Fresh off our highly sucessful Grammy Awards trip, I’m scanning over the month of February…plenty to keep me busy! See if you can keep up: Two days ago, I conducted a wonderful interview with country artist and Shure endorser Sara Evans.  I’ll be editing that.  She’s been a Shure Artist for over 10 years now. […]

The Grammys: Day 2, Day 3 And The Element Of Surprise

Okay, so I know I owe you a couple of blogs since we last spoke. Honestly, it’s been tough to find a quiet moment and the proper location to blog it up for you, the faithful Shure Mic Check Blog audience. The Staples Center is not the most conducive place to conduct any extensive computing […]

Music To New Year Resolution To…

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! It’s that time again, clean slate time! The time when it’s OK to forget about all the promises you didn’t keep the year before and re-promise them to yourself with the best intentions. It’s ok, I’m pretty sure the majority of the […]

Fantastic Scholastic 10: The Planning Phase

What happens when you get a bunch of student recording engineers in a room with a band and a road case full of Shure mics? Passion. Vision. Debates. Eye-rolling. Sleep deprivation. Laughter. Shenanigans. Don’t believe me? Well. I have proof. Video proof. I love hearing creative people think out loud, wrestling with the possibilities and […]
