After a headline UK tour and a prestigious support slot with Paloma Faith, young British singer songwriter Eliza Doolittle is out on her own touring the world using Sennheiser’s e695 wireless mic and G3 IEMs. The 22-year-old pop star hails from London and has already generated a loyal UK fan base. Her self-titled debut album was released in July 2010 and was an instant hit, which was enough to impress Sennheiser UK’s Phil Cummings. “Eliza is one of the current breed of female singer songwriters who all have their own unique identity,” he says. “With her album hitting number three in the UK chart, we believe that there are big things ahead for her. Doolittle’s FOH engineer and tour manager Jim Carmichael is a long-time Sennheiser user; and a fan of the 900 series, which he rates for its ruggedness and reliability as well as audio quality and signal strength. Sennheiser’s sponsorship extends to Doolittle’s band members, who are all using wired e935s; and in the near future, Doolittle will join the select few high-profile artists that are lucky enough to get their own unique handheld. “We’re looking forward to having a custom wireless microphone made up for Eliza; I think that would really top it off for her,” says Carmichael. “Even when not touring our own mics I try to specify Sennheiser vocal mics, because I know they will deliver the goods.” Doolittle’s extensive touring schedule includes dates in Europe, the USA, and Australia. Her final shows this year are at Vienna’s B72 club on December 12th and the Dublin Academy on 14th.
