I am an experienced FOH and Monitor engineer, having toured with such artists as Bellowhead and Nizlopi. During my time as in-house engineer at The Tin in Coventry, Cecil Sharp House in London and FOH and Monitor Engineer for CV Audio and Hunter Audio-Visual in Coventry I have had the opportunity to work with artists such as Richard Thompson, Billy Bragg, Eliza Carthy, Graham Coxon, Andy Irvine, Nic Jones, John McCusker and many others.
In the conference world I have looked after sound for speakers including Rt. Hon Gordon Brown, Rt. Hon Hilary Benn MP, Rt. Hon Ed Balls and others.
Recording and Mixing
Recording and mixing credits include 'I Am a Stick' by Baby Dee (Tin Angel 2015) feat. Alex Nielson (Trembling Bells) and Colin Stetson (Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Tom Waits and many others) and numerous local artists.
I can provide PA and crew for events large or small. From a small acoustic show to a large outside concert, I can take care of it for you. Recent events include stage 2 at Dusk, Coventry Cathedral and Kenilworth Arts Festival where I am an official partner providing sound reinforcement for three events including the day long outside festival on Abbey Fields 'Fiesta'.
Provision can also be made for live recording.
All equipment is high quality and professional, favouring Allen and Heath and HK Audio.
"Drew recently worked with us on a folk gig at Kenilworth Castle and it was a thoroughly rewarding, stress-free experience. He did a brilliant job with the sound and I was incredibly impressed with his professionalism and attention for detail throughout the night. The artists were extremely impressed and so were the audience - I received several comments on the night, as well as emails in the aftermath of the event, from audience members who were keen to pass on their praise.”
- Lewis Smith, chairman of Kenilworth Festival Ltd. and co-ordinator of the Concerts in the Castle series at Kenilworth Castle
'I am always thrilled when I get to work with Drew. As a sound engineer, he is both knowledgeable and flexible, both
patient and productive, both classy and creative.'
