Tonight at 8:30 (after the Simpsons on FOX) is the premier of a show we’ve been working on for the past couple of months called Bless the Harts. @drewsherm wrote the music, @eegreasy played the drums, @kenrichnyc played the bass and @johnnyloudboy played guitar. @jakehleh recorded the band and Ken Rich mixed it - all at #grandstreetrecording !! Created by SNL alum, Emily Spivey. With Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, Ike Barinholtz, and Kumail Nanjiani (as a hilarious Jesus). We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Been thinking of our dear friend Bill Sims Jr. who passed a couple of days ago. Really proud of this record we made together with Andy Hess on bass and guest appearances by Emmylou Harris, John Scofield, Joan Osborne and Jim Campilongo. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Grand St. by Ken Rich and co-produced with Ethan Eubanks.

this Soyuz US-017 is simply stunning and not only holds it own against our collection of LDC microphones, but truly shines in it's own way and has become a go-to mic for many applications at GSR.

Our flagship SU-017 in the presence of a legend at Grand Street Recording, Inc. in Brooklyn. Special thanks to Ken Rich for showing me around your beautiful studio and to Dan Physics for letting them test the 017.
