I knew there was a reason I did not do monitors, in honesty had the same issue with the singer in the band I have been doing for 30 odd years, always been a 58 and a pair of wedges that would be screaming and still not loud enough, to the point where I would not need his vocal in FOH. The answer for us was change the 58 for something else and get the vocalist to go with “in ears” gave him no choice really, in a polite way of course.
It has pretty much worked, he now has as much of himself as he wants, his wedges do not annoy everyone else and I get his microphone not microphone and 103dB of wedges, only thing left to do is get him a little closer to his mic so the gain of the headlamp can come down.
