Jackson 5 Legend Tito Jackson on the Aston Spirit

Category : Artists

Careers and contributions to musical culture don’t get much more distinguished than that of Tito Jackson. The Rock’n’Roll Hall of Famer and member of the legendary Jackson Five has been crafting soulful blues and pop since the 1960’s and released his debut solo album, Tito Time, in December 2016.

Tito is currently in the studio working on new solo material and we were excited to learn the Motown legend has been using an Aston Spirit condenser on the BVs! Tito explains how the Spirit surfaced among a number of other options:

“I’m recording my blues album right now and my producer MJ says he wants a different sound on the background vocals and brings in the Aston Spirit microphone. I’ve got a lot of mics to choose from... tube, ribbon, condensers you name it, but I agreed to try something new. I have to say I was surprised and very impressed.”

The Aston Spirit condenser mic features a 1” gold evaporated capsule and a choice of Omni, Cardioid or Figure-of-Eight polar patterns. Versatile, open and natural sounding it has found favour with many top artists ad producers as a vocal mic and for recording acoustic instruments, capturing all the high-end detail without the harshness sometimes associated with other condenser mics.

“I’m happy we tracked with the Spirit. We went straight in to the SSL board and these backgrounds sound clean! Can’t wait to try it on a lead & some other instruments as well. Great mic!” Tito told us.

Tito is a keen Wolverhampton Wanderers fan and has been enjoying their return to the Premier League this season, so much so he made his debut single, ‘We Made It’ free to download for the 24 hours of the club’s promotion party earlier this year. He has also reportedly been looking at properties in the area around Wolves’ Molineux stadium.

We can’t wait to hear the new blues album and hope news of some live performances will follow.
