David Powles

In over 45  years as a Sound Engineer in the professional music business, the experience David Powles has gained both as a sound engineer and as a person, has been considerable.


Since joining Electrosound, one of the UK's most prominent Sound Hire companies in 1970, David toured with many internationally-renowned, and often not-so-renowned artists, of virtually every style.  


In 1985 David moved to Germany, working mostly as a freelance sound engineer for artists (particularly Folk and Jazz musicians) on tour as well as numerous corporate productions, such as galas, seminars & conferences, trade fair presentations and technical demonstrations.


In 2003 he founded David Powles Audio Consulting in Germany, endorsing and making technical presentations of Pro audio products, holding seminars and workshops for up and coming technicians and musicians, as well as working further as a freelance Sound Engineer.


Recently he decided to get back to his real passion, putting his experience into working with developing technicians and musicians. He and his wife moved from Germany to Northern Ireland, were he has founded David Powles Specialist Audio to support professional level, as well as up-and-coming artists, using his experience to help them achieve great results while helping them not only to buy the right equipment, but also to get the best out of top quality Pro Audio equipment.


As a Christian, David feels a particular calling to support Churches and their technical staff to achieve a better understanding of their equipment, regardless of who has installed it,  and thereby a better quality of sound for all worshippers.
