Dig My Rig


On May 24, 2012, I set out on a musical and physical challenge in a bid to inspire the performances for my new album, Just for the Record. While cycling 2,000 miles to the furthest four points of mainland Britain with a mobile recording rig on my bike, I discovered locations along the way that provided inspiration for my songs and vocal takes.

My “bikerphone” rig includes an M-Audio Fast Track Pro, MacBook Pro i7 with Avid Pro Tools 9 and Apple Logic 9, a pair of Audio-Technica AT4033a mics, Beyerdynamic DT 250 headphones, Contour roam camera, Emerald x7 indestructible carbon-fiber guitar, a Nady bullet mic, and as much duct tape as I can carry. The BBC said, “it was the wettest June on record.” How did they know I was recording?
