EUROPE’S ‘BEST BLUES GUITARIST’, ERJA LYYTINEN, TOURS WITH ALLEN & HEATH SQ-5

Voted ‘Best Guitarist’ at the recent European Blues Awards (2017), Finnish guitarist and singer-songwriter, Erja Lyytinen, hits the road this Autumn to begin her exciting “Another World” tour across Europe, accompanied by an Allen & Heath SQ-5 digital mixing system.

Supplied by Allen & Heath’s Finnish distributors, F-Musiikki-Oy, the single SQ-5 handles both FOH and Monitor duties for the tour, with Lyytinen herself commenting favourably on the sound of the SQ: “The new SQ mixer works great with the IEM and the whole band has been very satisfied with the improved sound quality.”

The compact set-up comprises an SQ connected via SLink to an AR2412 AudioRack for remote I/O, which is rack-mounted with a wireless IEM system and positioned on stage for a fast, simple set-up at any venue.

Sound engineer Olli Huttunen adds, “SQ-5 is a compact, versatile and exceptionally good sounding console. I love the ability it has to change the surface to just the way I want, this is particularly useful when handling IEM´s from the FOH position."

The tour currently consists of 40 shows across Europe, starting in Finland and making its way to the UK and Germany this November, and supports her brand new single “Another World”, released October 5th.
