Lead Singer #2 (Iori) for teen girl J-pop / Metal group in upcoming Visual Novel

Project structure:

This is a visual novel about a band, so the artist and music are the focal point of the story. The game production is already finished and now the team needs music that gets people excited about it! There is also the opportunity to create a full album worth of songs based on the strength of material and success of the project. Opportunity for future co-writes is also possible and to be determined. Approach this project like being signed in a band to a record label debut.

There are two competing singers in this story, Iori and Miyuki. They are intended to be comparable strength, and players may have their favorite based on personal taste. Each singer has their own songs and they don’t perform the same material. The singer’s voices also need to be distinguishable between each other. (Miyuki’s first song is already finished.)

Skill set:

  • Sing commercial level teen oriented high energy j-pop / metal / pop vocals. (Songs are in English.)
  • Record vocals cleanly and reliably without technical or logistical issues. (Quality home recording setup is fine.)
  • Be the front-person for this project on social media and promotional materials.
  • Communicate professionally and with reasonable timeliness via email, Skype or Discord.
  • Experience editing / tuning vocals (Melodyne, etc.) a plus.

Influencing / competing artists:

  • BabyMetal (Resistance)
  • Orianthi (According To You)
  • Younha (Houki Boshi)

Personality:

Iori comes from a music industry insider family and she’s had the advantage of being exposed to the inner workings and culture because of this. She is well-trained and confident, but also humble and pragmatic in her approach to performing and life. Early on she is a substitute singer for an unsigned metal band, then she becomes more of a pop oriented lead singer and eventually has a solo career.

Compensation:

Competitive up-front pay on a per-song basis. Details to be discussed based on individual circumstances.

Submission:

  • Please send vocal recordings via web links (preferred) or attachments.
  • Passion for anime, j-pop and games a huge plus!
