Clay Hutson is a successful businessman in the sound engineering industry but it didn’t start out that way. He first began his career in Nashville, Tennessee, taking classes in a university about theatre design. After searching for employment, Hutson found job opportunities at companies focused around live music entertainment and later on, he became a project manager for one. Knowing that he had a knack for this industry, Hutson decided to take an entrepreneurial route. And with that Hutson began his entertainment production business.
Clay Hutson was audio engineering for many productions and later on came to like working for music productions; more towards rock’n roll. He then worked as a monitor engineer with rock’n roll bands called “Garbage” in 2005 throughout Europe, North America and Australia. Now Hutson is in charge of stage management for Kid Rock. Clay Hutson had a creative mindset. When developing his ideas he usually creates new audio or lighting notions. Clients are always coming his way because Hutson is known for giving 100 percent every time. He is continuously observing his work and always looks back for any possible errors because he wants to maintain a great reputation. Not only does he like to leave no mistakes with his work but he also likes to work three paces ahead of what going on. That way he and the crew members can work productively.
Even though Hutson has a successful business now, he wasn’t always successful with his work in the beginning. During his years of being a subcontractor for a company, Hutson had a client that was displeased with the work and decided that they wanted Hutson to work with them directly. This ended with an argument and lawsuit with Hutson and his production company. Though, due to his already exceptional reputation, Hutson was able to move forward from this. As an entrepreneur, there will always be trials and tribulations ahead. But the one advice that Clay Hutson recommends to anyone is to always be prepared, organized and confident with your work.
