Roy Weard - Sound Engineer

 

Roy Weard has been involved with the music business since the late sixties. He started out as a solo performer and later fronted several rock bands (Wooden Lion / Dogwatch / Roy Weard and Last Post). As sound systems improved and became more technical in nature his interest broadened to incorporate aspects of sound engineering. He ran a small sound company in London for a while before moving on to work with more sophisticated systems but this grounding in primitive equipment has given him the ability to produce a good sound quality in the most challenging of circumstances.

He worked with many touring acts over the last 30 years and further broadened his abilities to include live recording.
