Behind The Mic | How We Recorded Jake Isaac’s Performance
Shure Audio Engineer, Jack Drury, goes behind the scenes at the Signature Brew Venue in East London to talk you through the microphones we used to capture the extraordinary performance of ‘Brother’ by Jake Isaac. With a relatively simple instrument set up, the vocals shine through with the SM7B capturing the powerful, soulful sounds, all recorded beneath a noisy train line.
Born in South London, Jake is a multi-talented singer-songwriter, pianist, drummer and guitarist. With a successful career in marketing, Jake began turning his creativity after hours toward songwriting and becoming a session musician supporting big name artists. After a while, he began writing his own songs and was eventually signed to the iconic Sir Elton John’s Rocket Music, where he has gone on to work with and support artists such as Ella Eyre, Paloma Faith and Elton John himself. Jake Isaac’s latest album, ‘Honesty’, is out now.
