Dave Stewart has been named by the Music Producers Guild as the 2015 recipient of its Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award.
The award will be presented to Stewart at the MPG 2015 Awards, which takes place on February 12 next year at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London.
Stewart’s music career spans three decades and more than 100 million album sales. He has produced albums and co-written songs for Bono, Bryan Ferry, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Katy Perry, Mick Jagger, Sinead O’Connor, Joss Stone, and many more, garnering numerous Producer, Songwriter, Golden Globe and Grammy Awards along the way.
In addition to his long list of musical achievements, Stewart has recently expanded the management and production divisions of his company, producing videos for Deadmau5, Neon Trees, Lionel Richie, Kaskade, and many more. Dave Stewart Entertainment has offices in Los Angeles and Nashville.
MPG Awards director Tony Platt, says: “Dave Stewart embodies all the qualities of a modern music producer, embracing all forms of media including music, film, TV and photography. His various roles from musician to producer, director and co-founder of a highly successful creative member’s club underpin his collaborative attitude towards creativity.
“In this respect he is a shining example of everything that is great about the UK music industry, which is why we, with the support of PPL, are honouring him with this prestigious MPG Award for Outstanding Contribution to UK Music – in short because he is outstanding.”
Peter Leathem, CEO, PPL (sponsor of the award), says: “Dave Stewart has had a phenomenal career and has long been recognised as one of the most respected and sought after producers in the industry. Having collaborated with so many of the world’s leading artists as well as co-founding Eurythmics alongside Annie Lennox, it is only fitting that he receives the MPG’s Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award in 2015.”
