Musician, singer-songwriter Ben Webb is looking for vocalists for a new project.
Ben writes: “Basically I’m looking for both a Female and Male vocalist for a Dance/Electro track I’m producing. It’s going to be aimed for placements in the gaming industry as well as possible film/tv. Vocal style, along the lines of Jessie J, Katy B, Magnetic Man, Pitbull and Far East Movement.
Another track, I’m looking for a Male vocalist, in the style of David Gray, The Script, Matt Kearny. It’s an Adult Contemporary, singer-songwriter track aimed for Film and TV placement. Note this one is rather urgent, as I already have projects that I can pitch to, but don’t yet have the master!There will be a chance of huge exposure for the artists chosen for recording!
Ask people to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to past recorded projects so I can hear how they sound recorded.”
