Country artist Granger Smith’s 2016 touring exposed the rising artist to even larger audiences, and featured a unique lighting design by Sean Semler that included 12 High End Systems SHAPESHIFTER C1s.
Lured away from another artist, Sean says, "Granger's live performance and overall attitude was just infectious to me - and here I am today.” As Smith is very ‘hands-on’ with programming ideas for his touring show, Semler explains, "Granger has a very creative mind, and likes to be a part of the brainstorming process. We’ll bounce ideas off one another and design and program the show. I value this type of working relationship - I believe it ensures the probability of the wants and needs of the artist. When I first came on board, my PM and I discussed budget and options for a freshly designed lighting rig that would achieve looks not being utilized by the majority of touring groups. I felt like the SHAPESHIFTER was my answer, so we quickly decided to lease a package that we took on the FGL Canada tour.”
"We decided to use a dozen SHAPESHIFTERS as part of our floor package. We were direct support for this tour so we wanted a powerful look from the floor to compliment the house rig above. I was very pleased with the punch and overall beam throw in these larger arenas. It definitely provided a different dynamic than the traditional moving fixtures out there.”
