“Born all in the dark wormy earth, cold specks of fire, evil, lights shining in the darkness.” This is the James Joyce line from which new Shure artist endorser Cold Specks drew her name. Get to know her music in this post.

Great Day To Welcome Morning Parade

Good morning. I noticed today that the weather is beginning to change again. It’s getting colder, the evenings come sooner and the clouds seem to linger a little longer. The weather can sure alter one’s mood. It’s ok though. The cold crisp air carries the warming smell of the changing colors of autumn, which marks […]

The LAMC Celebrates Its Quinceañera

It’s a right of passage for almost every 15-year-old girl of Hispanic heritage. A quinceañera is typically a huge fiesta which celebrates a young girl’s transition from childhood to womanhood and presents her to the community as young adult. The celebration highlights God, family, and community, and typically includes plenty of music, food, and a […]

Now Playing – Glass Animals – ZABA

Due to the fact that I spend many hours of my day listening to music, most of my friends send me emails or texts asking me for new music to update their playlists and music players. So, for this post, I decided to share some of the fresh new music that has been on heavy […]

Operated by the Product Development Division, Shure associates use it daily to test and evaluate microphones, critical listening, recording, photo shoots, and even band rehearsals.

SM58 – A Haiku

The news of Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s death yesterday saddened me. We lost one of the most creative human beings of our time. He enchanted us with his magical realism that combined everyday fiction with the most incredible and improbable characters and narrative which hypnotized you with every word. He also had […]

Nelson’s Do’s and Dont’s at Concerts

Because of my job doing Artist Relations for Shure I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing some pretty amazing shows. I’ve also had the opportunity to catch some pretty bad ones. Not that I’m complaining… It might be that the band has an off night for whatever reason and they don’t sound as good as you […]

RAC at Lincoln Hall 3/31/14

You’re either a fan of remixes or you’re not. I get it, I’ve heard pretty bad ones myself. But as a former DJ, I do love a good remix when properly executed. Especially when it’s already a great song people love but it’s presented to you in a different way. Some remixes can barely be […]

Juno Award Nominees Highlight – Single of the Year

Usually before a new album is released, artists and their record labels release what they call the album’s single. Singles are typically the album’s best song or songs, which are chosen to be released prior to the album’s official release for promotional purposes.
