Clay Huston knows the Music Industry is a business that is difficult to break into and find long-term success. Fortunately, years of the experience have taught Huston the secrets to finding prosperity in the industry. Before Huston started his career in Nashville, he enrolled in university courses on theater design. As an audio engineer, Huston found employment in the live music industry. From there he found success in becoming a project manager, which gave him an opportunity to hone his skill.
After a few years, Hutson decided to establish a business that focused on providing services for musicians and event organizers that covers all aspects of the live music industry including managing, producing and designing concerts. This business specifically focused on bands in the rock music genre. Since starting the business, Hutson has worked with many well-known performers such as Kid Rock, Guns N’ Roses, and Pink. In 2018, Huston worked as an automatic rigging system operator for OneRepublic’s “Honda Civic Tour“ which took Huston across North America and Asia during July, August and September.
This wide range of experience has given Huston more than enough insight into what makes someone successful in the live music industry. Huston believes one the habits that those working in the live music industry should cultivate is to double check their work for mistakes that could compromise the safety of the group performing or degrade the quality of a show. All it takes is one serious error to damage a company’s reputation permanently. Huston also believes staying on top of the latest trends is critical. To meet your client’s expectations, you need to keep up with technology trends as mundane as increased brightness in Mobile lighting equipment and video walls. The latter is not only brighter but lighter which means the production company benefits from this in more than one way.
