Kadi Toom on rokkbändides laulnud alates 11. eluaastast. 17 aastaselt sai lisaks bändile alguse ka soololaulja teekond koostöös erinevate tuntud muusikutega. Kadilt on Ilmunud kolm täispikka albumit ja üks EP. Albumitest üks – “You" – on avaldatud ka Portugalis. Tänaseks on Kadi võtnud puhkust suurtest bändidest ja aktiivsest soolokarijäärist ning esineb peamiselt akustiliste koosseisudega. Aastate jooksul on avaldatud mitmeid singlilugusid, autoriteks nii Kadi kui teised Eesti muusikud, terviklikku albumit Kadi neist vorminud pole. Suurema meediatähelepanu eest on Kadi pigem varju hoidnud.

David Arthur Brown is a singer and songwriter from Los Angeles known as a founder, lead singer and songwriter of Brazzaville and as a former touring saxophone player for Beck. On 2013 David teamed up with Pavel Bazdyrev – a young Russian businessman – and formed Soyuz Microphones to build world-class microphones in Russia. By now their company has grown to 20 full time employees. Soyuz microphones are being used by the likes of Coldplay, Radiohead, The Lumineers, Paramore and many other notable artists, engineers and producers.

Kadi Toom has been involved with rock bands since 11. From 17 she started solo career, collaborating with several known musicians and producers. She has produced three LP-s and one EP, one of them – “You” – was also released in Portugal. During later years she has released several singles, but not a full length album. As of today, Kadi is mainly live-performing acoustically.

Also used quite a lot during this weeks's recording sessions in Tartu - the Soyuz SU-017! I mainly used it on acoustic guitar, electric guitars, bagpipes & drums! The main characteristic that I love about this microphone is how airy and natural it sounds! Completely took the acoustic guitar sound to another level! @soyuzmicrophones @msonicbaltic

The SOYUZ SU-013 small diaphragm condenser microphone stereo pair, that comes with 3 different polar pattern capsules, offers a lot of versatility. I mainly used the SU-013 as room microphones in 2 albums, for piano, acoustic guitar, drums (also used them as OHs) and I was very surprised with the detail & definition of these microphones, even as room microphones far away from the source! Super warm, sound huge and clean, great tone, great build & finish! Another great piece from Tula & SOYUZ! @soyuzmicrophones @msonicbaltic
