Fast-rising folk artist and FATEA Magazine's "Female Vocalist of the Year 2013" Ange Hardy has recently launched her brand new album "The Lament of The Black Sheep" in Minehead, after a surge of reviews hailing the album as one of the greatest the genre has seen in recent years.
Held at The Regal Theatre in the Somerset coastal town, Joel Nichols from Revolution Audio was asked to engineer Front of House for the event. The in-house PA system and Yamaha LS9 digital console were used, however Revolution Audio provided numerous items for use on stage, notably a DPA d:facto II for Ange's vocals, as well as a wireless Sennheiser E865, and large quantities of BSS DI Boxes. Supporting Ange were Steve Pledger, Lukas Drinkwater, Jemima Farey and Luke Jackson.
The evening featured both solo performances from Ange as well as - for the first time - a live band accompanying her. Combined with Ange's creative use of loop pedals for vocal harmonys, The Regal was filled with a full, warm and brilliantly detailed sound that attracted numerous compliments from artists and audience members alike. Especially popular was the DPA d:facto microphone we provided - certainly an upgrade from Ange's regular Shure SM58!
