Trevor Horn’s Band to Perform Live at MPG Awards 2014


Renowned producer, musician and songwriter Trevor Horn has revealed his plans to perform live at next month’s Music Producers Guild Awards in London – and that he will be joined on stage by some ‘special guests’.

Horn, who is attending the event to receive the Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award, will perform as part of the supergroup Producers, the band he established in 2006 with former 10CC musician Lol Crème, award-winning engineer and producer Stephen Lipson and drummer Ash Soan. This exciting collection of extraordinarily highly regarded producers and artists have scored over 200 hit singles and albums, including their own debut album Made in Basing Street, which was released in 2012.

Music Producers Guild Chairman Steve Levine says: “A live performance by Producers is quite a coup for the MPG and we’re really thrilled that guests attending our 2014 Awards ceremony will have the opportunity to witness this unique performance. The MPG Awards are always a popular event on the music industry calendar because they are such a joyful celebration of the UK’s recording talent, but when you get the chance to see a supergroup play live as well, you just know it’s going to be a brilliant night.”

The MPG is presenting Trevor Horn with the PPL-sponsored Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award in recognition of a remarkable career that has spanned more than three decades. The award he will receive from the MPG acknowledges those who have made a significant contribution over a long period of time to the success of the UK music recording industry.

Described variously as ‘unashamedly an exhibitionist’, an ‘architect of sound’ and a producer whose work is linked by a common theme of excellence, Horn has been responsible for numerous hits for artists such as ABC, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones and Robbie Williams. He first achieved success as an artist with The Buggles, Yes and Art of Noise, but eventually turned to production and song writing where he established a reputation for pushing the boundaries of music production. During the early 1980s he set up Sarm Studios in London and also ZTT Records and music publishing company Perfect Songs.

Trevor Horn will be presented with his award at the MPG’s 2014 Awards Ceremony, which takes place on February 13th at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London. Tickets for the event are available by emailing event organiser, Joe Edwards. Email: joe@ilikethesoundofthat.com
