I met Alicia when I was running sound for a friend’s birthday party at a local venue here in Old Hickory. One of my favorite things about running live sound is the chance to get out in the music-rich community that is Nashville and meet talented artists. In my years as a recording engineer and videographer I’ve found that it’s these types of personal connections that typically lead to the most meaningful working relationship I get to have.
Not only was this filmed with just one camera and recorded with just 1 microphone, but we ended up going with Alicia’s FIRST TAKE. Sometime’s there’s just something magical about that initial performance that can’t be beat, as was the clear case here. Since we made this video, I’ve gotten to check out Alicia’s newest release, “Letters from the Edge,” and can honestly say I’ve become a fan. You can check her out for yourself on her website at aliciamichilli.com.
