If we’re going to talking about protecting our ears and hearing it might be a good idea to start with how our ears and sound interact. Sure most of us have heard the names of the parts in the ear during a biology class in High School, but how many of us pay attention to what our daily lives do to our ears and hearing. Here is a great old skool (AKA 1940’s) video on hearing and our ears. It’s about 10 min in length… oh and the “Chuckie” looking drawing of a boy at about 1:20 in is worth it!
Next time we’ll get more into how activities we do; concerts, yard work, ATV’s, etc effect our hearing and how fast we can start to have symptoms of hearing loss.
The Artist: Celtic Woman
The Event: North American Tour
The Gear: JH11 PRO
We had the amazing opportunity to hang for an evening with Celtic Woman while out on their North American Tour. This was such an amazing show on so, so many levels. The production is some of the best out there that we’ve seen! Their music and showmanship is second to none. If you ever get the chance to catch a show, we highly recommend it. If you think you’re not into that “style” of music, we think you’ll be surprised!
Their current album “Believe” is a beautiful collection of modern and classic masterpieces with a Celtic twist. For more information, check out their website.
Here is a video we put together from the interviews we got. We think they like us!
The Group: Karmin
Who: Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan
The Gear: JH16Pro
The Album: Hello
Never heard of Karmin? What, you live under a rock or something? The YouTube cover group sensation-turned EPIC recording artist Karmin are our Featured Artist of the Month for June.
To properly understand the buzz around these two, let’s go back to “where it all started” with a little cover they did of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” which has a measly 66 million views…. and counting! 😉
Yeah, not bad for a white-girl-born-in-small-town-NEBRASKA??!!
Nick and Amy met while students at the Berkley School of Music in Boston, MA. Both had their hand at working with some top level artists, but soon found out their real joy came from making music THEIR way and what a way it’s been! Their debut album “Hello” has garnered some major props from industry members, fellow artist and the public. They even performed on SNL and The Ellen Show this past Spring.
“A few months ago, we were sitting in our living room with a wooden box and a guitar just writing raw music, now we’re performing on Saturday Night Live and getting ready to release our debut album,” Amy marvels. Adds Nick: “I remember Amy’s dad once saying that the only CD he’d ever bought and run home from the store to listen to was by The Beatles. We want our music to have that effect on people. We want to shake things up.”
