Having known Dave Betterridge since he was a little pup Drew joined the team at Loud and Clear in 2011. Graduating with a Bachelor of Music from The Australian Institute of Music in 2008, Drew has a passion for working with people and all things musical! With experience in studio recording and mixing, live music, teaching, theatre productions and as a musician as well, he brings a wide range of experience and knowledge across many genres to the job. And nothing beats a positive can-do attitude, patience, a good set of ears, oh, and of course a good old laugh and smile too!
and HR Manager
Thanks to her mum who took her to every show that came to Sydney, this Blue Mountains girl had a love of musicals from a young age. As a young singer she performed with Hugh Jackman, Marina Prior and The Wiggles; appeared in some commercials involving airlines and chips; sang at sporting grand finals; and toured the UK and USA finishing with a gala concert at Carnegie Hall in NYC and a performance for the Royal Family in London. By her teens she switched her love to backstage and arts management. She completed a Bachelor of Music majoring in Arts and Entertainment Management at AIM while working in the Music Department of Disney’s The Lion King at Capitol Theatre. Working as an Events Manager in Sydney with many high profile and large outdoor events up her sleeve, she joined L&C part time in 2008 as an all dancing Mic Tech and in 2011 began her learning curve as an Engineer.
Erin couldn’t be happier to turn her love of musicals, sound and arts management into her dream job and in 2012 joined the crew full time.
Senior Audio Engineer
and Systems Manager
Oliver started his career in the arts industry from the early age of ten where he volunteered his technical skills at the local theatre company. From there he pursued the technical side of theatre and in particular sound all throughout high school working in various roles on productions from plays such as The Crucible to musicals like Les Misérables. After high school he detoured a little to study a Bachelor of Arts, Screen at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) before returning to theatre (with a little bit of film on the side) to join the Loud and Clear team as an Audio Engineer and Systems Engineer. He continues to enjoy mixing musical theatre far more than he should for his job as well as working in film, television and classical recording.
