Troy Cassar-Daley on the Shure KSM313: "I thought this mic would be as good as it looks, but not this good! I redid a demo for my record in Nashville and tried it out, I think it’s stunning. I will be taking this mic and it’s box to Nashville".



Troy Cassar-Daley has earned the reputation as one of Australia’s finest country performers, honing his craft over the course of 20 years and 6 studio albums. This stellar career is recognised by the release of “Born To Survive”, the Best Of Troy Cassar-Daley through EMI Music.

“Born To Survive” is a luminous collection of 20 songs, tracing Troy’s career from his first major label recording “Dream Out Loud”, to his new single “Everything Is Going To Be Alright”. Incredibly, 13 of these 20 songs reached #1 on the Country Tracks Top 30, and many of them secured accolades from ARIA Awards to Golden Guitars.

Troy’s spectacular duets are recognized on “Born To Survive” – including those from Jimmy Barnes (Bird On A Wire) to Paul Kelly (I Wish I Was A Train) and Slim Dusty (The Biggest Disappointment), amongst others.

Troy Cassar-Daley has an incredible personal story, one that has borne itself through his songs. As a child of an Aboriginal mother and Maltese father, his childhood is the stuff of legend – growing up in Grafton, running away to live with his father in Surry Hills, teaching himself to play guitar, his mother’s work on the railways, his beloved grandmother … all are factors in the rich tapestry of his life which heavily influenced his songwriting. Cassar-Daley has grown from these humble begins to become one of

Australia’s most loved and recognizable performers – culminating in his recent star turns on “Standing On The Outside” – The Songs Of Cold Chisel” performing “Bow River”, and TV series “It Takes Two”.

With “Born To Survive” comes a new single “Everything Is Going To Be Alright”, a song co-written with Don Walker and featuring vocals from Paulini, Dave Gleeson, David Campbell and Wendy Matthews, Troy’s peers from “It Takes Two”.

Troy himself sums up the release of his Best Of most succinctly, saying “Six albums down the line, you should be able to put together a compilation that gathers the best stuff you’ve put down and have it be pretty good.” Pretty good indeed!

Shure In-Ear Monitors Ensure Consistency & Quality For Troy Casser-Daley

Michael ChandlerMichael Chandler is the Tour Manager and Front of House Engineer for country music sensation Troy Cassar-Daley - an artist he has worked with for many years. It all started fifteen years ago when Michael was hired to look after Troy’s monitor requirements and the two have forged a solid working relationship over that time.

For the past three years Troy has utilised a Shure PSM 700 personal monitor system and Michael states that he still can’t get over how good it is!

“It’s been phenomenal,” he said. “Troy has a very mixed audience from eighteen to eighty year olds and the sound needs to be very smooth to cater to everyone. With the in-ears it’s definitely been doing that because there’s no stage sound so I have total control over all the sound. It’s amazing when you turn the sound off out front and turn the desk down, all you can hear is the snare drum. All the volume is in the PA and nothing is compromised.”

Michael really notices the difference when he mixes for other acts that do not use a Shure PSM 700 system.

”You just have to go back to reinforcing what’s coming off the stage rather than mixing exactly to the sound that you want. That’s the key thing with Troy; I’m getting the exact sound that I want and I’m not compromising at any level.”

Michael reports that initially Troy’s band was a bit dubious about using in-ears but once they did, in the form of Shure PSM 600, they couldn’t be happier. With Michael touring the same equipment every time that Troy and his band tour, there is almost no need for sound checks.

“Once we have the PA tuned to the room, which is done before the band arrive, they just start playing,” he said. “I usually only need to make a few fine adjustments and although the venues differ greatly, we achieve the same sound every night.”

Shure microphones also dominate the stage with Beta 87, Beta 57A, Beta 58’s, Beta 52A and DMK57-52 microphones ensuring quality reproduction.

”We always have our Shure microphones and together with the Shure in-ear monitors, everything stays the same wherever we play because they’re industry standard,” added Michael.

Troy has his own home studio where he again prefers Shure microphones; the KSM 32, KSM9CG, SM57, SM94-LC and SM81-LC models.

TCD GuitarA word from Troy:

"There are some things I would never go on tour without, toothbrush, shirts, boots and jeans, oh and most importantly my Shure mics and in ear monitoring. If you are just starting out in a garage band or playing in front of 20,000 people at an outdoor festival Shure musical products has something for everyone's budget. This gear is world class!

I bought by first old SM58 back in 1986 in Tamworth for some busking I was going to do. I still have that old mic and it still works great, which proves one simple thing to me, Shure mics are built for the long haul and will see you through every part of your musical journey and I love 'em! Play loud and proud!!!"
