The hosts are joined in Episode 124 by Adam Labov, who works with numerous support acts on major tours. They discuss the relatiosnhip of those artists with headliners as well as pulling double duty as tour manager and front of house engineer on the same tour. They also talk about the importance of being able to relate to the artist and music you’r mixing in order to translate it well. Just a few of the bands Labov has worked with recently include Mini Mansions, Goldroom, The Record Company and more. The Signal To Noise podcast is sponsored by Audix and Allen & Heath.
