Just need to spend some time on EQ's.

Vox can be too bright and close sometimes.
Vox is too loud and slightly lacking in a plate. Just needs a little ambiance to sit on, help it to all glue together.

Stereo image is too wide, unless your going for an effect, but personally I don't think its working atm.

Try and get the Ac. Bass and the drums locking together.
Add to LF to the bass too, its a little light for a bass instruments atm.

Try and pick up the brush snare more. This might not be possible depending on how much you recorded. But no harm in trying.

Anyway, the main thing to focus on is the vox. Shes got a great voice, its just too bright atm. Think smokey and husky warm character rather than hearing her chewing gum! lol

All the best man,

Keep going, it could sound really good, just needs some more time.
Just watch the distortion on the vox

I would agree about the stereo image being too wide. It kind of leaves the vox in the middle all alone. What i suggest is to bring in the stereo image a little, bring the level of the instruments closer to the vox (either by turning them up or the vox down), and the snare or drums altogether can probably be used to fill in a lot of the space!
