Advice on mix

Working on another song and using the same template I used on the song below. Looking for suggestions on where I can make some improvements. Thanks!

You have a beautiful voice, the only thing I would suggest is to handle the sibilance. For me it's distracting, some may disagree, but when you find the right mic/preamp for a vocal it can be quite powerful. Every little breath, mouth sound, becomes a nuance.

Sometimes the sibilance simply arises from too much EQ and compression that is a result of trying to achieve that modern vocal sound. Regardless, your talent still shines on this performance.

Beautifully recorded and a fantastic vocal performance. Like @ Theo Desktop there is a little too much sibilance - although after repeated listenings I'm not sure if it's fits the track or not.

I would try to edit or smooth the hotspots over.

Thanks for the advice and I’ll see if I can reduce sibilance somehow. It would be cool to try out different mics/preamps to compare at some point.
