Los Angeles, CAâ€“â€“Kevin â€œBrandinoâ€? Brandon is already a session legend in Los Angeles based on his multifaceted bass playing withâ€”just to name a few in a list of artists that goes one foreverâ€“â€“Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Mary J. Blige, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce and Outkast.
More recently heâ€™s been involved as a producer on several projects including Robby Kriegerâ€™s new solo disc, Singularity on Oglio Records.
A long time friend and collaborator with the former Doors guitarist who composed the bandâ€™s best known songs including â€œLight My Fire,â€? â€œLove Me Two Times,â€? â€œTouch Me,â€? and â€œLove Her Madly,â€? Brandino chose his favorite CAD mics for two tracks on the new album, â€œEvent Horizonâ€? and â€œRussian Caravan.â€?
Kevin played bass and produced â€œEvent Horizon,â€? opting for a stereo pair of CAD Trion 8000 Multi-Pattern tube condenser mics on his acoustic bass to get, in his words, â€œThat
â€˜booty bassâ€™ sound which is full-sounding, big bodied, warm and natural. The sound Iâ€™m known for in town.â€? He also used the Trion 8000 for Robbyâ€™s classical acoustic guitar parts.
In addition to CAD Percussion Microphone Packs on Steve Stephensâ€™ drums, Brandino also used his bass setup on the other track, â€œRussian Caravan,â€? along with CAD M179 variable pattern condenser mics and a Trion 7000 ribbon mic for the Brandon Horn Section, which included Thomas Stones III on flute, Albert Wing on tenor sax and Sal Carrachio on trumpet, and Eric Jorgensen on trombone.
A long time fan of CAD Audio, Brandino sums up his feelings about the mics by saying, â€œI can always depend on CAD to sound really great in most any recording or live situation. Theyâ€™re my go-to mics.â€?
