Dominic Breen Performs ‘Under Your Sorrow’ Live at Enmore
Despite the pandemic and the lockdowns that came with it, Dominic Breen has been a busy man. With two singles regularly finding their way onto the radio, as well as a freshly minted debut LP, Blue Volume, it’s an exciting time to be in the Breen camp.
For his Live at Enmore session, he brought with him the opening track off Blue Volume, his new single, Under Your Sorrow.
Unabashedly emotional, it’s a powerful ballad that has a tinge of folk in its lilting rhythms. Delivered with Breen’s trademark intensity, Under Your Sorrow is a song that will live with you long after it stops playing.
Under Your Sorrow was Mixed and Recorded by Dan Shaw and Owen Penglis
Being a solo session, Breen accompanied himself with a chimey 12-string guitar. This delicate wash of harmony was the perfect backdrop for his vocal performance, which was full of dynamic peaks and valleys. Here’s what he had to say about Under Your Sorrow before the session:
“It’s about just saying ‘why not?’ I did write it before Covid [but] I feel connected to it now, in a way, because it is singing from a place of isolation and wanting to get in touch with people.”

The Live at Enmore series is made possible with the help of our tech partner Audio-Technica. Here’s a list of the microphones that were used to capture this incredible performance:
For a clean, consistent capture of a dynamic vocal, the AE4100 ticks just about every box.
Dynamic mics are perfect for capturing all the grit and mid-range details of a guitar amp. For this task, we went with the Audio-Technica AE2300.
Coupled with dynamic, a ribbon mic has all the bottom end juice you need on an amp. The Audio-Technica AT4081 is perfect for the task.
