Audix Microphones announced today that songwriter, musician, and performer Andrew W.K. has joined Audix's Artist Endorser roster.
Andrew W.K., "The King of Partying" is in preparation to embark on the U.K. leg of his "The Party Never Dies" tour and, through encouragement of FoH engineer, Chez Stock, experimented with an Audix OM7 dynamic vocal microphone at a recent show.
"When my Front of House sound engineer, Chez, suggested I try a different vocal mic live, I was open minded, but couldn't imagine it making much of a difference. I thought, at best, it would help cut down some of the bleed and stage noise issues, but I never imagined it would literally REINVENT my approach to vocals and live singing, period," Andrew W.K. said. "Well, the Audix mic has done just that. I cannot adequately convey how powerful of an effect this has had on our show, and on me as a performer. It's changed everything for me and has helped usher in a new era for my band and my music. I'm thrilled to now be an endorser of Audix."
"At Audix, we are interested in developing a diverse and eclectic roster of talented musicians and sound engineers who truly appreciate the design, innovation, and quality that Audix microphones are renowned for," said Abbey Masciarotte, Marketing Manager, Audix. "Andrew W.K. is an experienced and exciting artist whose energetic stage presence, commitment to music education and involvement in the music industry community really exemplify what we look for in artist endorsers. We are so pleased Andrew W.K. is now part of the Audix family."
Andrew will be using Audix vocal microphones this weekend when he performs at Corona Capital Festival in Mexico City, MX on November 18, 2017. Andrew will also be releasing a new full-length album on March 2, 2018, via Sony worldwide with a U.K. and U.S. tour kicking off in the Spring of 2018 in support of the new album.
