Vocal production of Americana album

The vocals production quality on this album are excellent. Can you offer advice on how to mix vocals like this? In particular the sibilance and chorusing/DTing, it's so clear and cutting, thanks.

I get most the sound in the recording. I used a Neumann M49 with a Summit compressor. I mix at a moderate level (85dbSPL) to place the vocals in the track. I did use EFX in the mix.

Thanks. How do you calibrate your SPL levels, via K-system or something else?

Sorry I don't think I get it.. you mean (while mixing) the vocal track peaks at 85dB SPL, or is that the SPL at some level on a VU meter?

I use an SPL meter to listen to the whole tracks's volume. The meter sits on the board and I use one in my iPhone (SPL App).As far as the Eventide Harmonizer 3000 effect I used I chorus/flange
panned left and right (just slightly)
