Used two different singers for song demos and both times the vocal was as boring and lifeless as possible. Yes, they asked for a guide track, but that is to “guide” them for an idea, not the only notes and intonation they will do ! Ever hear of “selling the song” ??!!
The other problem is prima donna singers who think they deserve BIG MONEY for 30 seconds, or bigger for 240 seconds !!.. ummm a song is 3-5 minutes and you are not worth multi-hundreds in a first work with a producer !
This last guy I used advertised “top-shelf” vocals…first communication he sends is “do you want high quality” !!! WTF !!! No, I want shitty tracks, just like you sent that I paid your top price asked for !
Very frustrated with fiverr “singers”
