Re: Good Backing Vocals
      13/02/13 09:21 AM
In my experience the secret of good backing vocals is good vocal technique. In other words when singing backing the technique is different to when signing lead. Not only should the singers not project in the same way, but articulation needs to be altered so that consonants are less hard, the ends of words are more 'rounded' and the whole sound is smoother.

Do an internet search for 'backing vocal technique' and you should find some good stuff.
