Clay Hudson is a sound engineer who initially worked many jobs through which he gained numerous valuable skills but ultimately decided to create his own firm when the last recession hit. His company is responsible for numerous services including the design and management of successful musicians, the experience for which he gained working on concert tours. Clay Hudson now helps the likes of Kid Rock (among others) to deliver the best possible show to their audiences, among almost all other logistical areas of concert tours (such as video deployment and equipment management).
Initially, when going out on his own, Clay Hudson began to focus on what he had witnessed work (and what he had witnessed not work) and his CAD skills to impress everyone with his new firm. Despite this he ended up sub-contracting for a company, when the client requested to cut out the middle man Clay agreed and was quickly sued. He writes this off as his biggest mistake in the business world and used that experience to ensure he always had a direct relationship with clients from the get-go (and even insists on cutting out the HR middle man in regards to clients.) Despite all of the people he’s worked with, Clay claims Lady Gaga to be his favorite performer due to the nature of her shows using practical and visual effects (she does go out of her way to create a spectacle!)
To finalize, Clay Hudson learned the right skills and took the right risks to make a name for himself in the Rock & Roll community. By being rigorous (even being known for measuring the tours equipment and the doors to every location) and staying three steps ahead he has been able to create a prosperous and well rounded company, and has grown it through his sheer hard work and ability to cut out the middleman and take a more personal approach to client relations. Clay Hudson has become maybe the first of his kind to provide a well rounded service to touring musicians with little hassle and a name that is synonymous with rigorous work and success.
