This time we’re joined by Ken “Pooch” Van Druten, one of the most in-demand front of house engineers in pro audio, having mixed for artists as successful and wide-ranging as Iron Maiden, Linkin Park, Michael McDonald, Katy Perry, Motley Crue, Seal, KISS, Jay-Z, and many more.
Pooch is also a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston and has been voted FOH Engineer of the Year twice by the Parnelli Awards as well as eight times by the Tourlink Top Dog Awards. He took some time out of his busy schedule to chat with us about his career and his approach to his work.
