    One technique that I've been using the last few years to get more consistent presence in a mix:
    have 1 untreated version of the vocal in the mix.
    Send that to a bus with a ton of compress. Squash it flat and boring.

    Mix between those two versions throughout the song.

    Track twice - once for the soft stuff, once for the loud stuff (with the gains adjusted accordingly) then comp the parts together.
