The Music Producers Guild Honours Dave Stewart

Multimedia entrepreneur Dave Stewart has been named by the Music Producers Guild as the 2015 recipient of its Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award, sponsored by PPL.

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 Stewarts 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 OConnor, 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.

In addition, 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 overseeing the careers of seven young artists while acting as Brand Manager to legend artists.

Beyond his creative work as a musician, Stewart is a renowned producer, author, director, photographer, filmmaker, and philanthropist. He has scored films for several directors, including Robert Altman, Paul Verhoven, and Ted Demme, and has written and produced the title songs for many hit movies. Together with Mick Jagger, he wrote and produced the score for Alfie, starring Jude Law, which won the pair a Golden Globe for Best Original Song.

Peter Leathem, CEO, PPL, 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 worlds 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."

Now firmly established as a must-attend industry event, the Music Producers Guild Awards celebrate the enormous contribution that recording professionals make to the success of the UKs music industry. Last years Awards attracted more than 300 stars and music industry VIPs who turned out in force to see 16 Award recipients honoured. In 2015, the MPG is once again collaborating with the BRITS to present the winner of its Producer of the Year category with a BRIT Award for Best Producer.

Tickets for the MPG Awards 2015 are now available to order through the website. For full details please visit http://www.mpg.org.uk/mpg-awards/tickets/.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available for the MPG Awards 2015 and any company that would like to be part of this exciting event should contact Joe Edwards.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
