Jodie Jones Endorses Artist Series® Microphones

Acclaimed UK acoustic singer-songwriter Jodie Jones is endorsing Audio-Technica’s new Artist Series® microphones.


Leeds 05-16-2007 Acclaimed UK acoustic singer-songwriter Jodie Jones is endorsing Audio-Technica’s new Artist Series® microphones. The 21 year old from Devon, who released her debut album, All Dressed Up, in 2005, is the first artist to endorse the Artist Series. Having supported the likes of Van Morrison, Supergrass, Roy Wood and Midge Ure, and appearing on BBC TV in the ensuing months, Jodie is now back in the studio with guitarist and percussionist husband Joff Alexander-Frye, she is recording new songs for her follow up release exclusively with Artist Series mics.

Jodie, who plays acoustic guitar and piano, has especially chosen the ATM710 condenser for her vocals, both live and in the studio. “We are using the ATM710s for all the vocals, both for me and Joff. I love what the mic does for the sound of my voice, the amazing clarity that it gives me. The leap in sound quality with the Artist Series is so dramatic that we are going to re-record the vocals we have already put down with the new mics.”

Jodie and Joff’s are recording with a range of the Artist Series mics, among them the innovative, side firing ATM450 small-diaphragm condenser, and the ATM250DE – featuring Audio-Technica’s famous dynamic / condenser dual-element configuration – for guitars. Other Artist Series mics in the studio with Jodie include the ATM610 and ATM650 dymanic mics, and these along with the ATM710 are used on percussion.

The new songs, like the first album, are being produced by Jodie’s father, in her parents’ private studio – both Jodie’s parents are singer-songwriters in their own right – “My dad loves the Audio-Technica mics, especially the ATM710,” she enthuses.

The new Artist Series provides a comprehensive range of high quality, professional microphones for live and studio production applications. These include dynamic and condenser vocal and instrument models, as well as head worn and clip-on microphones. Outstanding performance, build quality, and engineering distinguish the series.
