Meet The Maker of The Shure mv7 Podcast Microphone
Today we’re joined by Laura Clapp Davidson. After moving to Nashville as a Berklee College of Music graduate, Laura quickly befriended some of Music City’s best and it wasn’t long before she was singing for a living. This led to countless demo sessions, an incredible journey as backing vocalist for 80’s synth legend Howard Jones and the opportunity to share her love of music gear as a product specialist for several music equipment manufacturers. Most recently, Laura joined the legendary Shure Incorporated as their Retail Market Development Specialist which is why she joins us today to walk us through some of their biggest and best microphones.
