USA - Described by CMT as a “true representation of current country for the next generation”, newcomer Cash Campbell burst onto the music scene in 2017 with his debut song, Cannonball, and has already racked up 20m streams and views worldwide. He has built a fan base on the road with headlining shows and sharing the bill with A-list acts on multiple tours, including his current trek on which he’s carrying a DiGiCo SD12 console to run both FOH and monitors.
Chosen by Dallas-based Jordan Bledsoe, who serves as Campbell’s FOH engineer, production manager and tour manager, the SD12 and its accompanying DiGiCo SD-Rack were rented from Arlington’s B&L Sound and Lighting, which is supplying the tour’s complete control package.
“This has been my first experience with DiGiCo and, to be honest, I had been intimidated to use one because of how detailed you can be with it,” shares Bledsoe. “But after a short amount of time prepping on the desk as well as the offline editing software, I realised that detail is what I enjoy the most. Now I find that the workflow and sound of this desk make it hard to imagine going back to anything else. The SD12 is our console of choice moving forward.”
With Cash Campbell’s previous tour jaunt being a co-headlining run with Austin Burke, the artist and his crew are now out on string of dates opening for Dylan Scott. As with the previous trek, Bledsoe is once again manning the SD12, which is connected to the SD-Rack over Optocore fibre and used in conjunction with a Waves SoundGrid Extreme Server and Shure PSM 1000 IEMs for all band members.
“This console is right for us for a lot of reasons,” Bledsoe concludes. “The channel count and flexibility are the biggest things for me, but as someone who started out in the studio, I’m also really impressed by the sound of the mic pres and desk in general.”
