Featured Track on Wake Up Your Ears
Chances are you haven’t heard a recording where the singer’s voice wasn’t dynamically compressed, but Ms. Rubarth’s voice is 100% au naturel on “Good Mystery.” Her guitar and the accompanying violin, cello and percussion were also unencumbered by any form of processing using the Chesky Records Binaural+ recording technique, fit for both speakers and headphones. You’ll fall in love with Rubarth’s genuine, unique voice and musical style.
Check out our video of her performance at the NY Audio Show 2013 here.
