VUE Audiotechnik has announced the appointment of seasoned sound engineer and production expert, Shawn London, to the position of touring sound sales manager.
“Interest in al-Class line arrays has increased exponentially as exposure through artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Third Eye Blind and Pharrell Williams brings our capabilities into a global spotlight,” remarked VUE CEO Ken Berger.
“In fact, VUE is the only new pro audio brand to break into the national pro touring market in the past decade. I’m thrilled to welcome Shawn to VUE and am confident that our customers around the globe will feel his presence immediately.”
Prior to joining VUE, London was live sound and touring business development manager for Allen & Heath, as well as house audio engineer at the El Ray, Fonda Roxy and Fox Theaters in Los Angeles. His pro audio pedigree includes 20 years of engineering and production experience in both studio and live environments.
London has experience with some of the most notable festivals including Lollapalooza, Coachella and the Warped Tour, and has performed front of house and monitor duties for Eagles of Death Metal, Neon Trees, CrystalMethod and Jane’s Addiction.
“At a time in my career when I thought I had heard the best that pro audio had to offer, VUE entered the picture and completely reset the benchmark regarding sonic performance and versatility,” said London. “I honestly couldn’t be more energised to join such a paradigm-shifting young brand. This is a dream come true for a lifelong gearhead like me.”
London and the rest of the VUE audiotechnik crew will be exhibiting at InfoComm 2018 at the Los Angeles Convention Centre.
