It seems like the year flew by and we all know this time tomorrow, Santa Claus and Christmas decorations will be everywhere! Oh…the holiday season. Music can make […]

Natalie Grant unleashes a "Hurricane"

It’s no surprise when you hear Natalie’s voice for the first time why she’s won several Dove awards for Female Vocalist of the Year. She uses that “powerhouse” of a voice for good, spreading words of hope through her songs.  A lot of those songs are written & produced by her husband Bernie Herms. Natalie […]

Goodbye, Lou Reed

Musicians and fans were quick to eulogize the iconic Lou Reed this week in tweets, posts, and live shows. As they should. Lou’s force was undeniable. To honor him, I wanted to share his song, “Set the Twilight Reeling,” from 1996. The song feels like a audio pastiche of his earlier work, but is from […]

Luke Bryan & Florida Georgia Line conquer Nashville!

Five minutes! That’s how long it took for 2 shows with Shure Artists’ Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line to sell out in Nashville (that’s approximately 18,500 seats each night, BTW). Luke released his first album 6 years ago, now on his fourth.  Florida Georgia Line released their first full studio album just last year! […]

Ladies & Gentlemen… The National

It was 4 am on October 11, 2013 as I brushed my teeth, thinking about how this was all going to go down. In just a few hours I would be in Kansas City filming a day in the life of one of the biggest bands in the world. Less than a week ago, I […]

We’re getting closer and closer to awards season and the People’s Choice Awards just announced their nominee selections. They open it up to the public to vote for 5 of the choices with the top 5 in each category becoming the official nominations. I ran across this yesterday and was scrolling through the various categories […]

Why Do We Do This?

The past few weeks have been an absolute blur. Looking back on it now, I wonder if I may have missed anything and did I do it all the right way? When the dust settled, I had been to about eight shows and collected loads of interviews and still images along the way. I added […]

Recorded with all Shure Mics!

Don’t you just LOVE the sound of that headline? I love it when I hear it from an engineer or artist.  In this case, it was most recently from someone who is both! Cliff Goldmacher is and has been a great client of Shure for over 10 years now.  When I first met Cliff in Nashville, […]

New Music AND New Artists!

We all know that feeling…you don’t want to get out of bed, can’t seem to keep your eyes open, feel like you’re sleepwalking…it’s Wednesday. No longer the beginning of the week, but you can’t quite start looking forward to the weekend. It’s the classic hump day. Have you been dragging your feet all morning? Tried […]

Disney Sends Audio Signal Through Human Touch

At Shure, we talk a lot about the audio signal path when we refer to sound’s journey from microphone to mixer to P.A. system. But we were blown away by a recent Disney Research Technology project called “Ishin-Den-Shin” which transmits an audio signal, in part, through the human body. The project’s audio chain includes a modified Shure […]

Meet Our New Endorser HAIM!

This summer as an intern, it was under my job description to find a band or artist I thought was a good fit with Shure and sign them as an endorser. I was super excited for this opportunity leading up to the summer, but as summer came around I found myself in a musical lull. […]

The Music Moments of TV & Film

Music in film, television, and advertising is changing the way people connect to these visual images. Music has the power to spark emotions in people that they wouldn’t feel otherwise just looking at the images. Music can make us feel sad, happy, guilty, excited, and just about every other emotion in the book. Nelson showed […]
