I play the bass and the mic, bass guitar and vocals?

I am the bass player and the vocalist.

Singer is a solo artist.

Maybe it has to do with the context of the sentence.  Here's some examples where one would be used over the other.  "Who did you get as a singer in your new band?" ,  "I play bass and do background vocals",  "Alright lads,  we've got the instrument tracks recorded,  let's put down the vocals."  Man,  the new singer in my band is a flaming *[email protected]^&*(_*!!!"

Who cares?  Look on credits of most albums and if it lists it, it will say "Vocalist" not singer or singist.

Welcome to he English language.

Vocalist has a Latin/old French origin, whereas Singer is Germanic.

Both correct. Vocalist has some traction as a singing descriptor in French music, including plainsong. But as voca is voice rather than speech it’s often used in French and Latin for sung word rather than spoken word.

You say potato and I say no ta.

Well I think that the discussion has ultimately gleaned that the person doing the singing is the singer , but then I knew that all along !

In our band, I play drums and the singer/vocalist plays percussion (claves, cowbell...) and vocalises the trombone solo for 'Beds are burning'. :lol:
