two complete songs with my crappy vocals on and I have had 4...5 singers express interest over the last two months, but as yet nobody has actually recorded a vocal sep for either of them. So far the main benefit I have got from Kompoz is the ability to download vocal seps from others and then create tracks around them. This is a fun way to think about arrangements and practice mixing, but this is not what I originally hoped I would get from this place. I am still hoping that I might find a singer (or singers) to collaborate with. So, dear vocalists, my question is, what is the best way to collaborate with you? "Write better songs" (!) is the obvious answer and I am working on it, but what else? Do you prefer to collaborate when you can also contribute top-line and lyrics? Any other tips? I am really open to full collaboration (working on new ideas), not just getting vocals for my existing songs. All insights appreciated!

Question for engineers and anyone currently doing paid work as a session singer! I'm looking into providing services as a session singer on websites like SoundBetter and Airgigs. What format / quality etc would you as an engineer expect to receive vocal tracks in? (I would assume high quality Wav files but want to have some reassurance essentially!) I record directly into Studio One at the moment and the overall quality is good, although I need to look into some better sound proofing and headphones. Interested to hear your thoughts! I'm more nervous about my skills in recording and the technical aspects of remote session singing than the singing side... not in an egotistical way, I just worry that the quality of my files may not be up to scratch! :/

I have a project [concept album] which is a true life story of a musician that suffered from "Face blindness" - a neurological condition that can prevent people recognising other individuals. In its extreme form, individuals can mistake faces for everyday objects [have you heard of "The man who mistook his wife for a Hat? by Oliver Sacks?]. The collection of ten songs explains his story. Slow realisation that there is something wrong: Diagnosis. Denial. Anger and finally Acceptance, Hope and a good life lived despite the disability. The songs are strung together by a narrative {think 'The war of the worlds' album by Jeff Wayne} - already in progress by Gemini. However, we need a male rock vocalist that might be interested in a slightly bigger project than normal [a couple of the songs are already complete .... others less finished]. The songs hover between Rock/Blues/metal/psychadellic/prog. I am happy to share more if this peaks your interest. If it did work out, I would imagine that it would be spaced over a period of months rather than a short sharp shock. Anyway, looking forward to your replies ..... feel free to pm me if you prefer. Keep safe and sane Tony [Redfish] A written description of the dialogue and songs: https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/1008148/file/1033793

I am looking for someone with a good narration voice .... [male or female] .... would prefer a non-american-sounding narration voice The narrative will be spun out throught the album [think War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne] It is based on a real life story about a musician who develops 'face blindness' [prosopagnosia] The draft narration text can be found here - https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/1008148/file/1033793 The text can be edited so that the expression and flow feels right. The music genre floats between rock/blues/heavy/psychadelic. Please message me if interested
