Clayton Hutson is one of the top minds of live music industry. Music has been his passion since he was a kid, and after long years of sweat, blood and tears, he turned his passion into a job, but as the saying goes “love what you do and you will never have to work a day in your life”. He has hewed himself a name in the music industry by collaborating with many of the greatest stars of music such as Pink (I’m Not Dead Tour) Guns N’ Roses (Appetite for Democracy Tour), Garbage, Kid Rock and Kelly Clarkson. He describes himself at his about.me profile as “An Event Producer / Production Manager / Rigger living in New York. I am a fan of music, entrepreneurship, and movies” and in his personal webpage (https://www.clayhutson.com/) he enumerates the services he offers as a professional “Production Design, Production Management, Show Producer, Monitor Engineer, Logistics Management, Stage Management and rigging”.
He attended college in Michigan to get a Bachelor’s Degree on Theater Design and Production and then obtained a MBA at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. He started small, working in various posts in different companies as Sound Engineer and Project Manager, even working with recently deceased evangelical preacher Billy Graham. The countless roles he worked in allowed him to learn various skills to make a career of his own. He finally settled in the world of music when in 2002 he got the shot to go on tour with Marylin Manson the next three years.
This continuous and thorough experience in different technical capacities helped Clay to polish abilities that allowed him to guarantee success when he chose to follow his own path with his company, and them, to oversee more effectively every venture he’s involved with to make a name of his own.
