Looking for Lyricist/Songwriter to write and record jazz verses.

Hire a Session Vocalist (On Spec)

On Spec

Project Description


I am looking for a lyricist/singer to write and record verses to my jazz backing track.

I have recorded myself the backing track but I am looking for the lead part to be recorded before I can move on to the next stages.

All I need is someone - male or female performer - to write the lyrics to my melody (cf. enclosed WAV file) and have it recorded before sending it back to me.
Ideally I would also like harmony parts to be part of it to make the recording fuller.

The WAV file enclosed (94 BPM) has got one blank bar, 12 bars of the melody played on guitar and then 36 bars for the singer to write 3 verses on top on that following the melody from the first bars. There is no need for the lead vocal to follow exactly the guitar melody though.

As far as the lyrical content is concerned, you should feel free to express yourself while staying in line with the genre.

See the enclosed YouTube links for reference, most guideline for the singing style. I am happy to send the multitrack if you need it.

Don't be afraid to contact me, this is not a final stage of the project (so is the arrangement, the guide track has been laid out that way to facilitate the recording) and I wouldn't mind having to go back to you to polish the lead.

Thanks, any concern feel me to contact me.
