Yeah well the UA Apollo 8 preamp/interface is $2K whereas her mic was $100.

However, it is a very good idea to spend almost all the money on the micpre slash interface. Cheap ones suck and good ones are really required to get pro quality sound.

I think the intrigue here is that there are no longer industry gatekeepers and commercial homogenizers that dictate what we will all hear. That's not entirely true but the times have changed. I looked up 18 year old Billie Eilish's net worth and it's at about 8 million. I can't imagine how a girl and her brother were able to do so much with so little and collect four Grammys as the new guard so independently. It's progress.

They are amazing and also don't have the celebrity turtle shell yet.

She's going to turn into an icon because of her looks and actually, that's kind of sad because she really acts like a normal person now. Seems like that warps everyone it happens to.

Well I'm not hoping for that. They seem like great kids.

But now they will have millions. no will tell them no and every whim will be indulged. What could possibly go wrong with that scenario.
