Re: Singers, style and voice

Well thought out Mac. I do agree that as a whole the singer AND the music is what's going to make or break it with me. There are a ton of female sings that can run their scales and hit octaves without breaking a sweat, but what about the music that is backing them up. I will give you a clear example: Christina Aguilera. Love her or hate her, she has got the vocal chops to back her  s h i t  up. But that's all she has in my eyes...and ears. The music that she churns out is horrid, vomit inducing tripe that sounds old the minute it comes out. Why? Because she is another victim to the "in-house" mentality of Music Corporations that rely on the same beats, producers and song writers and it sounds dated because they are going with what is "hot" at the moment.

I think if she were to go away for a year, write song after song on an acoustic guitar or piano with no outside help and then come back and record it live with just a couple of people she could produce something quite memorable. The problem is, she will always have an A&R Suit chirping in her ear, "if you want a hit song, you're gonna need this, this, this, this......" And so the cycle repeats itself.
