Why do my vocals sound bad?

What decibel should vocals be at?
What dB should vocals be recorded at? You should record vocals at an average of -18dB for 24-bit resolution. The loudest parts of the recording should peak at -10dB and be lowest at -24dB. This is to keep an even balance on the level of the vocals without distortion.
How loud should my vocals be in a mix?
Every vocal is different and every song is different as well. But generally speaking, lead vocal should be moderately loud or the loudest element next to your drums in your mix.
What should a singer avoid?
BAD: Caffeine and alcohol – these beverages are bad for singing as both caffeine and alcohol are diuretics, which leads to dehydration and therefore the constriction of the throat muscles. Tightness in the throat is not good for singing, as it disables the vocal folds from vibrating freely.
