Vintage King Audio, a dealer of high-end new and vintage recording equipment, recently donated two Korby Audio KAT Red microphones to the Visionary Media Company in New York City, a non-profit organization connecting blind musicians, composers, vocalists and audio professionals with employment opportunities in their field.

"It made sense for Vintage King to provide exceptional mics like the Korby Red's for such an exceptional group of musicians," says Vintage King co-owner Mike Nehra. "We hope that the music created with the mics will bring awareness to this talented group of artists and worthwhile cause."

Guitarist Eric Warren and 13-year-old jazz vocalist Rocco Fiorentino were able to take advantage of the new mics while recording tracks for the non-profit's forthcoming album, Songs About Blindness, set for release later this year.

Vintage King's personal commitment to working with blind musicians began when Andrew and Mike Nehra met Robert Bradley, a blind street musician performing outside of the brothers' White Room Studio in 1994. The Nehras were instantly impressed with Bradley's talent and innate connection with the music. After laying down a handful of tracks with Bradley in the White Room, they developed and produced the project, known as Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise, which eventually led to a deal with RCA. The trio continued writing, recording and touring for five years, leaving a lasting mark on the Nehras and Vintage King's commitment to the cause.
