In a world of hardcore and metalcore bands, it seems increasingly hard to find a clean vocalist. I play in a Hardcore band/ funk/band so dont get me wrong i love the genres but trying to find a proper singing voice to compliment the harsher vocals is impossible. The ideal vocalist for us (and by "us" i mean my band Good Morning Tides) would be an Anthony Green/ Kurt Travis type singer. If you would all tell me what you think could benifit my bands music,or just want to put your own music up pleas do so. And if you know of a good clean vocalist please please please pass his vocals on over

My band: Good Morning Tides

Also if you're here to critique I welcome it but try to be productive with it, if you dont like the music let us know what we could do better

I thought this was going to be a thread looking for a band like that, and I would've suggested letlive. I don't personally know anyone who join help your band, though. Good luck finding someone.

I mean, idk what else you would call it. "Vocalist" can mean someone who screams, raps, sings, etc haha. Have to be more specific somehow!

someone who screams = screamer
someone who raps = rapper
someone who sings = singer

pretty elementary

I'm not saying people shouldn't use the term, that's up to them, It just irks me since there's already a pretty well established word for it.

the problem with your search is two things:
1. you guys already have an exact type of voice in mind that eliminates a lot of people who don't have that same type.
2. you are looking for a style of vocals that a lot of other bands have, which takes away from what could set you guys apart.

You really should just find someone who is an excellent singer who has an enjoyable voice, but also can carry that voice both in the studio and more importantly in a live show.

Thanks, the only thing that makes that difficult is our music scene is nothing but pop punk and metal here in good ol maryland

someone who sings = singer? would you hire a jazz vocalist for a punk band? would you hire a pop punk singer for an country band? Point being saying "singer" doesn't narrow it down anymore than "clean vocalist" we're looking for a specific style of singer, not just someone who can pick up a mic..

Didn't you also specify what genre you wanted to play? Wouldn't you have to do that regardless? Singer is a well accepted term that really needs no replacement, clean vocalist is a dumb term associated with an unoriginal scene.

As I said you can use whatever term you like, just pointing out there is a much better alternative and that I just don't like it.
