In Nashville, we call them “bgv’s” which is short for “background vocals”. Two of the best were in Wednesday, Jim and Jaime Riley, pics below, adding bgv’s to three Swanson songs, the final touch before moving the songs on to mixing.
While they can be somewhat costly, bgv’s can really make a song special; consider putting them in the budget of your next demo, single or album.
The songwriter this session was for, Joe Finley texted session producer/engineer, Bill Watson: “Hey Bill, heading to the airport and just listened to the rough mixes with background vocals, needless to say I’m in tears!! # Grammy”
We can add bgv’s to projects recorded wholly at Nashville Trax or even add them to songs in progress at other studios.
