London, UK: A host of music industry VIPs and celebrities filled London’s Cafe de Paris on February 7th for the 2013 Music Producers Guild Awards – an annual event that recognises the creativity, skill and talents of music recording professionals.

A total of 18 awards were presented (see full list of winners below), with the top award for Producer of the Year – which also earned its winner a BRIT Award for Best Producer – going to Paul Epworth for his work on Florence + The Machine’s Ceremonials.

This year’s Music Producers Guild Awards recipients covered a wide variety of musical genres and also spanned the generations, with young recording professionals such as Charlie Andrews and Charlie Hugall sharing the accolades with world renowned producers such as Sir George Martin CBE and Glyn Johns, who have been inspirational for so many up and coming producers and engineers.

Steve Levine, chairman of the Music Producers Guild, says: “When it comes to talent and creativity, British music production has a long legacy that is internationally recognised and respected. Younger recording professionals are the life blood of our industry and we are delighted that so many of them have been Award recipients this year. Recording professionals play a vitally important part in the success of the UK and international music industry and we are happy to honour their achievements, not just to give them to accolades they deserve but also to motivate the next generation of 100,000 music students in the UK who will be the producers and engineers of the future.”

The Music Producers Guild Awards 2013 also highlighted the close relationship between artists and recording professionals, with many sending messages of endorsement to their producers.

Florence Welch, who backed Paul Epworth’s nomination for Producer of the Year, says: “I knew Paul was the only producer I wanted to work with on Ceremonials. His work on Lungs really stood out for me, especially Cosmic Love, but he really surpassed himself on Ceremonials. He took what we had started on Lungs to stratospheric heights, without fear or compromise, and secured Florence + The Machine a singular sound. His innovation and passion are constantly inspiring, and I am grateful to have worked with him on an album that I am so proud of.”

Other award recipients included Sir George Martin CBE, who won the Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award and Richard Russell, head of A&R at XL Recordings, who won the new A&R Award, which honours an A&R executive who has been a genuine champion of the creative process across one or more projects in the past year.

The Music Producers Guild Awards are now firmly established as a ‘must attend’ event on the music industry calendar. Hosted by Lauren Laverne, tickets for this year’s Awards were once again in huge demand and the event was full.

“The fact that this event is always so well supported indicates the value the wider music industry puts on the work recording professional do,” Steve Levine adds. “We are delighted that, once again, the Music Producers Guild Awards has been so enthusiastically received by such an illustrious audience.”
