Clay Hutson isn’t what people think of when they think of the Music Industry. He is the person who considers the Artist’s thoughts and Feelings when they put a production together. He is well known inside the industry for the beautiful and unique experiences he brings to the Audiences.

Mr. Hutson has a background in Theatre Design and Technical Production, which he earned a Bachelor Degree in from Central Michigan University and a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Michigan. Since 1999 He has been a Production Manager working with Getagrip Touring and a VP of Production with Ronin Event Creative. He started his own Production Company when he saw an opportunity as the Company he was working for had difficulties during the Recession. He has worked with various artists like Prince, Jennifer Nettles, Kanye West, Guns N’ Rose, Pink, Garbage, and Kid Rock.

When he is working on productions he likes to have his day planned out to keep his focus, especially when on the road. He is known to work from Sun-rise to Sun-set on productions. Being productive is a key for him and his crew. This extends beyond when he is Managing a Shows Stage, but when he is working out ideas for an Artist’s event. For him it isn’t only about what spectacles he can achieve, but all the details both on and off stage.

To create some of the experiences he draws on his experience and looks to new advances in live venue technology. He comments that the lights are still big and bright, but now they weigh half as much. So he is able to move and put them in places like never before. He is excited about how video is becoming a new exciting field when it comes to the events. Something that was so limited to only certain venues is rapidly becoming a new tool in his expansive skill it.

Mr. Hutson is definitely a behind the scenes influencer in the Music Industry. He is not an Artist, Writer, or a Producer, but his effect on the industry doesn’t go without notice. He may not get a lot of recognition by the public, but they know when he is here. If you want to know more about him, check out his interview with Business Advice at the link below.
