Buddy Woodward and Brandi Hart of the Dixie Bee-liners with their HM-1 mics.
The Roots Music Association 2008 Artist of the Year, The Dixie Bee-Liners, are now touring and recording with KEL microphones. Buddy Woodward says about KEL mics, We LOVE the way KEL microphones are voiced. In a world of sizzly Asian knock-offs, and generic large condensers, you’ve really hit on something strange, wonderful and unique. KEL microphones have become part of our sound, and we never play anywhere without ‘em!
With their ground-breaking album, RIPE, that has achieved four #1′s to date, PINECASTLE recording artists THE DIXIE BEE-LINERS are creating quite a buzz. Known for their high-octane harmonies and stunningly beautiful original songs, the band has appeared live on BBC Radio Scotland, NPR, the Food Network, and radio playlists across the country and world-wide, including regular rotation on Sirius and XM satellite radio. RIPE, topped the Bluegrass Now Fan’s Choice Top 20 chart twice, and also achieved two simultaneous #1′s on Bluegrass Music Profiles’ Top 20 Hot Singles and the Roots Music Report Bluegrass Chart. The Bee-Liners spent nine consecutive weeks atop the RMR Bluegrass chart and two consecutive months in the Top Ten of both Bluegrass Unlimited charts.
Produced by Grammy-winner BIL VORNDICK (Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Bob Dylan, Jim Lauderdale, James Taylor), RIPE was released on PINECASTLE RECORDS in the spring of 2008. The album includes guest appearances from DBL alumnus Andy Falco (Infamous Stringdusters), Mark Fain and Andy Leftwich (Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder), ex-Grascal David Talbot, and dobro player Travis Toy from Rascal Flatts.
In February they entered the studio with VornDick again to begin work on a new album for 2009.
We at KEL Audio are honored to be able to help support this fine band as they tour through 2009, and beyond!
