Eddie The Eagle 'Fly' Album Launch

Wednesday 23rd March 2016
Last week I was hired to mix monitors for the 'Fly' album launch, a soundtrack of songs from the newly-released film 'Eddie The Eagle'. We rehearsed for 3 days at SW19 studios in Wimbledon, the show was held at One Mayfair in London and featured a house band playing with Gary Barlow, Hollie Johnson, Paul Young, Howard Jones, Tony Hadley, Nik Kershaw and Go West. It was hosted by Dermot O'Leary. I mixed the show on a CL5 with Shure PSM1000 IEMs and d&b M4 wedges.

Rick Astley

Sunday 21st February 2016
I am currently looking after Rick Astley's monitors for several one-off dates. The first two took place last week in the Moon Palace Arena in Cancún, Mexico and the next 3 will be in Viña Del Mar/Santiago, Chile. The band features 6 musicians and Rick, all on IEMs with additional wedges on the front line. We are using local gear everywhere, including PM5D-RH and PSM900s at monitors. The set features all the hits, material from his forthcoming album as well as Rick's take on more contemporary numbers!

Sveriges Historia

Monday 14th December 2015
I have just finished a six-week residency at the Rival Teater in Stockholm, interspersed with a couple of shows in Gothenburg with Swedish comedians Özz Nûjen and Måns Möller and their sold out, award-winning show 'Sveriges Historia - den nakna sanningen'. I mixed FOH on an Allen & Heath iLive-T80 with the installed L'Acoustics ARC system. The show will resume in January 2016 when it goes on tour around Sweden.

Little Mix / All Saints

Wednesday 14th October 2015
Last week, I was hired to mix in-ear monitors for 2 different four-piece all girl bands. The first was an appearance of All Saints at a corporate event that took place at The Roundhouse in Camden, London. The second was for Little Mix who were guest artists on Idol, the Swedish version of Pop Idol recorded in Stockholm. They performed their new song 'Black Magic' which was broadcast live to air on Friday night.

Rewind Festivals

Tuesday 18th August 2015
I looked after stage sound for the Rewind Festival's house band in Scotland and Cheshire again this year. Among the artists I mixed monitors for were Jimmy Somerville, Belinda Carlisle, Heather Small, The Selecter, Nik Kershaw, Kim Wilde, ABC, Bananarama, Chesney Hawkes, Hue & Cry and many many more. I used a Yamaha PM5D-RH, with a combination of Sennheiser 2000 series IEM and Martin Audio LE1500 wedges. The Rewind All-Star band is a busy and complex show which utilizes all 48 inputs (plus 2 stereo inputs) and all 24 mixes.

British Summer Time at Hyde Park

Tuesday 23rd June 2015
BST Hyde Park is over for another year, this time featuring world class artists including The Who, Blur, Taylor Swift and Kylie among others. I looked after monitors again, Capital Sound supplying a flip-flop control system with 2 x PM5Ds at monitors, 2 x Profiles at FOH, 2 x 48-way line systems in addition to Martin Audio LE1500 wedges and microphones as dictated by visiting engineers. This dual-setup allowed engineers to have a maximum amount of time on their board and a line-check to happen behind the drape before the band are rolled onto the stage. Yet again, a large Martin Audio MLA system was deployed which allowed a level of over 100dBA at FOH while maintaining strict off-site limits.

Il Divo European Tour 2014

Wednesday 15th October 2014
I am currently on tour with Il Divo, a multinational operatic pop group on their 2 month long autumn tour 'A Musical Affair'. Playing mostly arenas, the show has so far been through Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and is heading back to the UK in a few days time before finishing in Lisbon. I am looking after a Capital Sound supplied monitor system comprised of a DiGiCo SD10, 8x Sennheiser G3 IEMs, Martin Audio LE1500 wedges and W8LM flown side-fills.

The end of Festival Season 2014

Friday 5th September 2014
This year has seen me looking after monitors on no less than 7 UK festivals, including BST Hyde Park Great Oak Stage, Rewind (Perth, Henley-on-Thames and Chester), Field Day Main Stage (Victoria Park, London) and SW4 Main Stage (Clapham Common, London). While I love the challenges these gigs present, and have had the opportunity to work with some great bands and artists, I'm also looking forward to doing some gigs indoors for the rest of the year!

Leona Lewis at the WMAs

Monday 30th June 2014
This week I was hired to mix monitors for Leona Lewis at the World Music Awards, where she performed the song 'La La La' with producer Naughty Boy. The show was demanding with a very fast turnover of artists, this act alone requiring 8 ways of IEM. Other acts on the bill of this annual awards show, hosted in Monte Carlo, included Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus and Tinie Tempah.

Tuesday 22nd April 2014
Bo Kaspers Orkester are a Grammis award winning jazz/pop combo from Sweden who released their first single in 1992. I joined their spring 2014 tour as monitor engineer with production supplied by Soundforce AB. In order to mix 44 inputs down for 7 musicians and 1 tech, a DiGiCo SD8 with SD-rack was supplied at monitors with a 10-way Sennheiser G3/G2 IEM system. FOH comprised of a DIGiCo SD8-24 with Lexicon 224 and although in most venues house PA was available, d&b V-Series PA was supplied when necessary.
