What are you not sure about your mix ? What you are not sure about is usually what is problematic...

I will let you know what I think the problems are afterwards.

If you have the waves v-comp slap that on it..if you UAD you can try the UAD precision limiter...gentle acoustic setting something similar. If you have the new UAD shadow hills comp that can help give some heft and eveness.

Ok as far as I am concerned, you might have highpassed your vocals too sharply... and/or boosted the high frequencies a bit too much..

Have some kind of high freq buildup...

It is fighting for space with your brass, a bit of your snare, the bell (or it's delay) and a few synths...
If you highpass a little less your vocals, it might bring them a little more forward. (but then again, depends how much space you have in the lower part of the spectrum)

I would say that you were 90% there.. it's just that you have a lot of things going in that track (which is quite nice btw). .

I would grab an equalizer and tweak the mids until you get a tighter balance, also try a de-esser technique for presence control. maybe that helps, don't need to compress things that much to make em sit right.

If you can't get a de-esser to work in the 1.7k to 4 k area...then do a side chain de-esser thing...over emphasizing that area in duplicated track going to the sidechain bus.

hope that helps. Good luck
