BGS has partnered with American-made microphone company Ear Trumpet Labs (ETL) for the Portland Series which features ETL’s handcrafted microphones alongside some of Americana’s most acclaimed artists. ETL’s microphones are the brainchild of Philip Graham, who strived to create a unique product that was both visually and aurally stunning, delivering studio quality sound in a live setting, which is exemplified in the video series.
Reflecting the tender lilt of her melody, a gentle smile makes its way across Annalisa Tornfelt's face as the sun streams down on her Portland Series Sitch Session. The brightness of the day — and the smile — stands in contrast to the sentiment of the song. "One is the day I begin counting. Two is for two eyes — I know how they say goodbye. Three is a sad thought I will never tell you," she sings, ticking off the numbers of her heartbreak, one at a time, in "Riddle Me This," off her latest album, The Number 8.
Be sure to catch all of the Portland Series videos and vote on your favorite for a chance to win an ETL microphone.
