This thread is all about the backing vocalists in bands. Which one is your favorite and why? Mine would probably be Jen Ledger from Skillet because her voice adds a new dimension to their music. Maybe Mike Portney from Dream Theater because his voice harmonizes with the lead singer's very well. Now your turn.

P.S. i used the searchbar and didn't find anything

The Wilson Brothers. Any combination of Paul John and George. stevie Jackson & sarah Martin from Belle & Sebastian. David Crosby and Chris hillman of the Byrds. Pete Townshend and John Entwistle.

Somewhat of a lost Art outside of Indie music, along with harmony in general, for the last couple of decades or more.

hide and Taiji from X were pretty epic backup vocalists, sometimes I thought their voices were better than Toshi's.
Zero and Karyu from D'espairsRay have really good voices as well, perfect backup vocalists imo.
I also think Zacky, Syn and the Rev from A7X work well as backup vocalists, especially the Rev, his voice isn't that great but it just works.
I would also mention Marco Hietala, but he's becoming more of a lead vocalist now, but I love his harmonies with Tarja, not so much with Anette.

I think the best backup vocalist is The Beatles.
