You could also try a de-esser vst plug in if the Eq-ing dont sort it.
Antress modern do one within the free pack.

it's importnat, if you have a sibilant singer to choose carefully your mic, where in the room you record and always use a pop filter, especially important when the singer is sibilant (essy)

You can shape the tone of the recording with E.Q. / compression but it's best to use subtractive E.Q. (take things away) then compress and then se an eq to sweeten the sound if needed.

Practice getting the sound as right as possible before you even press record and it'll save you literally hours and a lot of stress afterwards.
