A LITTLE BACKGROUND:
My name is Steven Foxbury and I have been playing music most of my life. It has been a lifelong obsession that has only grown with time. I’ve had some modest success as a songwriter: record/publishing deals, a couple songs on the radio and my work has been featured in film, television, and commercials.
Since launching Yellow Couch Studio in 2013, it’s morphed from a tiny basement recording studio, into the (tiny basement) home of Yellow Couch Sessions, a video series that I produce with my good bud Matt Dayak. It’s also home to Yellow Couch Management, which is mostly how I spend my time these days. As such, I’m not generally able to take on commercial projects in the studio, but damned if I don’t miss it.
I love the stuffing out of the folks that I work with and still feel happy every time I walk into this place.
Thanks for visiting,
The team at Peluso have let me use a number of their microphones and below are some videos that I believe really let the mics shine:
I’ve owned my 22 47 SE for nearly six years and I love this microphone. Its warmth and rich character are tough to beat:
The P-12 has been so much fun to use, that I actually purchased the demo model that they sent. When it comes to vocals, it’s always a shootout between this and the 47. You can cover an insane amount of ground between these two mics:
The P-49. Man, this mic sniffs out so much incredible low-end magic. On the right voice, it’s so, so great and it’s also my favorite drum overhead:
The Vacuum Tube Bottle ‘VTB’ (currently discontinued): The way that this microphone takes a vocal and drops it directly into a mix is pretty mind-boggling. We were able to use it a fair amount during last year’s Three Rivers Arts Festival. Man, I miss that mic!
The P-84: Since Pelsuo sent me this matched pair of small diaphragm condensers, they have been my go-to for anything with strings on it. Nearly every acoustic guitar, violin and/or cello that we’ve featured has had a P-84 pointed at it:
