Urban has the best idea, if the majority of the songs are his then just leave. Form your own band with a better singer.

my suggestion, find a new singer, and tell the old singer that he sucks.

if he really is that bad, he's not going to get any better unless someone tells him that he sounds bad. he'll just go on thinking he's great. thats how my old bands singer was. we just all ditched the band. and now we're reforming. we dont have a singer or drummer any more....but..hey...everything comes around.

Tell the old singer to learn to play keyboard.

Then find a new singer.

Get pro tools and run auto tune on his voice. It's cheating but it works. HaHa
