I'm Rob Sherred and I’m a freelance front of house sound engineer and tour manager from the UK, in my 40’s, I’ve been mixing for many years.
I started out mixing from a very early age around 13 / 14 years old in a local theatre in the UK, Where my mother worked.. and I was taught the basics of sound.
After a while I went to a live venue called “The Esplanade “ which moved and became “Chinnery’s” and I was the in house sound tech, we had such bands as Pearl Jam, The Wildhearts, Thunder, Cannibal Corpse, Artic Monkeys, Baby Shambles, Hard Fi, Mew, Span, Fozzy, Skindred etc.. I have always been a in house sound engineer when I’m not touring.
During this time I was going to alot of metal concerts in London and seeing lots of classic line up’s and shows, and always watched the sound engineer.. I was lucky to meet some of the bands I used to see and I became friends with them which I still am today.
Around 17/18 years old I started touring and I still do it today, I am very passionate about my job and how I do it, i always enjoy new challenges and i actually enjoy to travel !!!
I think that I have been to most places in the world for festivals, tours, club shows... I’m currently based in Oslo, Norway.
As you can see from my list of bands that i work / worked with and quotes, I seem to be on the right track and appear to have quite a good reputation.
If you are interested in me or have any questions and would like to use my services, please contact me for details...
I have a full microphone package from Audix Microphones which I always travel with... I’m very lucky to be endorsed from them, they are a great brand and awesome people.

THE MAN THE MYTH THE LEGEND....GB"

"I’ve worked with Rob for many years, Hopefully many years to come as well, Top notch professionally as well as personally.“
"Over the past 20 years Rob Sherred has been a crucial part of our band's team and live adventures. And when all comes to all, being adventurous is what this is really all about. Traveling, exploring, meeting people and dealing with whatever challenge that jump at us before, during or after a show. Whether it has been technical problems, delays, missing luggage and what not, Rob has always had our back and made sure we are able to pull off the best show possible. Also in terms of sound engineering Rob has proven the unique ability to adapt to any given venue and acoustic challenges. When Rob is around, we always know we are able to pull of a great sounding show whether it is a small club or an arena. Rob's long experience, his professionalism, friendship and loyalty is second to none and deeply appreciated by the whole band. We cherish Rob as our tour manager, FoH and friend!"

"Having toured Europe and done international festivals with Rob as a sound technician / foh, I can truly say that not only is he super professional when it comes to everything sound related but also a super nice and relaxed dude. Thats actually more important that it might sound at first, because in the hectic everyday life on the road, you need at least one calm mind that knows how to deal with the unpredictability of rock and roll related mishaps, because as they say - the show must go on - no matter what."
