Behind The Mic | How We Recorded Lucy's Performance
In a completely new challenge, Shure Audio Engineer, Jack Drury, talks you through how we recorded the live performance of ‘Polly’s Song’ by Lucy May Walker in the open-air surroundings of Alexandra Palace. With an acoustic guitar, a keyboard and Lucy’s vocals in the mix, we captured the performance using a special configuration to eliminate any unwanted noise from the outdoors. Watch the video now:
Lucy May Walker is a folk-pop singer-songwriter from London. Her debut EP, Heartbreak Songs, was released in 2020 and reached no. 3 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart, receiving numerous plays on BBC Introducing.
