MPG AWARDS 2015 TO HONOUR DAVE STEWART & OTHERS

LONDON, February 2015: The Music Producers Guild (MPG) Awards for 2015 will be presented at London's Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel on February 12th, with producers Jake Gosling, Paul Epworth, Pharrell Williams and T-Bone Burnett just some of names who have made it onto the short list.

MPG chairman Steve Levine commented: "Once again we had a fantastic response to our request for nominations, with many new names featured in just about every awards category. MPG Full members have now cast their votes to create our shortlist for 2015 and the Award winners have been decided by a panel of judges who met before the end last year." The MPG Awards recognises the enormous contribution made by recording professionals to the success of the UK's music industry. The winner of the MPG Producer of the Year Award also receives a BRIT Award for Best Producer.

In addition, former Eurythmics star Dave Stewart has already been named as the 2015 recipient of its Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award, sponsored by PPL. MPG Awards Director Tony Platt said: "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 (The Hospital 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."
