Nashville, TN (February 3, 2017)—Country singer Michael Ray has been on the road in recent months with his Think a Little Less tour, following a string of Top-20 hits. Throughout the journey, Nashville-based production company Morris has provided a custom audio system and a timecode-based lighting rig for the production.
Chris Leonard, Ray’s production manager, chose the DiGiCo S21 console for front of house based on the channel count, sound quality, input availability,and its new place in the market. Leonard’s made use of the built-in 48-channel USB interface, allowing for both multitracking shows and virtual soundchecks. Morris also built custom racks for the audio package, which minimized space and created clean ergonomics for operation. Additionally, Morris provided Ray with a Waves Audio SoundGrid MultiRack system; Leonard is a certified Waves Live Sound Artist.
“Each night, I was so confident in the audio and lighting systems that Morris helped us create. A certain gratification comes when the first song starts and everything runs smoothly,” Chris Leonard said. “It’s been great working with Morris to problem solve through ingenuity and experience.”
“It has been incredible to watch Michael and his team evolve on this tour,” Joseph Logsdon, account manager at Morris said. “I look forward to another great year with this group of talented musicians and technicians. With this much talent on the stage and behind the scenes, fantastic things happen.”
