Should read "a crush." Darn it. Just curious on what others are experiencing..... Locally, in my part of the Midwest, where gigs are without a doubt becoming ever more scarce, there is an obvious rush to find young female singers to front cover bands. I have no idea if the same thing is happening with original acts, as there is next to zero market for original music. Sucks, but there it is...... The reasons are fairly self explanatory: the girl fronted bands are, for the most part, a much better draw than the male fronted bands. They are pulling the crowds, the bars are turning a profit, and the bands like my own are finding it harder and harder to find steady work. Not complaining, just stating fact. A friend's cover band has been using a very good young, attractive female vocalist for about a year, and are doing well. Before snagging her, not so much. They are much more well received now, although there is some occasional chatter about the "geezer band with the hottie for a singer." We are considering following suit, if we can find someone. I have worked with female singers in the past. Some were good experiences, a couple were NOT. Thoughts, anyone?
