Live Sound Engineer
SSR graduate Simon Hawkins is continuing to flourish in the world of audio. After previously reporting Simon’s success in securing his first tour with Wigwam, on the Bob the Builder tour, we are extremely happy to announce that he is now working on the touring show Stomp!
Simon graduated from SSR in March 2008. Originally enrolling on the 18 month Audio Engineering Techniques & Technology and Live Sound courses. Simon secured a placement with Wigwam Acoustics before the end of his course, and he was soon working with acts such as Bloc Party and Westlife as well as Manchester acts Badly Drawn Boy, The Magic Numbers and the Ting Tings.
Simon is currently the head sound engineer on the show Stomp and this roll has taken him across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. He has just returned from a 14 week stint on the Gold Coast in Australia and is looking forward to heading out to Moscow and Italy later in the year.
"I think that the enthusiasm and dedication shown by the tutors at SSR has spurred me on to be successful at what I do. At the same time it’s reminded me to keep my feet on the ground, ready to learn new stuff and to always better myself. I owe a lot to them."
