Yellow Couch Sessions @ Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival
Gena y Pena: Como Fue (Composer: Ernesto Duarte Brito)
This is maybe my favorite thing about doing this series - hitting record and hearing a song that I've never heard before and being utterly gobsmacked by it. Such was the case with Gena y Pena, who performed on the main stage at the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival. Every element is beautiful on its own and when they all team up, you have yourself one spectacular song.
These arts fest sessions go down pretty quickly, so I'm not always able to get everyone's name. For Gena, who is singing lead, we used Peluso's P-12. I placed a P-49 on the bass amp and used the P-87 in a figure 8 pattern to capture the voice and congas. Finally, we used the P-28 on the guitar.
All audio for Yellow Couch Sessions is recorded and mixed by Steven Foxbury of Yellow Couch Studio. Video for this session was shot and edited by Matt Dayak.
