HARMAN Professional’s AKG Acoustics, JBL Professional and Lexicon Continue Sponsorship of The Recording Academy® Producers & Engineers Wing®

NORTHRIDGE, California – HARMAN Professional today announced its AKG Acoustics, JBL Professional and Lexicon brands are maintaining their status as official “P&E Wing Sustaining Partners” with the renewal of their sponsorship of P&E Wing Sustaining Partners® through 2013. This sponsorship will include cooperation in a variety of events and activities throughout the year, a presence on the P&E Wing section of the GRAMMY365 member Web site and sustaining sponsorship of the P&E Wing Manufacturers Council.

Over the past 12 months, HARMAN Professional supported P&E Wing events such as the P&E Wing’s “Mic to Mix” event, held at Conway Recording Studios in Los Angeles, which featured a live acoustic recording session by the pop/soul group Elaine Faye & Company, engineered by 2-time GRAMMY® winner Nathaniel Kunkel. HARMAN also sponsored “The Hang with HARMAN” at Nashville’s famed Sound Stage studios, featuring 3-time GRAMMY-winning engineer Chuck Ainlay (Mark Knopfler, Miranda Lambert, George Strait) and artist Betsey Long. At both events, attendees were able to hear various models of JBL studio monitors, AKG headphones and AKG microphones, and Lexicon PCM Native Reverb software plug-ins.

In 2012, HARMAN also celebrated its fourth year as the “official sound partner” of the GRAMMY Awards® and served as the title sponsor of the Pre-GRAMMY Gala, produced by Clive Davis and The Recording Academy.

“The work of the P&E Wing is vital to the advancement of the recording industry. As manufacturers of the tools used to craft today’s recordings, we feel an obligation not only to perfect our technologies, but to educate the market about the benefits,” said Peter Chaikin, Senior Manager, Recording & Broadcast Marketing, JBL Professional. “Our continued partnership with the P&E Wing provides a channel for valuable exchange with talented producers and engineers at the forefront of the industry. We are looking forward to building on this successful relationship with a terrific 2013!”

“Our ongoing partnership with the P&E Wing continues to strengthen our relationships within the recording industry, enabling us to connect with the world’s most renowned producers and engineers as well as aspiring professionals,” said Joe Wagoner, Product Manager, Wireless-Tour-Install, AKG. “We anticipate even greater success in 2013 in our efforts to provide the recording community with world-class technology and our relationship with the P&E Wing plays a significant role in our ability to do so.”

“We are proud to extend our relationship with the P&E Wing as they continue their outstanding work with major events and initiatives that support and foster a sense of community for the rapidly growing community of highly talented producers and engineers,” said Noel Larson, Market Manager, Portable PA, Tour and Recording at HARMAN Music Group.
