Yes, you are right. I wrote it wrong. The vocals are not distant but with an echo. All is good when it is sound guy intention. If you prefer more dry sound, you can try cardiods or hypercardiods pattern.  (And if you are too close to the ceiling, you can try to move to a greater distance from ceiling to avoid unwanted reflections)

You can balance stereo image in Audacity. Try to add volume of  1-3 db to one channel. Or try to delay one channel by 0.1 - 1 millisecond. And listen how the image is shifting. The best is to listen via headphones. Gutbucket explained it in details here-

Topic drift, but I just tried the one-channel-delay trick for the first time (on a recording with similar levels for each channel but a really-annoying perceived skew of volume to one channel), and it is an absolute miracle. I may need to go revisit a bunch of past recordings now...
