    Part of the quality issue is the recording process and the other is mixing.

    Fist what microphone are you using? Sounds low quality so that can be part of the issue. Also recording close to peak levels sounds bad/distorted at times. Try recording at -10-18 db so you have room to mix.

    Mixing you need to do reductive EQ (take out that low end muddy frequency range) then compress for some smoothing of the dynamic range. Lastly put on some additive EQ (3k to 10k small 1-3db boost) this will open up the vocals and add pretense.

    Reverb is optional and can make the vocals sound really nice.

    Here is one of my recent clients recording in my studio. I mixed and mastered the audio as well so check it out and listen to my results.
