Jake E Lee Looks to Recruit New Singer

Jake E Lee Looks to Recruit New Singer -

After nearly a decade out, former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E Lee has started work on a new album and he is recruiting a singer to front the project, reports BraveWords.

The new record, which is the first from the Badlands founder since 1998's 'Dusk' LP, will feature a selection of rock & metal names with guest appearances by Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Paul Di'Anno (Iron Maiden), Maria Brink (In This Moment), with many other big names looking to take part.

Jake has now launched a worldwide search for the new vocalist who will perform on at least one track on the new album and will also join him on tour.

Criteria: Must be capable of singing a couple of Ozzy Osbourne and Badlands songs, plus tracks from Lee's new album while still having a strong enough identity to be able carry the band into the future, as Jake will head straight back into the studio after the touring to begin a new album with the new band.

What to do: Send an email to containing an MP3, or a link to an MP3 of yourself singing a Ozzy Osbourne or Badlands song. Then submit one other song or video of your choosing that you feel best represents who you are as an artist. Listen to Badlands' 'High Wire' to see the range required for this gig. Only those vocalists that really fit what Lee is looking for will be contacted with further instructions.
