Yellow Couch Sessions @ Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival
Ruby Amanfu: Taking Memories
We were so excited when we got word that Ruby Amanfu was going to be stopping by our pop-up Yellow Couch Studio at the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival. She was performing on the last day of the festival, which happened to be the same day as news broke of the tragic shootings in Orlando. We were all feeling a little melancholy and Ruby selected this song as a result. It's a beautifully understated track and I'm so grateful that she shared it with us.
We used Peluso's P-12 to capture Ruby's vocals and placed their tube-ribbon TR-14 on the Vox AC15 (which was lovingly provided by our friends at Empire Music. In my opinion, these mics team up to present a stark, simple and beautiful song in a really fitting, unfussed-with way.
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 awesome partner, Matt Dayak.
