Scott Adamson is a touring FOH audio engineer and the founder of The Production Academy, an online school dedicated to helping musicians and sound engineers get the technical knowledge they need to have successful shows.

A California native who has been working in the music industry since the late 1990’s, Scott moved to Iowa with his family in his early teens, and it was there that he started playing the drums. His musical ambitions led him to play in several bands and he slowly developed an interest in the live sound aspect of the shows as well.

Amanda Davis

Amanda Davis

How does a Memphis Gospel singer find her way to Chicago to become an Opera singer, only decide the spotlight isn’t for her, and ultimately forge a career as the successful FOH Engineer for Janelle Monáe?

It’s these questions and more that I explore with the amazing and talented Amanda Davis
Frustrated by the constraints of her classical training, and realizing the spotlight wasn’t where she was most comfortable, Amanda found a path into the world of live audio production where she has made a name for herself as one of the most solid Engineers on the road today.

Dave Rat

Dave Rat

In the late ‘70’s and into the ‘80’s Hollywood and the Sunset Strip played host to the hair bands and spandex superstars that rocked clubs like the Whiskey and the Roxy night after night. But several miles down the coast, a new sound was emerging; raw, impatient, and not satisfied with the Status Quo.

It was in this world that Dave Rat of Rat Sound Systems carved his place as a trusted engineer, with a company that provided the kind of equipment that could match the DIY attitude of the artists and crowds that were showing up to hear bands like Black Flag, Jane’s Addiction, and Rage Against the Machine.
