Andrew Hale - Focal - Sade - new album...
About a year ago, over lunch with old friend, Sade pianist, Andrew Hale, the subject of studio gear came up, in particular, reverb and monitors. To cut a long story short, lunch ended early, we went to Andrew's studio and the Focal Twin6 Be never left!
Sade's latest album, Soldier Of Love, was released earlier this year and, the last time I looked, it'd sold almost 3 million and been number one in 19 countries! During the early stages of the recording in 2009, Andrew told me, "we are using the Focals and loving them!" Earlier this year, when I asked how much of the album ended up being done on the Focal Twin6 Be, Andrew replied "All of it!".
