When it comes to producers and sound engineers in the music industry a lot of people are only focused on the money. So finding someone who is reliable and cares about the artist’s vision and feelings is very important. Music is what feelings sound like and countless songs/performances have been lost or under heard due to improper artist/producer combinations.
Clay Hutson, by way of Nashville, Tennessee has always had a passion for music. His love for the audio arts drove him to receive a bachelors degree from Central Michigan in theater design. After graduating he continued his academic journey receiving a masters degree from Steven M. Ross School of Business. This set the stage for him to make his entrance into the music industry. He began as a project coordinator and served as a sound engineer. After holding numerous positions and being exposed to various genres of music, Clay realized that he was the most passionate about Rock ‘n’ Roll. Music has taken Clay all throughout Europe, North America, and Australia.
Currently he produces concerts for A-list musicians such as Pink and Kid Rock to name a few. These days his primary focus has been stage management and live production. His passion for the music industry and his blue collar work ethic makes him successful as he stated in a recent interview. Not wanting to spread himself too thin, Clay says that he uses his cell phone to help operate all aspects of his business. Being able to do so through various apps lightens his workload tremendously.
Years of experience in the industry has given him extensive knowledge and assistance in regards to starting his own company. Starting a production management company was a natural progression from the work he had previously been doing. Hutson leads by example and makes sure he is the first one to arrive and the last one to leave. Using his past experiences to help shape his future experiences has been a great help to him. Passionate about a true live performance, Clay is not the biggest fan of large screens on stage but acknowledges that they can play a role. The live concert should be the true expression of the artist and he feels that the audience should see that. Clay stresses the importance of staying ahead of schedule and planning out his days. Keeping family first and business growing, Clay Hutson is where he needs to be.
