Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band Wins GRAMMY® Award With Help Of Royer Labs Microphones

April 27th, 2015 | Posted in News, newsletter

At February’s 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band’s 2014 effort, Life in the Bubble, captured the Best Large Ensemble award. With songs like the hard-driving “Why We Can’t Have Nice Things,” the lively Latin-tinged “Garaje Gato,” and their freewheeling take on the classic “On Green Dolphin Street,” one can easily appreciate the talent and effort that went into this endeavor. On the production side of things, the tools used to capture those performances play a significant role in the finished product. That’s why microphones from the catalog of Burbank, CA-based Royer Labs and its sibling company, Mojave Audio, were deployed.

With four GRAMMY® Awards and three Emmy Awards to his credit, composer and band leader Gordon Goodwin has composed and conducted for a host of artists, including Ray Charles, Christina Aguilera, Sarah Vaughan, and Mel Torme to name but a few. Similarly, his film scoring endeavors can be heard on dozens of films, including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, National Treasure, The Incredibles, and Armageddon. Working with seven time GRAMMY Award winning producer / engineer Gregg Field—whose recognitions include “Producer of the Year” and “Best Engineered Recording”—these two music industry icons really hit the ball out of the park with their combined efforts on Life in the Bubble. They discussed how much they rely on Royer Labs microphones. More »
