Sean Rowe: The Long Black Veil
Put simply, Sean Rowe is one of my favorite songwriters ever. His music and that voice are as honest and unfiltered as they come. "The Long Black Veil" may have been written by Lefty Frizzell, but most people, myself included, know Johnny Cash's version. Sean's take on this classic holds its own quite nicely against The Man in Black's and listening to him record it over the headphones is a memory I hope this flaky brain holds onto.
For this session, we used Peluso Microphone Lab's 2247se on his vocal because a classic voice deserves a classic microphone! Sean's guitar sound is a blend of acoustic and amp'd so we used Peluso's P-84 to capture the acoustic and placed their tube-ribbon TR-14 on his Fender Princeton amp.
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.
