Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) has named Robert Scovill as Senior Live Sound Market Manager to support the company’s teams on product definition and positioning, demos and trainings, and providing ‘thought leadership’.

Robert ScovillBringing practical experience as both a professional mixer and a manufacturer, Scovill’s role will include ‘refining and shaping’ all public-facing communication. These duties include assisting with written product descriptions, as well as the listening and voicing of new and existing production-level audio systems. He will drive the creation of educational how-to pieces on industry topics such as tuning and deploying large-scale ADAPTive systems, passive and active articulated systems and subwoofer arrays.

‘Robert brings decades of pro audio and live sound expertise to EAW, and further demonstrates our commitment to being a leading loudspeaker manufacturer in the industry,’ says EAW President, TJ Smith. ‘From driving strategy and tactical development to helping define and finalise products with an end-user perspective, Robert will take on a multi-tiered role.’

As a respected and decorated concert sound audio engineer, Scovill has mixed more than 4,000 live events. He is widely regarded as the pioneer of virtual soundcheck and live multitrack workflows and, over his 40-plus years in the industry, has touched nearly every facet of the music production industry from recording studio, record label, live concert and broadcast.

Scovill has been the recipient of numerous individual accolades for his work within live sound, including six TEC Awards, three Parnelli Awards and a 2022 CMA Touring Awards nod for FOH Mixer of the Year for his recent work with Kenny Chesney. He’s also held the role of music mixer for high-profile events over recent years, such as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions, Latin Grammy’s Person of The Year, and the iHeart Radio Music Festival.

From 2005 to 2023 Scovill was a member of the development team for the Avid Venue Live Sound Environment. Over his 18 year tenure, he touched nearly all aspects of the product’s success including product workflow definition, product positioning and public facing marketing. His range of experience and positive impact will be a significant benefit for EAW in that it’s a proven example of Scovill bridging his in-field experience with the goals and needs of a manufacturer. Scovill continues to contribute to the live sound and pro audio market through his educational efforts, which include keynote addresses for organisations, as well as various presentations, podcasts, articles and videos sharing his knowledge and experience with the industry and technology.

‘I’m eager to help drive this brand to a position worthy of its incredible legacy of innovation and excellence in professional audio,’ he says. ‘EAW is now beautifully positioned to make some major strides over the coming years toward writing another wonderful chapter in its ongoing story.’
