The Music Producers Guild Honours Dave Stewart
The award will be presented to Dave Stewart at the MPG 2015 Awards, which take place on February 12th next year at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London.
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 (http://www/thehospitalclub.com) 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.”
Recognised as one of the most respected and accomplished talents in the music industry today, Dave Stewart’s music career spans three decades and more than 100 million album sales, highlighted by his collaboration with Annie Lennox in the ground breaking pop-rock duo Eurythmics.
Behind the scenes, 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.
Continuing to stay busy in all aspects of the musical and cultural landscape, working with both legends and undiscovered talent, Stewart produced four albums in 2014 alone: Hollie Stephenson, a 16 year old singer/songwriter from London whom Stewart has been developing since she was 13 years old; Stevie Nicks’ eighth solo album 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault comprised of unrecorded songs written between 1969 and 1995; Thomas Lindsey, a one-of-a-kind young male singer from Louisiana; and Los Angeles-based, London-born 14 year old soulful female singer/songwriter, KAYA, who recently signed her first deal with Warner Bros Records.
