Charis Grace: I Will Love You

After a year of Charis asking me to buy a microphone, I finally gave in and bought an SM57. As I mostly mix live events, a '57 seemed the best mic to get, as the world and his wife have '58s coming out of their ears, but nowhere I visit ever have '57s.
I had a free day on Saturday, so after cleaning the oven I set up the studio (by which I mean threw cushions on sharp edges and plugged in my mixer differently) and spent the afternoon recording Charis. There's only so much you can do with cheap equipment and Audacity, but I'm quite pleased with the final mix of this first track.
So here it is - Charis Grace's debut demo "I will love you":
Update: it's gone from soundcloud!
