Clayton Hutson is a sound engineer that has worked in the entertainment industry and specializing in perfecting sound quality. He’s well known to be very considerate of the artist, the message they are sharing, and making sure that the sound quality and live performance experience is always at its best.
Hutson spent many years working for other sound engineering companies and producing as a Project Manager but ended up veering out into his own company searching for the fulfilment he wasn’t achieving under others supervision. The years of experience and training guided him into entrepreneurship and gave him the freedom to direct entertainment production under his careful care and consideration.
Bravely entering into a brand company during a recession, Hutson took his leap of faith to pursue his personal dreams and aspirations.
His most recent endeavor has been working with Kid Rock starting at 6:30AM every day. He takes pride in attending work before anyone else arrives to ensure that when they do, everything will be prepared to ensure a smoothly running day. Hutson explained that his morning consists of reviewing schedules, walking through the stage, making sure that items are stored and to-do lists are completed.

During the live show he further simplifies the responsibilities of all workers by preparing a plan on how to most efficiently break down the venue and assist the artist in moving to the next place for yet another amazing live show.
Wowing the clients and audience is always Hutson’s goal, and to assist him in achieving this feat he stays up to date on the newest pieces of technology and how to utilize it for the live-shows benefit. One of the things he’s noticed over the years is how the technology has increasingly become lighter, more compact, and technologically efficient to use. Another joy he’s had the opportunity to experience is managing and assisting in shows like Lady GaGa and Pink where there is a great deal of acrobatics, aerial stunts, and exciting light shows.
Checking, double checking, and triple checking one last time is something Hutson accredits to making sure that his endeavors as an entrepreneur doesn’t go by the wayside. He’s gone as far as to test the aerial ribbons for Pink’s show so that no one else would be hurt incase of any issues. He definitely puts his crew, team, and artists ahead of himself in ensuring that everyone succeeds.
