Background vocals are such an important part of modern arranging, but most of the time we just stick with the same approach, which is a shame 'cause there's some really interesting things you can do with a background singer if you're just willing to think outside the box. That's why I wanted to put together some of my favorite approaches to background vocal writing, and I've brought in Tim Blais from A Capella Science to help bring them to life. Maybe you're already using some of these techniques, but hopefully you'll find something new to try out next time you're writing a background part!
