Tower of Power

Tower of Power

No matter who you are, where you live, or your taste in music, Tower of Power will find you. And once that happens, it's all over. You will come to believe not only that soul music is the salvation of us all, but that Tower of Power is one of those rare bands who can claim to be the real deal, 100 proof, aged-to-perfection, ground zero Soul. And the thing is, they're everywhere now.

And if you have heard the band over the past several years, you know that they sound awesome. Audix is proud to be part of that sound. In nearly every nook and cranny of the stage, you will find an Audix microphone working overtime to help bring the electrifying sound of the band to the audience the way it is intended.

Tower of Power founder and leader Emilio Castillo says “Working with Audix has been great – they help us to sound our best. The guys at the company have the same philosophy as Tower: ‘Be good, be consistent, play your heart out, don't forget your roots, and make sure the audience comes back for more!’”
