Is there an easy way to find a singer? I have all the other pieces (Ironically I found a bassist first). But finding a singer is eluding me.
Ideas?

I'd just post all over town, and check craigslist or any other wanted sites. I live in a rural area where musicians looking to jam or join a band are exceedingly rare, yet somehow I constantly see notices posted for singers that want to join a band.

Granted you'll have to wade through a lot of crap to find a good one, most even well trained singers can't get a good rock sound.

Goodluck!

Y'know, that's actualy a pretty good idea.
Think about it, a pub, filled with wannabe singers, most of who would give anything to sing in a real band, all the equipment you'll ever need to audition them, plus a bar.

That IS a good idea. Also, and this might not be much of a help short-term, but just as often as not, players are found through networking. Get out there and get to know people in bands. Establish yourself and your band as competent, professional, and down-to-earth. There are singers out there - the question is whether they can be persuaded to sing for you. Have a package, get yourself known in musician circles and sell yourself.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

Hire a kariokie machine and have a party. Invite all your friends and get 'em all messing about on the mic.
You'll have all sorts of people singing who have never even attempted to sing before, but out of crowds of people like this, a gem can occasionaly be found. If you hear something you like, you may have found your singer, if not, hell, you still had a great party.

School choir? They can all sing to some degree. It's just a question of whether anyone there is the right person for your job.

Don't discount them because they're choir people. A good singer is a good singer. If they can do choral stuff, they can do pretty much any genre except scream-o and that kind of thing. In fact, they'll probably *refuse* to do that kind of thing.

Another good point.

I was in the school choir, as well as the local church choir, nothing to do with religion, I just liked to sing when I was a kid.
They both gave me a pretty good grounding in understanding breathing, projection and harmonies.
