"A Lifetime of Love" - Seeking female vocalist to sing this

Recommended Posts

Once again, I wrote this song specifically for a friend of mine who is a pretty decent female vocalist.  Unfortunately she had to back out for personal reasons.
So I have this song, with my scratch (scratchy) vocals, just sitting there waiting for a talented vocalist to do it justice.
I tried using Bandlab as a collaboration tool, but female rock/pop vocalists are in very short supply in that group.
So if you know of a decent female vocalist willing to work with me on this song, please let me know.    THANKS!

Right of the bat, the percussion, the B3; brilliant!
Now the bad news, I can't squeeze hard enough to help ya; nor do I have a first rate vocalist for you.
Sorry, cool tune though; some one will come along.
Small niggle, the guitar solo is a bit "thin" sounding; needs some, well you know, that part you squeeze...

I can melodyne pitch up my Tom Waits impersonation if you like.  ?   :)

Do you live/work in NYC? If so, I'm jealous. And if so, you've got more of a line on female vocs than me. Again :)

 

It's got a nice groove! Good luck with bringing it home . . .

cheers,

-Tom

Nice song.
Dig the groove.

I f you want to send me the backing track and a copy of the lyrics I'll send you a recording with a  female vocalist maybe you could use.
I know two over here in Norway who would fit that gender.

All the best with this one.

Thanks Gary, I appreciate it.  You can download the wav files of both the song with temp vocals, and without any vocals here:

If you can find anyone to lay down vocals for me, I'd appreciate it if they could record the vocal (and backing) tracks on separate tracks from the music.

Here are the lyrics and the timings for the vocals:

“A Lifetime of Love In My Heart”   LYRICS and TIMING SHEET

INTRO                                                                        0:00 – 0:16

VERSE:
I got that feeling deep in my heart                    0:16 - 0:32
Whenever I think of you
Even though we’ve been years apart
It’s that feeling I know to be true

PRECHORUS:    -                              0:32 – 0:48
Every time I hear your name  
Or see your face in my mind
It fans that burning flame
In my heart all the time

CHORUS:                                                                  0:48 – 1:05
You give me – A lifetime of love in my heart
You give me – A lifetime of love in my heart

 

VERSE:                                                                       1:05 – 1:21
Oh I know we both have moved on
Living our separate lives
But the love we shared isn’t all gone
I can’t forget no matter how I tried.

PRECHORUS:                                                           1:21 – 1:37
So much love, so long ago
Enough to last a lifetime
I know you wish it wasn’t so
Well baby so do I

CHORUS:                                                                  1:37 – 1:53
You give me – A lifetime of love in my heart
You give me – A lifetime of love in my heart

BRIDGE:                                                                    1:53 – 2:10
I know I carry a torch
One that won’t go out
Time passes more and more
But the love never fades out.

SOLO                                                                         2:10 – 2:42

 

Chorus (2X)                                                              2:42 – 3:15
You give me – A lifetime of love in my heart
You give me – A lifetime of love in my heart

Ooh Yeah – A lifetime of love in my heart
Ooh Yeah – A lifetime of love in my heart

 

SOLO                                                                         3:15 – 3:47

Outtro                                                                       3:47 – 4:08 (out)
[Improvise chorus]

Thanks...
Ill get back to you when they next visit the studio.

Thanks, I really appreciate it.
And they can feel free to mess around with the melody line, add harmony parts, or whatever they want.  My vocals are just a rough sketch, mostly to get the timing right.
