Ghostlight Records has released the original cast recording of "Bright Star," the top Broadway musical from Grammy and Emmy Award winner Steve Martin and Grammy winning singer/songwriter Edie Brickell. The album was produced by multi-Grammy Award-winning Peter Asher, and recorded by engineer Nathaniel Kunkel at New York's MSR Studios. TELEFUNKEN microphones have been a longtime favorite of Asher and his engineer Nathaniel Kunkel. "In the video, you can see what a key role both my fabulous ELA M 251 and my AK-47 played in the recording of the cast album." TELEFUNKEN provided a sizeable additional collection of microphones for the project and was given special thanks in the CD liner notes.
