We are a new company, but gaining rapid popularity
in the professional music community. If you are an active musician
or engineer with a portfolio of published work who is using, or
is interested in our products, we like to hear from you. The
artists below are samples of our pro users, listed in an arbitrary order that will be shuffled
from time to time. If there are new developments, or they have recently joined the family, we tend to put
them closer to the top.
Unlike some companies, we do not pay artists to use
our products. We also don't ask them not to use competing products
from other companies. We are a music focused company and we think
artists should have maximum flexibility in using whatever they see
fit for a particular project. Kam himself, uses guitars, amps, and
microphones from other companies when the song calls for it. Artists
are simply listed here because they choose to use our products.
Note to New KAM Artists
We ask for your patience until we get your info on
this page. If we don't even have four of our new products shown at
NAMM listed on the website, we must be somewhat busy!
Hank Williams III
Hank road testing the
"Spectrum" mic on his "Damn Band" Tour
true rebel and gentleman , unusually respected in
three styles of music, country, metal, and punk, with live shows
that some call the best they have seen in their life, Hank chose
to road test our new Spectrum mic on his tour before the mic's
release to public . He loved the sound, but the mount was
becoming loose during shows. So we made changes based on his
findings. He proceeded to use the mic for recording
stand up bass, fiddle, banjo, and acoustic guitar on his
new album as well.
Hugo Ferreira / Tantric
Hugo (right) & Kenny Olson
Listening to draft mixes of Hugo's new album,
in a parked car with Kenny and some friends in Nashville, Kam
was blown away by the intensity of emotions delivered in the
vocals. Kenny of the Kid Rock fame plays his "singing and
crying" guitar on some tracks on the album, so there is no
shortage of heart and soul. Hugo has gently worked
intimate and sometimes heart breaking memories of the past 10
years into the lyrics.
We anxiously await the official release of
this new album and will include a link to it as soon as it is
released by the label in September. You will see why !
The heavenly voice of Sinead recently graced
one of our R3 mics at Sonic studio for some new tracks. Al, the studio owner told us she really loved the results.
She is very opinionated and outspoken about women's rights, war, and child abuse. We love that
about her, and the fact that all of her opinions are on the side
of equality, freedom, peace, non-violence, and basically getting the
masses to realize that each human deserves to live their life as
they want as long as they don't hinder the freedom of others.
This mysterious man is one of today's most
in-demand mixing and mastering engineers with a list of credits
that spans from Santana to Hannah Montana, and everything in
between, and to the left and right. More than 250 CD credits
many of which have ranked high on industry charts.
Anthony uses our HP1 for
monitoring and many of our mics including 2face, Chrystal, C3,
MC3, BD2, and i2 when he is tracking.
As a performing artist, Anthony
played guitar in Beautiful Creatures and at times plays drums or
guitar on the albums he works on. But you don't have to see
him perform live to to enjoy his art, just turn on the

Studios have been an iconic part of the recording scene in
Ireland since 1988. KAM R3, Candy, RT1, MC3, ST2, i2, BD2
are now part of their mic collection.
Recently Al shared an intriguing
idea for a new mic with Kam. Stay tuned for results!
A long and impressive list of
artists and clients have recorded at Sonic and we are proud to
be associated with them. Here is a an excerpt of what Al wrote
us a while back; "I wanted to say thanks for the Mics we got
from you a couple of months back, we have been using our Candys
and R3 on practically every session since we got them. the RT1
is constantly sitting on a stand in studio one and has been used
for every snare drum that came into the place."

Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences
When we were looking for new employees, out of
about a hundred applicants, the two who stood apart were CRAS
graduates. Its no surprise that heir alumni earned 13 Grammy
nominations in 11 categories. Their students get hands on
experience with KAM Crystal in the broadcasting class, and R3,
2face, and Candy mics in other classes.
Our congratulations to A- Lull for
recently getting singed to a record label.
This is a band to keep an eye on. The very unique sound they

with each of the members playing a floor tom in addition
to other instruments is a feast for the ears. Check out their

Attention All Shredders !
Are you in Guinness book of Records? Well,
Johnny Butten is. He holds the record for the world's fastest
banjo, and by the way, he sounded really good while winning
it too. If you are into folk and bluegrass music, you should
check him and his band out. The list of how many competitions he
has won sends the best of Olympic athletes into a deep depression.

Its not a secret that Tyson and Kamran
sometimes play together. But now that Tyson is one of Chicago's most
in-demand drummers, and is asked to perform
on more albums and shows than he actually has time to
commit to, is it wrong to include him as an artist here? Tyson is using KAM R3,
RT1, MC3, C3, i2, ST2, and BD2 for live performances and recording.
He is also "test driving" KAM Fidelio 6.5
monitors for mixing.
Carl Hay was recently part of the American Idol band for the TV
show and is almost constantly touring with Sony and Interscope artists.
He uses HP1 and Fidelio 6.5 for monitoring and KAM Mics on stage and in the studio.
"I absolutely love them, and have already gotten some of my
producer friends to use KAM products, they are absolutely

Sergio Michel - The Serge
Sergio's new song just passed 65,000 plays
on Fandalism. Congrats!
Segio's blend of fast guitar
playing, passionate vocals, and heavy metal style arrangements
combined with lyrics that honestly express his political,
religious, and social views contributes to his musical style. He has been using RT1 for vocals and guitar
cabinets, when he described
that he needed a low noise, high output and super crisp mic
for his new studio recordings. We were happy to let him know
our Crystal mic fits his requirements.
Simon PC Frost
Simon, the creative and charming composer
