I do everything I can to try and make them feel safe and comfortable. Safe enough to fail, and comfortable enough to reach deep and succeed.
Sounds like corporate BS, but it's the most important thing..
Richard Dodd told be a good trick once.. make sure you always set the lead vocalist' mic a bit too low.. that way you have to come out and raise it up to them.. makes them feel "bigger" that you thought they were shorter..
And, never stop tape (PT..) while a female (or male in fact) vocalist is singing, as in mid sentence. No one like to hear themselves suddenly out in space...
