To talk about Clay Hutson is to talk about one of the masterminds of the live music industry. He is the hand that rocks the cradle, or in this case, the hand that rocks the show (pun intended). What makes him so successful? He’s one of a kind. He always seeks aesthetic climax and a complete artistic experience that goes beyond the mere sound of music, He’s obsessed, or rather, passionate about what he does: he works non-stop, from Monday to Monday to ensure he delivers the greatest experience possible. One of his advantages is that he amassed tons of knowledge in different kinds of live production and then in live music industry before dedicating fully to mark his own trail. These different works helped him to acquire a wide variety of skills that make him as successful as he is. He’s fully knowledgeable of every single aspect of live production so he understands each of his crew’s tasks and oversees them effectively. This immense experience helps him in visualizing ideas for all aspects of the show (set design, lighting, sound, etc.) and lets him understand quickly what might and might not work in every kind of venture.
Music EntertainmentOne of his other keys is to always work with gifted artists that are as obsessed as he is. Clay says he prefers to work with someone a bit difficult, “a little rough around the edges” but immensely talented and passionate about music and about delivering a quality show than working with a nice, politically correct person who’s not really talented or doesn’t actually mind about the quality of his show. But he says the greatest key for his success is a simple one: hard work. In his industry hard work and reputation are everything. And he certainly has earned both. He considers leading by example as the only possible way to inspire your crew so he always tries to be the hardest working person of his team, that’s why he enjoys working with artists who truly appreciate the work of live production and commit themselves to perform a stark live experience. He dedicates fully to every show he’s involved in, it doesn’t matter if it’s in a small club or at a sold-out arena: he goes the extra mile in every show.
