David Billings

Live Sound Engineer

Live Sound Engineering

David studied our industry courses Audio Engineering Techniques and Technology and Live Sound Engineering, leaving SSR in January 2011.

Following his training with us David’s career has already begun to flourishand he has toured with Irish dance company Dance of Desire to places such as Dubai, Johannesburg and Las Vegas.

More recently, David worked as a Front of House (FOH) engineer at Manchester’s very own Parklife festival and has been employed by Britannia Row in London as one of their freelance engineers, which included working at the Hard Rock Calling festival alongside artists such as The Killers, James and the Kaiser Chiefs.

David Billings:
“The skills I learnt at SSR gave me a better understanding and stronger confidence to produce good sound for bands. When working in a venue or festival with not a lot of time to sound check stress sometimes takes over, but I have learnt to assess the situation and visualise what I need to do in order to get the best sound possible. In short I love my job; I travel the world with top bands and get paid for the pleasure!
