STEVE WINWOOD ENDORSES NEUMANN/SENNHEISER

steve_winwood.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT: Steve Winwood continues to enjoy as prolific and collaborative a career as any musician could hope for. Over the past forty years, Winwood has worked with blues legends Muddy Waters, B.B.

Together, his collaborations and celebrated solo efforts have the now sixty year-old Winwood touring and recording as vigorously as ever! Winwood relies on a Neumann KMS 105 vocal microphone for both his live engagements and his studio work, and he and his band upgraded their wireless personal monitoring systems to Sennheiser ew 300 IEM G2s for their recent tour of North America with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. more

SENNHEISER’S 935 MIC SUCCESS STORY CONTINUES WITH JAKE OWEN

jake_owen.JPGNASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – OCTOBER 2008: As one country music’s fastest rising stars, Jake Owen’s debut album has already earned him three consecutive hit singles, a performance at the 2008 CRS New Faces Show, and an Academy of Country Music nomination for “Top New Male Vocalist.” All this, and Owen only learned to play the guitar and write songs a few short years ago!

Although the prophets… er, critics have foretold of even grander success for Owen – who is preparing to release his sophomore album on RCA Records – the native Floridian has already scored the opening slot in tours headlined by heavyweights Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town, and Sugarland. more

Owner and operator Dwight Baker, an accomplished songwriter (Kelly Clarkson) and drummer (Heart, Enrique Iglesias) in addition to a seasoned sound engineer, recently replaced Matchbox’s vintage API 2244 with a brand new 32-channel API 1608 small-frame console so that his studio would still have the “API sound” that he loves so much. more
