Singer-songwriter Katie Melua may have first risen to fame in the UK, but her roots are in the country of Georgia. Her seventh album, In Winter is a collection of seasonal, hauntingly beautiful songs, Melua’s interpretations of classic Christmas carols coupled with originals that soar to stunning heights with the backing of Gori women’s choir გორის ქალთა კამერული გუნდი. The recent tour graced some of most beautiful concert halls in the UK, including England’s Birmingham Town Hall and Symphony Hall.
Colin Walker of the UK’s Orange Room Music chose a LEOPARD system provided by Capital Sound Hire for Melua’s tour sound.
“I have been really impressed with how natural and musical the LEOPARD system sounds. The predominantly acoustic nature of Katie’s music makes these qualities a must for me when choosing a system,” Walker says. “In addition to that, the small size of the cabinet, low weight per box and easy rigging system makes the system an ideal choice, especially for some of the older more challenging theatres we played on this tour.”
