DPA Microphones Brings ‘Technicolour’ To Sam Lee’s Voice

Folk singer Sam Lee finally ended his long search for the right vocal microphone when he discovered DPA Microphones d:facto™ Vocal Microphone.

Lee, who was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize in 2012, was introduced to the DPA d:facto Vocal Microphone by Front of House sound engineer Jamie Orchard-Lisle.

“Finding a microphone to match my voice has never been easy,” Lee says: “After successive attempts to find the gear to capture the full colour and dynamics of my voice, I’ve always been left feeling a bit cold. It wasn’t until Jamie introduced me to the DPA d:facto Vocal Microphone that the full Technicolor really left the stage and illustrated the depth and clarity of my range.”

Multi-talented Lee is not just a folk singer – he also teaches and hosts radio and TV programmes. His debut album Ground of its Own is an unusual folk collection comprising traditional songs he learned first-hand from the Roma, Gypsy, Scottish and Irish traveller communities. These songs have been passed from generation to generation, over centuries, and Lee scoured the UK to find them.

Earlier this year, Lee took part in an international showcase at the WOMEX Convention in Thessaloniki, Greece, and it was here that Jamie Orchard-Lisle first introduced the DPA d:facto Vocal Microphone, which was supplied by DPA’s UK distributor Sound Network.

Orchard-Lisle, who is a long term fan of DPA’s microphone technology, says: “DPA’s products always deliver fantastic results and, having tried the d:facto Vocal Microphone with other singers, I felt it would be perfect for Sam. The d:facto really brings out the dynamics of his voice and his on-stage performances now sound absolutely amazing. Since WOMEX, we’ve used the d:facto Vocal Microphone for all of his recent gigs and I’ve been getting compliments about his vocal sound from other sound engineers. The d:facto is a remarkable microphone and I can’t sing its praises highly enough.”

Sam Lee adds: “WOMEX is the largest annual world music conference, and one that is attended by world music aficionados and sound snobs. Thanks to the DPA d:facto Vocal Microphone, the reaction to my performance was unanimously positive and the bookings poured in. I am now so impressed with this microphone that I hope never to leave home without one. Any self-valuing singer should really be questioning whether they can afford not to carry one, in my opinion.”
