Richard Stirton finds his voice with AKG
SOUTH AFRICA: Richard Stirton, the winner of The Voice South Africa, is partnering with AKG Professional by Harman, as announced by its distributor Audiosure. The manufacturer’s products have previously been supplied for artists such as Eric Clapton, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Kanye West. Additionally, the singer will be given access to a full range of AKG performance tools, including the C414 XL II and D7 microphones for live performances. These will be paired with the K182 headphones.
‘We feel that Richard Stirton is a perfect pairing with AKG Pro,’ explained Alison Taman, general manager at Audiosure. ‘The variations in tone, pitch and volume that he achieves in his performances are a perfect demonstration of the sonic capabilities of the microphones. We are proud to support him on his journey.’
Mr Stirton was similarly enthusiastic about the recent deal. ‘I’m very excited to be working with Audiosure and AKG. I have their studio mic at home which makes a huge difference with regards to vocal quality when I’m recording at my home studio. The performance mic is also super cool – I had one of my best shows using that mic recently. I really love the equipment and I’m excited that they’ve selected me to be part of this brand.’
