Splice Originals Soul Roots with Cover Story Doo Wop WAV
If you’ve lived in NYC for long enough, you know Cover Story. The acapella doo wop group has been busking in the city for decades. The five men came up in the 60s and 70s, absorbing all kinds of music, including doo wop, a voices-only, more popular distillation of r&b. They sang in separate soul projects and doo-wop groups, but found something special when they combined their voices. Even now, Cover Story’s music truly exemplifies the delicate doo wop of yesteryear in both music and mood, but “with the feeling of gospel”. This is the same doo wop that directly influenced hip hop and modern pop.
We captured their silken vocals and heavy harmonies in Brooklyn at Aura. We used a Beyerdynamic MC930, Avedis MA5 preamps, and a Bock 47 through a Great River preamp. The pack from that performance is full of lovelorn loops and wistful one-shots, and is perfect for any production that needs some background vocals that might steal your girl.
